Finding Assisted Living For Hispanic and Latinx American Seniors
Reviewed by: Molli Grossman, PhD
Elders are an important part of the Hispanic and Latinx American community. Their unique experiences help to keep younger generations in touch with their heritage and cultural traditions. Seniors who are facing the prospect of moving into an assisted living facility or residential community that better meets their physical needs may feel like they're losing touch with their social identity, but that doesn’t have to happen.
Assisted living communities in your area may already be catering to diverse populations by offering bilingual staff, international cuisine, culturally appropriate activities and religious services. Choosing a facility that’s a good fit socially and culturally is important for ensuring that your loved one’s needs are met. It can also prevent quality of care concerns since studies have shown that Hispanic seniors are more likely to live in poor-quality nursing homes when compared to other groups. Fortunately, numerous organizations are dedicated to closing this gap and ensuring that Hispanic and Latinx American seniors have equal access to health care and long-term care.
This guide features information to help Hispanic seniors and their families make informed decisions about long-term care. You’ll find tips about finding suitable facilities, paying for care, mitigating guilt and managing other difficult emotions.
Common Concerns of Hispanic Americans Moving to Assisted Living
According to the Administration for Community Living, a U.S. government agency, there were over 4.6 million Hispanic senior citizens living in the United States in 2019. This number is projected to reach 19.9 million by 2060. Despite this growing demographic, Latin American seniors often share similar concerns about long-term care, especially when it comes to family, food and community ties.
- Food: From carnitas to pupusas, culinary traditions are an important part of Hispanic culture. Seniors may worry that their long-term care community won’t offer the flavorful entrees, sides and special holiday dishes they’re used to.
- Religious Services: Among Hispanic seniors who identify as Catholic and Protestant, a significant majority say that religion is important to them. Additionally, more than 90% of Hispanics identify with a particular religion, so it’s important for facilities to have appropriate religious services.
- Language: Seniors and immigrants who learned English as a second or third language may be more comfortable speaking Spanish or a regional dialect, such as Q’eqchi’, when they’re at home. Potential language barriers may make it more difficult for seniors to access the care that they need.
- Family Connections: Older adults who are moving into assisted living may worry about losing connections with family and missing out on important events, such as birthdays and holiday parties.
- Community Ties: Members of immigrant communities often have close ties with others who share similar experiences. While Hispanic senior centers can be a lifeline and social outlet for some older adults, this can make it more difficult for seniors to transition to a different environment.
- Cultural Differences: In the past, Latin American residents may have been segregated or treated differently than other seniors in long-term care communities. This can cause fear and anxiety for individuals who feel they may face a similar situation.
Dealing With Cultural Guilt of Moving a Loved One to Assisted Living
Deciding to move into an assisted living facility is a tough decision, and it can be even more difficult if you’re making this choice for someone you love. Often the decision is accompanied by feelings of guilt, amplified by Hispanic/Latinx cultural expectations that families should take care of their loved ones, no matter what. If you’re feeling guilty about moving an elderly relative into a senior living community, consider the following to help process your emotions:
- Guilt is natural: It’s only natural to feel guilty. This strong emotion usually stems from the love you have for your relative and the realization that you’re unable to give them the care they need. Reassure yourself that you’re making the best decision for your loved one.
- It helps to talk it out Talking with someone about your feelings can help you work through the guilt. Whether you choose to speak with a friend, therapist or spiritual leader, opening up and getting an unbiased view of your situation can help and may prevent further stress and anxiety.
- Assisted living provides 24/7 care: Few of us can devote 24 hours to an elderly relative. Between work, family and other commitments, it’s just not physically possible. Assisted living provides the 24/7 supervision, care and assistance your loved one needs. It also ensures seniors eat regularly and promptly receive any necessary medical care.
- Your loved one will thrive: Assisted living facilities provide valuable social and recreational opportunities that help older adults remain active and engaged. Your loved one can enjoy all the aspects of living within a community of peers.
- You may strengthen your relationship: Without the worry of providing care, you can turn your attention to strengthening your bond with a loved one. Your frequent visits can help maintain your connection, develop a deeper relationship and make new memories, all helping you enjoy the time you share and overcome guilty feelings.

Understanding the Cost of Spanish-Speaking Senior Living and How to Pay
According to national data from Genworth Financial’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living typically costs around $4,500 per month. Many long-term care communities employ multilingual staff, and they're required to provide a certain level of care by law, so it shouldn't cost extra to move into a bilingual or Spanish-speaking community.
The Varying Cost of Assisted Living
Long-term care costs will vary depending on the facility you select, its pricing structure and its amenities. Prices also vary by geographic area, including what state you live in and whether you’re in a rural or metropolitan area. The following includes pricing information for several states with the largest number of Hispanic and Latinx American residents.
- National: $4,500
- California: $5,250
- Texas: $3,998
- Florida: $4,000
- New York: $4,580
- Illinois: $4,488
- Arizona: $4,000
- New Jersey: $6,495
- Colorado: $4,750
How to Pay for Assisted Living
Assisted living can be expensive if you’re paying for care out of pocket, although seniors can avoid some costs of maintaining their own home or apartment. Fortunately, there are a variety of financial assistance programs to help families cover these costs. Here are a few ways to pay for assisted living.
- Private Pay: Most seniors pay for assisted living out of pocket using funds from Social Security, retirement accounts and pensions or their personal savings.
- Long-Term Care Insurance: Long-term care insurance can provide a fixed daily amount that can go toward your assisted living expenses.
- Medicaid Waivers: Many states offer assisted living waivers for seniors who meet medical and financial requirements. These programs cover care, but they don't cover room and board.
- VA Benefits: Veterans who receive a military pension and need day-to-day assistance may qualify for a monthly stipend to help with the cost of assisted living or long-term care.
- Financial Products: Seniors who own their own home may be able to use certain financial products, such as a bridge loan, line of credit or reverse mortgage, to tap into some of their home’s equity. Life insurance can also provide access to cash.
