1 in 5 Latinos in the U.S. are Unpaid Family Caregivers; AARP and the Ad Council Offer Support in New PSA Campaign
Nearly seven million Latinos in the U.S. provide unpaid care to an aging or older loved one. Many Latino family caregivers see caregiving responsibilities simply as something family members do for one another, and do not seek outside help. AARP and the Ad Council offer support with a new PSA campaign , encouraging Latino caregivers nationwide to access free Care Guides, self-care tips, planning resources, legal and financial guidance, and more.

AARP announced the launch of an effort to raise awareness of the daily challenges faced by many U.S. Latino family caregivers, anchored by the release of a Spanish-language documentary, titled Cada Paso del Camino ( Every Step of the Way). The film showcases the powerful and emotional stories of four Latino family caregivers, including popular Spanish-language television personality and outspoken caregiver, Marco Antonio Regil. Ultimately, the documentary aims to start a conversation among Latinos on how to best plan for and manage the family caregiver role.

It was the muffled cry of a tiny baby, Maria’s older sister, that changed the lives of the members of the Caballero family forever. The parents of Maria Caballero Rubio, having worked in the U.S. as part of the Bracero Program (guest worker program) during World War II, were on a bus heading back to Mexico when a U.S. official on the bus heard the baby cry and told the parents to get off the bus. “She’s a U.S. citizen,” they were told. “She needs to stay in the U.S.”
AARP applauds the withdrawal of the American Health Care Act. It would've been a boon for special interests, not a plan to improve care for Coloradans.
