Summary
Melvin Delgado accesses the status and assets of boomers of color, grounding an understanding of their financial, medical, and emotional needs within a historical, socioeconomic, cultural, and political context. Using specific data, he recommends tailored strategies for meeting the challenges of caring for a growing population. His research focuses on African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Native American older adults and addresses issues of financial security, employment stability, housing, and health care, which are often complicated by linguistic and cultural differences. Rather than treat baby boomers of color as a financial burden on society and its resources, Delgado recognizes their strengths and positive contributions to families and communities, resulting in an affirming and empowering approach to service
