#CaretoChat wrap up: Discussing culturally appropriate care

The BCCPA’s Care to Chat titled Embracing Diversity: Providing Culturally Appropriate Care for British Columbia’s Aging Population on October 6 at the Terminal City Club was a great success.

Among over 100 attendees were representatives from the labour movement, BC MLAs Joan Isaac and Ralph Sultan, BCCPA board members, and care providers from across the province.

During the event moderated by CBC reporter and producer Belle Puri, panelists explored what culturally appropriate care truly means, and shared strategies on providing care to BC’s ethnically diverse senior population. They agreed that language, cuisine, religious and social customs need to be considered when caring for seniors, and person-centered care may be the best approach to meet their varying needs.
