“Every individual deserves compassionate and respectful care that aligns with their beliefs and values. Understanding the prevalence and impact of dementia in specific communities, such as Latino communities, is crucial for providing culturally appropriate care that meets their unique needs.”
“Cultural competence in healthcare goes beyond language barriers and involves recognizing the significance of family involvement in healthcare decisions and providing care that aligns with their health beliefs. Latino families appreciate healthcare professionals who understand and respect their cultural beliefs, values, and practices. By working together to provide quality healthcare services that respect and honor cultural diversity, we can ensure that every member of our community receives the care they truly deserve.”
