Press Release - Cantonese-speaking team honored for Outstanding Program Achievement

December 2014 | Hospice by the Bay’s Cantonese-speaking team recently received the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association’s Outstanding Program Achievement Award at the annual CHAPCA conference in Las Vegas, on November 19.

Responding to studies showing that Asian Americans are 24 percent less likely to take advantage of hospice care, the bilingual caregiving team — which includes nurses, social workers, spiritual support counselors, home health aides and trained volunteers — removes the communication barriers that often prevent patients from getting the help that would improve their quality of life.
