Caregiving “is not something you think about – it just happens,” said Richard Lui, an MSNBC/NBC anchor. He flies weekly from New York to San Francisco to take care of his father, Stephen Lui, 83, who has dementia.
The care giving stories of the Luis and two other Chinese American families are featured in the new AARP short documentary “Caregiving: The Circle of Love,” according to a story in the latest edition of AARP magazine.
“The film is meant to serve as a catalyst to start caregiving conversations in our communities,” said Daphne Kwok, AARP vice president for multicultural markets.
AARP has also produced “Caregiving Dahil Mahal Kita (Because I Love You), offering Pilipino Americans’ family caregiving stories, and “Stepping Up: Stories of Jazz and Caregiving,” featuring African American jazz artists who are caregivers.
