Multicultural Aging

Multicultural Aging

Will S. 744—also known as the controversial 2013 immigration bill that is now under consideration by Congress—affect the caregiver and clinical workforce that is sorely needed to take care of America’s growing older adult population? Can telemedicine help diabetic elders in rural areas get faster and better care? If Bangladesh can become an Age-Friendly City, what about your city or town? Will the Affordable Care Act have a positive impact on health disparities among lower income elders? Can we teach long-term-care workers to treat all elders with respect, no matter their culture? ASA works hard to foster diversity and cultural competence. This page gathers that information—from LGBTQ legal issues to end-of-life beliefs among American Indians—so you can use it to help build the best programs and models that elevate, celebrate, support and care for multi-cultural populations.
