Aging and Migration: the Value of Familism for Spanish Speakers

Aging and Migration: the Value of Familism for Spanish Speakers


This study investigates the caregiving expectations of a group of nineteen older Spanish speakers living in Australia from the perspective of familism. Speakers participated in audio-recorded interviews about their caregiving expectations late in life and four key themes were identified: (1) tension between value of familism and the self-reliance approach encouraged in Australian society; (2) fear of burdening their "westernized" children, which resulted in shifted care expectations; (3) fear of ending up in an aged care facility; and (4) the importance of religion in coping with uncertainty about future care arrangements.
