Caregiving may be cultural

I talked to a couple of medical doctors and they were saying a lot of times that they'll notice that their black patients will have extended family involved in care giving. And I talked to Hispanics, too. I think that's also something that happens and I wonder if it's more a function of income level. Income level but also probably culture, I guess I would have to say that too. Because of being less mobile if you're not financially able to move around so much, you develop roots and obligations of care.
