Diversity Wellness & Outreach Programs

Socialize, participate, & explore

Group of multi-ethnicity older adults

CHATS Diverse Older Adults Outreach Programs promote wellbeing and integration activities for groups of older adults from the following cultural/linguistic groups: Iranian, Russian, Chinese (Cantonese), Italian, South Asian, and Tamil.  

CHATS Diverse Older Adults Outreach Programs utilize a holistic approach to wellness, providing clients with opportunities for social interaction, celebration of cultural events, and development of resource networks including the provision of information on health, exercise, and wellbeing. 

Programs may provide a culturally appropriate snack or meal. Transportation is provided where available. 

“My son and his wife both work full-time, so I was alone by myself most of the time. Because of the language barrier, I was unable to make new friends. And because of my isolation, I became depressed and had to obtain medication from my doctor to cope. Then, a year-and-a-half ago, I saw an ad for the Diversity Outreach Program for Iranian seniors in the paper, and decided to join. After a few months of participation, I had grown much happier. I even decided to stop taking my medication because I no longer felt depressed. I have made many friends and now I often go out to socialize, talk on the phone and lead an active, healthy life.”
