Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between acculturation, service awareness, and confidence in home care services in the Mexican American caregiver population. This research is based on a larger study by Dr. Janice Crist from 2009-2012 of Mexican American elders and caregivers known as ENCASA, or Elder and Caregiver Assistance and Support At-home. Results illustrated little overall association between acculturation and awareness. However, fear and worry, a subscale of confidence in home care services, was significantly correlated with acculturation. Results suggest a significant need to improve cultural adaptations to home care services for this population.
