For Chinese seniors, going to a simple hospital exam can be a stressful experience. Especially when they don’t know how to get to the hospital, how to find the right room, and can’t communicate with the nurses and doctors. We are working towards advancing language access to healthcare through advocacy and organizing.

Seniors Core is a team of advisors that represent our membership. They receive training, hold meetings, and provide feedback and direction for our programs and services. They play a vital role in ensuring that our work reflects the needs of the community.

Our team of youth volunteers have named themselves the Sticky Rice Collective, representing cultural connection and togetherness. The Collective aims to create wholesome intergenerational spaces where youth and seniors can build long lasting relationships and connections. 

Speak my language

Speak My Language is a storytelling media arts project for youth and Chinese seniors to share experiences of language and cultural barriers in accessing healthcare, explore individual and collective healing, and envision a culturally accessible healthcare system. Stay tuned for the launch of our radio docs in February 2020!

Chinatown Choose to move

Funded and supported by United Way of the Lower Mainland and UBC Hip and Health Centre, we provide coaching and opportunities for seniors with mobility challenges to exercise and improve their physical health. Seniors will participate in motivational meetings with their peers and have one-on-one meetings with an Activity Coach to track their progress.
