Dealing With End-of-Life Issues in the Chinese American Community
Thank You to Our Featured Guest: The Chinese American Coalition for Compassionate Care (CACCC)
Thank You to Our Hosts: Donna Schempp and Andrea Moss
About the Conversation:
Speakers from the Chinese American Coalition for Compassionate Care discussed two of their programs: Mindfulness for Stress Reduction of Caregivers in the Chinese Community and “Heart to Heart,” cards designed to help people talk about difficult subjects around the end-of-life and care needs, both within families and within the community. Both programs are designed to be culturally appropriate and led by English- and Chinese-speaking facilitators.
