As a first step in NAAAP’s partnership with AARP, we offered a webinar on Oct 16, 2020 on the subject of caregiving to members of the broader NAAAP community. Caregiving is providing physical or emotional support to a family member or friend in their home.
A panel of three speakers (Daphne Kwok, Vice President of Multicultural Leadership at AARP, Glen Masuda, Asian Pacific Family Center in L.A. and D.J. Ida, Exec. Director of AAPI Mental Health Association) addressed Asian American Pacific Islanders as caregivers.
- Working across generations: expectations, challenges and role reversal, siblings and their different ways of giving care
- Difficult conversations: with family, at work, with ourselves including end of life plans, advance directives, long-term care,
- Self-care for the Caregiver
- AARP resources – see below
