Discussion post question mentioned in part 1:

Answer the following questions honestly (safe space).

  1. How does a person’s difference in age, culture, race, gender and living situation impact your comfort as a nurse in communicating with them?
  2. While growing up, how were OAs treated in your family, culture, community and in society (identify the year range).I have been blessed to live in one of the most diversified city like Chicago.  I come across patients of different ages, cultures, race, gender and those living in different situations.  As a nurse, I have never let these factors weigh in on how I care for these individuals.  Regardless of who it is and where they come from, I try to my best ability to care for my them the best I can without being biased.  If I have ever been biased, it’s probably against my own kind and it’s mostly because of their attitude towards me knowing that I am the same ethnic background as them.  I am of Indian ethnicity and “our kind” tend to be very difficult as patients.  But regardless of the request and difficulties they put forth, I try my best to remain unbiased.  Knowing that I am Indian, they become very inquisitive about my personal life and will ask many questions.  This is something I find uncomfortable being that I am somewhat of a private person about my personal life.  Depending on which part of India you are from, they also tend to be very candid, not realizing that their comments may be hurtful or even offensive.

    As I mentioned earlier, I am of Indian native.  I was born and raised in India until the age of 7 so I had the privilege of living with my grandparents.  Majority of the families follow an extended family pattern consisting of parents, children and grandparents.  Our culture puts great emphasis on values, especially those pertaining to respecting the old age.  The elderly or old age are seen as a source of knowledge, being able to give valuable advice and share greater wisdom.  Certain areas in India, respect is shown to elders by touching their feet when you greet them.  Respect for the elderly is something that is expected within families, as well as the community and in society.  I remember that I was not allowed to raise my voice or talk back to my grandparents or any other adults for that matters.  Adult children, particularly sons are expected to provide care for the aging adults at home.  This includes taking care of all their needs, even monetary.   Concepts of old age homes have only emerged in recent years as there is a rise in adult children going overseas and both husband and wife being in the workforce.
