Nikkei Concerns Programs
Programs include: Seattle Keiro, Nikkei Manor, Kokoro Kai, Nikkei Horizons, NC Transportation, NC Catering, and Home/Community-Based Services
Seattle Keiro serves those with rehab or long-term care needs, and they discover caring and committed staff who provide 5-star quality rehab and skilled nursing care. Residents’ well-being and enthusiasm for life are important, and they may participate in many cultural, social, and spiritual activities. We bring the outside world to the residents by way of international and local entertainers and guest chefs from around the community.
Home/Community-Based Services launched this year to help seniors thrive at home. The menu-based, nurse-driven service offers access to a variety of health & wellness activities. New services include home care, meal delivery, and minor home repair & upgrades. A Nurse Navigator and a Personal Concierge will add a personal touch and help guide participants to improved overall health & wellness.
NC Transportation, provides door-to-door service so residents, participants, and community members maximize their independence and health. Transportation for medical appointments, on Nikkei Horizons tours, or on resident outings is safe and reliable, thanks to the care and dedication of the Transportation Team. We currently contract with King County/Metro to support Legacy House Adult Day Health Program participants and plan to expanding our services. Our skilled drivers are thoughtful, safety-oriented, and friendly.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Our 6-month pilot program, NC Club – Aging in Community (with the support of a $150,000 AARP Foundation Cares Grant) involves 25 participants in the Seattle/Bellevue area who will enjoy the innovative services. Findings from the pilot will help drive the final business model and offerings.
Nikkei Concerns is rehabbing rehab at Seattle Keiro to provide an exceptional experience. Patients can look forward to a tranquil Rehab/Restorative space (including an Occupational Therapy Suite to practice real-life skills before going home), rooms dedicated to rehab residents, and a well-trained staff focused on wellness.
Nikkei Manor achieved the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Bronze Award, and Seattle Keiro received a top-level overall 5-star rating by CMS (Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services), for the fourth year in a row.
Nikkei Concerns’ 40th Anniversary
Nikkei Concerns has served our community, enhanced and promoted health & wellness, and transformed lives. We will celebrate our triumphs, encourage philanthropy, and share our future plans with a Gala this fall.
The evolving needs and high expectations of aging generations, a geographically and culturally diverse population, and the Affordable Care Act have created a health care environment that demands excellence and strategic thinking. We must develop innovative, relevant, and cost-effective services, aligning with future trends to best serve the community.
