If you visit The Digital Latina often you already know my family is very important to me. I’d do anything in my power to make them happy. This responsibility isn’t only geared towards my immediate family but also my elders. I’ll never forget the telephone conversations with my abuelita, before hanging up the phone she would say “Cuida tú mamá.” (Translation: “Take care of your mother.”) Although I was young, I put a lot of thought into what she said.
It is on the White Paper The State of the Hispanic Caregiver, released by Comfort Plus, that I learned I’m not alone. Did you know that in the next three decades, the Hispanic elderly population will increase by a whopping 555 percent? This calls for many caregivers to come forth in providing the best available care for their families. I also learned that nearly 350,000 elderly Hispanics depend on help from caregivers and that most care recipients are female. The challenges caregivers face span from financial and emotional to social and physical stress.
Fortunately, Comfort Plus made an initiative to not only make the best possible products available but the best possible service. Comfort Plus boasts a new section called “Comfort Plus Para Ti” section in which it’s specifically tailored for Spanish speakers. Isn’t that SO helpful?! In this section you’ll find such things as purchasing the best quality incontinence products easier to resources caregivers need in topics that take high priority.
My grandma passed away but her requests I turned into a promise. Thankfully, my mother is still young, beautiful (she may be reading this, you know ;)) and strong. She can still take care of herself but I feel the time will come when she will need me. Luckily, Comfort Plus just made it a little easier for this potential caregiver.
