Chinese-American Sunshine House

Elderly Care Educational Workshops

Many elders struggle with depression and anxiety over a variety of obstacles which vary depending on their coping mechanisms and support system. They are a very vulnerable population as it is reported that 1 in 10 Americans aged 60 and over have experienced some form of elder abuse and much of this population’s mistreatment has gone unreported. Chinese elderly often do not reach out for help due to the language barrier, fear of causing trouble for their children and/or the fear of being left alone by their family members. 

CSH aims to educate seniors on different mental health problems and the various forms of abuse. We also inform and help to connect them with free NYC resources. This way, they can not only help themselves, but also their peers who may be struggling with these issues. 


Following are some of the topics that we can talk about:

  • “What is Elder Abuse and Where to Get Help?”
  • “How to Manage Elderly Anxiety?”
  • “How to Manage Elderly Insomnia?”
  • “What is Elderly Depression?”
  • “Why We Need to Prevent Suicides in the Elderly?”
  • “How to Increase Mental Health with Mindfulness Meditation”


Our community workshops are FREE. If your senior center/daycare center is interested in hosting our workshop at your location, you can contact us to make the request. Due to many requests and preparation time, please contact us at least two months in advance.
