Abstract

Understanding Mexican American (MA) elders' use of home health care services (HHCS) and elders' reactions to interventions designed to increase HHCS use is vital to address disparities (e.g., MA elders use HHCS less yet have more disabilities with earlier onset than other groups). Dialog notes from a telenovela intervention and interviews with two additional elder-caregiver dyads were content analyzed and revealed ways to improve the telenovela, fitting with Narrative Theory. Further contributions by a community advisory council resulted in a revised script and illustrated how research participants and community members can shape interventions to achieve equity in vulnerable populations' healthcare utilization.
