Latino Families Find Eldercare A Tough But Beautiful Mission - Latino Times

latinotimes.org [cached]

According to Henry Pacheco, MD, medical director of the National Hispanic Council on Aging, "What motivates Hispanics to become caregivers to their elders is familiarismo, their cultural values that are passed on from generation to generation."
Pacheco, who is from Bolivia, said Hispanics learn the obligation to care for family elders from an early age. "In many cases it is an honor or a cultural obligation, just like the responsibility of taking care of your children," he added. Most Latinos prefer to take care of their elders at home were they can speak their native language and eat Latino cuisine, instead of sending them to nursing homes. Also, it is almost impossible for most Hispanic families to pay between $8,000 and $10,000 a month for institutional care in a nursing home, Pacheco said. Pacheco of the National Hispanic Council on Aging emphasized, "That pressure of having to look for other alternatives to take care of their loved ones-who depend solely on them-causes a lot of stress because they are caught in a predicament where they have to choose between their personal needs and the cultural obligation of taking care of their elders.
