PEOPLE OF MEXICAN AND PUERTO RICAN HERITAGE 2People of Mexican and Puerto Rican HeritageMexican Case StudyThe three social-economic factors that influence the health of the Gaborra family include the level of education among the caregivers in the family and the level of income for the family. Another factor that will influence health in that family is occupation. The health teaching interventions that will be used by the health care provider will involve the use of an outreach program that will be convenient for her. Mrs Olga can also be educated on the risks of anemia and inform her of the available resources to management anemia available. The Gaborra family can be assisted to improve communication in English by ensuringthat they speak more with their children after school. The family can also involve in social events in the community where they interact with different people hence speak a common language. One goal is to ensure that the family understands the risks of using herbal medications. Another goal is to ensure that the family has understood the importance of taking healthy meals to avoid emergency room visits and improve their immunity. Lastly, the family will demonstrate good health-seeking behavior (Hirai et al., 2015)Olga should learn that infants loss fluids more during diarrhea than adults and should, therefore, be replaced fast and adequately. She should also be able to notice signs of dehydration in infants such as dry lips and less voiding hence lesser diaper changes. Olga should also know that infants feeding is part of fluid replacement such as breastfeeding. The family should be advised to avoid combining hospital medicines and herbal solutions when treating various diseases if they want to use their traditional mode of treatment. Since the Mexican culture mainly unloved food, they can be taught how to balance the diets so that they get outmost nutritious content. Also, even if the mother is not allowed to shower postnatal, she should maintain a high level of hygiene to prevent infections.
