            Asian American (AAs) are often labeled as a “model minority” because of their perceived successful adaptation to American life perhaps due to their higher income and education levels than those of other minority groups ( Ho, 2001).  However, in some instances this is not the case as with J. C.  J. C.  is an 86 year old male who relies solely upon his daughter. Research shows that preventative care such as cancer screening and blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose level monitoring was not done regularly (Lee, 2010).  J.C. was having an annual physical because it was deemed necessary.  Per the scenario, his daughter has limited financial resources to care for her father, so it could be a situation where if there were new findings within the patient’s physical, he would not relay that information to his daughter as that he wouldn’t want to bring on more of a burden.  According to research, many do not have access to health care services due to the lack of financial resources, such as lack of health insurance and high out of pocket expense for medical appointments and prescription medication (Lee, 2010).

Spiritual and Lifestyle Factors

The language ability necessary to arrange a physician’s appointment, explain symptoms, and understand diagnosis and treatment is an essential skill for effective health care use (Lee, 2010).  In the Asian American culture they tend to rely on family groupings at medical appointments, not only because there tends to be a language barrier with the elderly people, but also, so that everyone can be informed and involved in the plan of care. Many Asian Americans are not comfortable speaking in English and expressed difficulty in communicating with physicians, which was particularly the case for many elders (Lee, 2010).
