Respect for elders is one of the most enduring values of Hispanic and Latinx cultures. Caregivers see it as a privilege to nurture older adults, listen to their stories and tend to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Despite this commitment to caregiving, not everyone has the capacity to provide full-time care for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other family members. They may be busy with work, overloaded with household responsibilities or unable to physically provide the care their loved ones need.

If you can’t provide full-time care, senior living is a viable option, but it’s not always as simple as picking a nearby facility and helping your loved one move. Hispanic and Latinx Americans are more likely than white Americans to reside in poor-quality nursing homes, making family members worry about their health and safety. Many seniors also worry that they won’t be able to carry on their cultural traditions or speak their native languages if they move to a senior living community.

This guide provides an overview of the most common concerns related to finding the right assisted living community for Hispanic and Latinx seniors. It also includes tips for easing the transition to senior care and offers a comprehensive list of resources.

Common Concerns Hispanic Americans Have Related to Assisted Living

Assisted living gives older adults the opportunity to live in a safe environment, form new friendships and get help with medication administration, grooming and other activities. Even though senior living offers many helpful services, some Hispanic and Latinx Americans hesitate to move to assisted living communities due to concerns about the potential for discrimination or the fear of having to abandon their cultural traditions. These are some of their most common concerns.

  • Dietary considerations: Food is extremely important to Hispanic and Latinx cultures, with some individuals believing that illnesses come from eating certain foods at the wrong time of the day. Some seniors are concerned about having to eat bland food or losing access to their favorite herbs and spices if they move to assisted living.
  • Language barriers: Language barriers are a potential safety issue, as they can make it difficult for staff members to understand a Hispanic and Latinx senior’s personal or medical needs. Seniors who don’t speak the same language as other residents are also likely to end up feeling isolated.
  • Discriminatory behavior: Historically, Hispanic and Latinx Americans have faced discrimination from members of other cultural groups. Some family members are concerned that their older loved ones will receive lower-quality care or find themselves excluded from social activities due to prejudice.
  • Religious concerns: For Hispanic and Latinx Americans, churches are an important source of social connections and educational opportunities. Older adults may worry that they won’t be able to attend church services or celebrate important religious holidays if they move to a senior living community.
  • Cultural considerations: Participating in cultural celebrations helps older adults stay connected to their heritage. Seniors may hesitate to move to assisted living if they’re concerned about not being able to celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week), Día de Muertos and other culturally important occasions.
  • Health issues: As noted previously, Hispanic and Latinx Americans are more likely to end up in poor-quality nursing homes. If your loved one has a chronic health condition, it’s extremely important to check out each assisted living community thoroughly to make sure it can meet their needs.

Tips for Dealing With Cultural Guilt of Moving a Loved One to Assisted Living

Since caring for older adults is such an important part of Hispanic and Latinx cultures, it’s natural to worry about your decision to move a loved one to senior living. That worry can interfere with other aspects of your life, making it important to address it as soon as possible. Here are a few things you can try.

  • Acknowledge your feelings: The first step to healing is acknowledging that you feel guilty. You can’t address your feelings if you don’t acknowledge them.
  • Focus on the benefits of senior living: Once your loved one moves to senior living, you can rest easy knowing they’ll have someone available to help them. Assisted living also provides access to social activities, wellness programs and other services, allowing residents to live a full life. Thinking about these benefits can help you overcome your guilt.
  • See a counselor: If your guilt persists for months after your loved one moves to a senior living community, consider scheduling an appointment with a counselor. You’ll have the opportunity to talk through your feelings and make progress toward accepting the change.

Visit regularly: Even if the community you choose offers culturally responsive care, it’s important to visit your loved one as often as possible. You can help them stay connected to their heritage by bringing a traditional meal with you or stopping by to help them celebrate a holiday that’s important to your culture.

The Cost of Spanish-Speaking Senior Living and How To Pay

Image 3

Your location has a big impact on how much it costs to move to assisted living. The United States has a monthly median cost of $4,500, but seniors in some states pay much more. For example, the Genworth Financial Cost of Care Survey for 2021 revealed that Washington state has a median monthly cost of $6,000. Some states have costs lower than the national median, such as Arizona and Utah. Arizona’s monthly median is $4,000, while Utah’s is $3,500. Fortunately, you shouldn’t have to pay extra to have Spanish-speaking staff members care for your loved one.

How to Pay for Assisted Living

Medicare doesn’t generally cover assisted living expenses, and neither does standard Medicaid in most states, so it’s important to plan carefully for your loved one’s future. Here are some of the most common funding sources:

  • Medicaid waiver programs: To reduce Medicaid costs, some states have waiver programs designed to cover long-term care expenses. These programs vary by state, so check with your state Medicaid agency to find out what your loved one needs to do to qualify.
  • Long-term care insurance: This type of insurance pays a maximum daily benefit, giving covered individuals access to funds that can be used to pay for personal care and other assisted living services. Each insurance company offers different terms and premiums, so help them shop around if they don’t already have this type of coverage.
  • Government benefits: State and federal agencies offer a variety of benefits to seniors who qualify. Many benefit programs provide direct cash assistance, which may help your loved one cover more of their senior living expenses.
  • VA benefits: The Department of Veterans Affairs offers pensions and other benefits to eligible individuals. If your loved one served in the Armed Forces, they may qualify for VA benefits.
