Asian Health Services is a community health center largely serving low-income, limited English speaking Asian immigrant communities.
Starting Dec 3, 2020, we will begin holding virtual group medical visits for seniors with chronic pain and offer them every 1st & 3rd Thurs morning of the month. Virtual health visits, physical activities, mindfulness activities and healthy eating activities are incorporated into the session.
We're seeking 1-2 Cantonese-speakers to assist a medical and behavioral health provider with this group. Volunteers will meet by phone with the senior citizen patients before the group session to assist them in downloading the zoom app and practice logging into a zoom meeting.
Meet by phone with Cantonese-speaking senior citizens ahead of the group visit to download the zoom app and practice zoom calls. Time Estimate: 6-10 hrs for the initial set-ups. 2-3 hrs for subsequent sessions.
Be available during the 1st & 3rd Thurs from 8:30 - noon to assist with the session. Time Estimate: 3.5 hrs
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
