Over the past several years, Macklind International has hosted special events for Chinese-speaking seniors. Beginning in late September, we will be hosting a recurring Chinese senior group in an effort to expand services and engage isolated populations. The program for last Monday’s group included a health insurance Q&A, hand yoga, chair exercises (and, apparently, some out-of-chair exercises), painting, a hot nutritious meal, Chinese music, and something called a “clip beans race” that got rather competitive. A good time was had by all, and our agency shuttle transported the seniors back home. Our Chinese-speaking Community Access Worker Cathy Xu and our volunteer Kaci helped facilitate the first regular group visit. The group will be returning every other Monday for activities, education, assistance, and fellowship with their peers.
