Brite's Story

Morning light streams through the windows at Legacy House. Music is echoing across the main floor. In the gathering hall, thirty Adult Day Service participants are doing their morning exercises. In an adjacent room, Legacy House residents are engrossed in an arts and craft activity. The smell of lunch is in the air, as the kitchen staff prepare fresh lunches. Drivers are picking up boxed meals to be delivered to homebound seniors living in Seattle's Chinatown-International District, and the PACE medical team members are greeting their next patient for their medical check-up in the room down hall. In short, its bustling and the day has only begun.

"Its never boring at Legacy House," says Brite Chuang, ICHS Adult Day Center Supervisor. 

Brite graduated college from the East Coast with a degree in pathobiology and began her career working in a lab. She quickly realized how much she enjoyed interacting with people, providing direct care. 

She transitioned to work as a hospital admin and then served as a mental health counselor. But she wanted a team-environment - somewhere her values aligned with the organization. 

At ICHS, Brite has thrived. 

She joined ICHS in 2019, managing the daily operations including the Program Assistant team that runs day center programming and care for Adult Day Services and Program for All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) participants at Legacy House. Throughout the pandemic, they've had to adapt to ensure participants are safe and supported. 

"I really like my team. I love our patients. I feel like we are really dedicated to the mission of serving our patients." 

Brite feels proud seeing the seniors thrive in the program. "We help bridge the gap in healthcare," says Brite. As older people age they face health challenges. These compound for elderly Asian American immigrants with language and technological barriers. But at ICHS "we are willing to learn about our patients, their unique needs, and work with each of those patients."

At the end of the day, Brite reflects upon how supported she has felt in her role. Something that makes her job feel special.

“You'll never be alone. You're working in a team at all times. You always have support from teammates to talk to and problem solve.”
