Caregivers’ Circle – How Culture Influences Care and Support in the Latino Community

There are many aspects of caregiving that are universal.  We all grieve for our loved ones.  We all want the best for our families.  We all want to do anything we can to help.  But the way that we approach caregiving and the expectations that we have about what families should and should not be doing varies greatly among different cultures.  This week’s guest, Martha Rañon, the Director of Education and Outreach for the Southern Caregiver Resource Center, discusses the unique influences of culture on Latino caregivers.
