Abstract

According to the last census the Latino population is the fastest growing ethnic population in the Massachusetts, with 6.8% of Hispanics in the Commonwealth residing in Worcester County. With the establishment of the population in the United States it is necessary to ensure that they are provided with equal services in healthcare regardless of their cultural background, language proficiency, education, insurance or income. This study focuses on the elderly population of Worcester, Massachusetts and their use and access of the healthcare system.
