Alzheimer’s Disease: A Multi-Cultural Perspective

This documentary focuses on the actual experiences of four families as they care for an elder with Alzheimer’s Disease. Seen from the perspective of four ethnic minority groups — Chinese, Japanese, Latino, and Vietnamese — the video shows the obstacles they face, including:

  • language barriers
  • lack of support from the extended family
  • inaccurate information about the disease and its etiology
  • cultural norms that mitigate against long term placement.

Possible solutions to some of these problems are discussed by family members as well as professionals in the field of gerontology.
