NAPCA Healthy Aging helps AAPI seniors live longer and healthier by providing health promotion programs and in-language health education materials.
NAPCA worked with community organizations to implement the evidence-based Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) for AAPI elders. NAPCA also developed in-language resources for implementing and evaluating the program. For more information about the NAPCA’s CDSMP efforts, click here.
Medicare Resources for AAPI Elders
NAPCA developed and translated two Medicare handbooks into Chinese, Khmer (Cambodian), Korean, Samoan, and Vietnamese. The first booklet, What is Medicare?, gives a general overview of Medicare, including what healthcare services it covers, who qualifies, and how to sign up for Medicare. The second booklet, Get Help Paying for Your Prescription Drug and Healthcare Costs, explains different programs available to help seniors pay for their healthcare costs.

NAPCA also developed the Medicare Screening Tool. People can use this multilingual tool to determine their eligibility for Medicare and related cost savings programs. To go to the screening tool, click here.
