Residential/Respite Care Program
(License #380504099)

The residential program has the capacity to house up to 19 ambulatory seniors in either single or shared rooms. Residents are under 24-hour supervised, non-medical care. Staff provides assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) such as bathing, dressing, and taking medications.

The respite care program is temporary, short term, 24-hour supervised care for seniors. This service is available for families in need of backup care for an elderly member, especially during periods of caregiver burnout and stress or during family vacations which necessitate leaving a senior behind. The program is also an option for seniors who are being discharged from the hospital or who have recently been ill and need a temporary place to stay until they feel healthy enough to return home. Both programs feature the following services:

24 hours supervision in a secured building
Three nutritious Japanese style meals
Adult Social Day Care activities
Transportation and escorts to medical appointments
Monitoring of general health and development of appropriate care plans
Housekeeping services including laundry
Regular assessment to monitor care level
