Supporting our loved ones as they age can be both rewarding and daunting, but may come with many questions. The Vancouver Division of Family Practice and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. have partnered to host a much needed conversation about aging in Vancouver with a panel of Vancouver-based family doctors. Anyone caring, or expecting to care, for their elders are invited to attend to be part of this important discussion, which will be held in Mandarin. In this panel discussion moderated by Dr. Janet Kushner Kow (Vice-Chair of S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Board of Directors), physicians Dr. Timothy Hsia, Dr. Karen Fang, and Dr. Michelle Lin will give their insights into questions and concerns many family members have on:

  1. What are the warning signs to look out for when your loved one may require residential care and how one can best prepare for it.
  2. What early health and community supports are available to help family members care for my aging relative for as long as possible.
  3. What does moving into a Residential Care Facility look like.

 

The event will end with a Question and Answer period with the audience. After the event, there will be time to connect with the panelists as well as a number of representatives from important health and community programs and services that you will want to know about.

当深爱的家人年岁渐增,如何支持他们,这让我们感觉喜忧参半,随之也会有各种问题接踵而至。

家庭医生组织温哥华分部 (The Vancouver Division of Family Practice) 携手中侨互助会 (S.U.C.C.E.S.S.),举办一次专题研讨会,与在温哥华执业的家庭医生共同探讨大众所关心的温哥华老年人护理问题。主办方诚邀家中正有或是将有老年人需要护理的人士出席,参与这一重要的讨论。研讨会将以国语进行。

本次小组讨论会将由古凤仪医生(中侨互助会理事会副主席)主持,夏明德、方莹颖和林咏涵三位医生将针对许多家庭成员所关心的问题,提供专业意见:

  1. 需要注意哪些警示讯号,说明您的至爱家人可能需要入住养老院,以及如何能够做好最充分的准备。
  2. 有哪些早期健康与社区支持,可以帮助家庭成员尽可能长时间地护理年迈亲人。
  3. 入住养老院会得到怎样的服务。

活动最后设有与观众问答的环节。活动结束后,您会有时间与参与小组讨论的医生以及来自重要保健、社区项目和服务机构的代表进行沟通,帮助您了解这些项目与服务。
