Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) Proposal

After completion of the 2012 and 2013 PAMF Endowment Fund projects, the Chinese American Coalition for Compassionate Care (CACCC) has been awarded its third PAMF grant to provide education outreach about Advance Heath Care Directive (AHCD), Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) and End of Life Care to Chinese Americans residing in Alameda, Oakland and San Mateo counties for the year of 2014. The CACCC will conduct community outreach, particularly to Chinese seniors, on the advantages of completing an AHCD and the POLST form. CACCC seminars will explain what these forms do and how to complete them. CACCC volunteers will help participants actually complete their AHCD at the seminars using the Chinese translation of the forms as a tool for understanding the implications of each section of the AHCD and the POLST form. New this year, CACCC outreach will include Heart to Heart Cafés, where participants will gain a better understanding of end of life issues, such as the benefits of hospice and palliative care.

The Memory Book will contain chapters for "telling your story", for "messages to your loved ones", a place for saying what dying means to you, a place for photographs, a place for instructions on what to do after you die ... and much more.
