This article proposes a conceptual model for the design and implementation of effective social services for older Latino immigrants in the United States. Previous research has shown that conditions in the country of origin are important determinants of service take up and outcomes, and the case of older Puerto Rican immigrants is used to demonstrate how the model can be used to design services for other older Latino adults. Although Latino populations in the US are growing fast and they will soon be the largest minority, their different ethnicities, histories and cultures will affect social services delivery, and the dynamic model proposed shows how these can be used to develop more effective programs and services for older adults.
