When Tida Beattie's Thai immigrant parents died in 2019, she went from being a long-distance caregiver to an overwhelmed & grieving daughter. In her search for support, she found what so many do, a lack of culturally specific or informed resources. This experience motivated her to change this for others by creating spaces for immigrant families to receive support before and after a death. Tida is a Thai-American end-of-life doula, grief support facilitator, immigrant advocate, and co-founder of MESO, dedicated to supporting caregivers and those in grief with compassion and a cultural lens. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Growing up as a Thai-American and her family's experience of cultural bereavement.
  • How her parents' immigrant experience informed their approach to end-of-life.
  • What it was like to be a long-distance caregiver.
  • Tida's search for culturally relevant grief support.
  • The importance of acknowledging cultural bereavement.
  • The goal and mission of MESO.
  • Learning to hold both joy & grief.
