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.

Dr. Henry Pacheco, Director of Medicine and Public Health for NHCOA, added the voice of one of our Diverse Elders Coalition partners.  Dr. Pacheco explained that the HIV/AIDS rate for those Latinos who are 50-plus in the United States is five times higher than their non-Hispanic white counterparts.  He talked about how the population that NHCOA serves has not been reached or targeted in outreach efforts for a variety of reasons, including the usual misconception that older adults don't use drugs and don't have sex, but also, cultural, linguistic, and generational barriers.  These barriers can be overcome, he said, by efforts tailored to the Hispanic community, including the use of of "pase la voz," word-of-mouth, to spread awareness, and "charlas," informal educational sessions, specifically designed to reach Hispanic older adults.
