Our Goal

The goal of “KIMCHI” is to help increase the knowledge of Korean American caregivers about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) prevention and advanced care planning to better care for themselves and their loved ones. 

 

 

 

Why is KIMCHI important?

Accurate, updated, and Korean language information about ADRD (Alzheimer's disease and related dementias) caregiving and advanced directives for Korean Americans can be difficult to find. KIMCHI will share this information for Korean American caregivers and family members so they can feel comfortable using the new research evidence to better care for themselves and their loved ones.
