Why is it convenient for a nursing home in Mexico?

“Mexico’s growing nursing home market targets U.S. retirees. With 75 million baby boomers heading toward retirement and the cost of private nursing care in the U.S. outstripping already-hammered retirement funds, Mexican developers say they have an irresistible product in the works: active senior and nursing home in a warm climate full of friendly people for as little as $1,100 a month.Since most Mexicans take care of their parents often until death, there is not much of a nursing home industry at all, except for those run by charities or the government”

One of the locations American retirees find attractive is on Lake Chapala near Guadalajara where several small nursing home have sprung up, often operated by locals, to serve Americans as they get older and can no longer take care of themselves.
