Ethnic Elder Care a Growing Movement

Posted May 14 2009 4:31pm

Our elders come from many ethnic backgrounds. I'm not convinced it's easier for one culture than another to make a decision to "put them in a home." For most of us, it's wretching, confusing and anxiety provoking to make a decision that we need outside help to care for our elders. However, with people living longer, often with disabling conditions from strokes or dementia, we often have no choice but to get help. I address the progress the elder care industry is making with cultural differences in this post on my Our Alzheimer's blog:
