The Chinese and English versions of Tips for Caregivers: Indoor Activities for Older Adults with Dementia.
The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly limited outdoor activities for most Americans including older adults with dementia and their caregivers. Considering the deficit of supportive materials for dementia caregivers printed in Chinese, Dr. Jinyu Liu has developed a guide to help Chinese caregivers design culturally meaningful indoor activities for their family members with dementia.
Please use the following links to access the Chinese and English versions of Tips for Caregivers: Indoor Activities for Older Adults with Dementia. The principles and examples of activities have been explained in plain language and cartoons. Two students at the Columbia School of Social Work, Yifan Lou (in the PhD program) and Rebecca Chen (a graduating MSW student), assisted Dr. Liu in this effort.
