Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Chang, Christine, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 73; 1527899
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop and write a grant proposal to secure funds on behalf of the Herald Community Center for a psycho-educational program for Chinese adults providing direct care for aging parents. The proposed program entitled Caring for You, Caring for Me will focus on Chinese caregivers residing in the San Gabriel Valley. Traditionally, families of Chinese descent encounter numerous barriers when attempting to access support services for their aging parents. These barriers can include financial strain on the family caregiver, language incompatibility with service providers, and a lack of cultural responsiveness to the needs of the Chinese older adult community. The overarching goal of the proposed program will be to decrease the burden and stress often experienced by Chinese adult children in a caregiving role. The actual submission or funding for this program was not required for the completion of this project.
