Cultural Issues - Their Impact on the He...alth and Care of the Ageing Person
This chapter examines the issues of culture as they relate to aged care in the community. Culture can be contrasted with nature. We often assume that it is natural, or part of nature, to behave in spe...cific ways. We may even argue that we are born to hold specific kinds of values and to behave in specific ways. A whole range of possibilities, tendencies, opportunities and constraints are almost certainly built into our genetic code and hence are part of our birthright. But in fact our specific values and behaviors are learned, commencing virtually from the day we are born. Despite the current debate about how far gender differences are innate, there is indisputable evidence that these and many other personal differences are in fact learned and hence cultural in nature.
