WHO WE SERVE

We support Vietnamese families throughout the Bay Area.

WHAT WE DO

We provide research and conduct studies of our Vietnamese community to better understand the struggles and obstacles that our people face. By presenting these studies, ICAN hopes to educate the community.

WHY IT MATTERS

Vietnamese dementia caretakers are often extremely distressed due to the intensity of their jobs. We hope to reduce this stress by implement “a culturally tailored, evidence-based skill-building program” (Van M. etl., 2019). We have found that a culturally adapted program can benefit Vietnamese caretakers greatly.
