Opinion: Latinos Must Be Part of Long-Term Care Discussion
"Addressing the needs of aging Latinos in [California] is not an issue that can be ignored or put off for future generations" when "a coming wave of need for services threatens the financial security of many Latinos," SCAN Foundation CEO and President Bruce Chernof writes in a HealthyCal opinion piece. "Californians must prepare for this wave of long-term care needs ... and Latinos must be part of this conversation," he adds. "Through leadership, prioritization and resolute action, we can find solutions so that all Californians can age with dignity in their communities for years to come, even in difficult financial times," he concludes.
