Health and Wellness are critical aspects of maintaining social, physical and mental well-being. Through our Shore-AHEC Program with Rowan Osteopathic Medicine help families access the resources they need to lead stable and healthy lives. Via our Promotora program, a dedicated group of Community Health Workers and Case Managers serve the underserved populations by conducting direct client consults, group workshops, and community events to increase The Spanish Community Center's reach into the community and to tackle important health issues outside the center. Our Behavioral Health services aim to provide the community with evidence-based approaches to empowerment and social issues.
The below directory gives you an overview of some of your options for Spanish-speaking assisted living facilities in the U.S. It is not an exhaustive list of all of your options.
Many assisted living facilities have bilingual staff, culturally relevant dining programs and activities and other amenities geared toward Hispanic and Latinx American seniors. Staff and services may change over time, so make sure to verify all details before committing. Scheduling an in-person tour is a great way to familiarize yourself with each community’s unique atmosphere and offerings.

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.
