Working Towards Equity for Older Adults – January CARE Connections

How can care and service providers honor the cultural practices of older adults across racial and ethnic communities?

Read how a campus-community partnership is revising local case management standards with input from Hmong, African American, and Latinx leaders, in the January issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“The communities we talked to stressed the importance of interdependence,” says Schroepfer. “In some cultures, it’s the individual and their family who make decisions about goals. It’s important to be not just person centered, but family centered, even community centered.” 

This month’s CARE Connections also includes COVID-19 resources; CARE U conferences for CNAs and direct care staff; a profile of CARE Affiliate Wan-chin Kuo, RN, PhD; and news and events related to older adult health and well-being.
