medical accompaniment and casework
We provide medical accompaniment and case management for low-income seniors who live in or frequent Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. Assistance is available for seniors to meet their basic needs in regards to housing, health, and income needs. Seniors can attend our drop-in hours or call us to access our services.
長者協商會 Seniors core
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.
Sticky Rice Collective
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.
