Empowering Asian elders to cope better with disability and long-term illnes
Empowering Asian elders to cope better with disability and long-term illnes - Project
This project will train older people from Asian communities as volunteers to share their experiences, befriend others and signpost them to appropriate services. The project will provide advocacy support to help older people excluded from dialogue about their care and lifestyle options; for example, when they are in hospital or nursing homes. Working closely with social care practitioners, this project also aims to share and embed good practice to deliver culturally and linguistically appropriate services.
