Abstract

Previous research indicates the older Hispanic population is one of the fastest growing groups in the United States, and this increase presents unique problems in long-term care delivery for the dementia patient. Late interface with long-term care services results in delayed diagnosis, significant impairments, and prolonged caregiver burden. Understanding the unique cultural influences in this population will assist the gerontologist in providing appropriate health care services.
