Your Call 111907 Cross Cultural Care-giving

How do people from different cultures care for aging loved ones? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a discussion about culturally sensitive care giving. The elderly population is growing every year and it is becoming increasingly diverse. What is being done to insure culturally sensitive care? Has awareness changed from generation to generation? Are you receiving support from a caregiver from a different cultural background? Join us on the next Your Call with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
