Impact of a new generation Jake, Ray, and Matt are key professionals in the present and future of Keiro Northwest. To nurture and develop their respective areas, they all rely on teamwork yet draw upon their individual skills and experiences. Often working with people who are one or two generations older, shared beliefs, values, and objectives are vital to build relationships and accomplish goals. For them, challenges are opportunities, and they use every tool available to pursue success. As they incorporate technology into their programs, demonstration and

Dear Friends, Family, and Loved Ones! I hope you are all enjoying the fabulous summer we have been blessed with. The Board of Directors recently welcomed the newest board member, Katie Lai, to her first board meeting. She brings extensive health care and medical experience with lots of passion to our team. She is a breath of fresh air, with her younger perspective along with her many attributes! As a Board, we discussed the next generation’s expectations. They want and need immediate response to questions regarding preventative health care, home care services, and trends in the industry. We understand and are ready to service the needs of the next generation. Keiro Northwest is stepping up and bringing new leaders to your team of professional executives. It is time for the next generation of talent to take us to the next level of service. This is an exciting time for the community and Keiro Northwest. As we think about our future and caring for our family members — let me assure you — Keiro Northwest continues to serve the community each and every day with compassion and the best of care! Thank you for your continued support!

Dear Friends,

NIKKEI MANOR Assisted Living Community 206.726.6460

The contributions and innovation of our young leaders at Keiro Northwest inspire me. I remember how challenging it was as a go-getting twenty-something to turn my own ideas into action. The Keiro Northwest Family is fortunate because our new generation of employees embrace technological advances and deliver the personal touch that makes Keiro so special. Thanks to those featured in this issue as well as the many

This summer has kept us in touch with the community. Our first Caregiver Resource Day offered hardworking golfers of all ages. And our annual Summer Festival, the first bon odori of the season, drew dancers and participants from near and far. The calendar is full of more opportunities to learn, stay active, and rejoice. Continue your lifelong education with Nikkei Horizon’s new school year, which starts in September. Expand your concept of healthy living at the 6th annual Living Well Health Fair on October 22. And save the date, Friday, February 9, 2018, for our 2nd annual Lunar New Year Celebration. It promises to be even better than this year’s amazing event. I regretfully bid a fond farewell to Tina Masuda Draughon, Chief Financial Officer. For the last four years, she has been an indispensable leader on Keiro’s executive team. I will miss her and wish her all the best.

Your CEO,

Jeffrey

and adaptability. The superficial and artificial no longer matter. Things like possessions, ego, and grudges have no significance in his life. Family and friends – true friends who continue to stand by him, do matter. Still, Cyrus has ups and downs. He feels as though he’s starting over, with an emptiness inside. Life is precious, however, and he refuses to waste it. Hope sustains and motivates him. So does playing Pokémon GO in the park with friends and hanging out together. Cyrus loves Keiro and the staff. He appreciates the peace at Keiro and feels a connection to the people. They’re easy to talk to and understand the challenges he faces. What’s next? Well, he’s going home in September, and the staff at Keiro will definitely miss him. He wants to write a book about his experience, and he wants to travel. He wants to pursue his medical studies, with certification in neurosurgery, which means that not only will he help others heal, he’ll share his technical expertise and overall wisdom with a new generation of young surgeons. According to Cyrus, “knowledge isn’t something you can be selfish with.”

The power of

[play]

Keiro Activities staff members are lucky; their job is to play with the residents. But it’s more than fun and games. Theirs is a physical, mental, and emotional career choice that is born out of love and a deep wish to bring meaning to the residents’ lives. The staff put “active” in activities. They move tables and chairs, set up and run audio/ visual equipment, troubleshoot mechanical problems, and resolve issues on the fly. They handle a lot of prep to ensure successful events. Their efforts tend to the residents’ creative, competitive, social, and spiritual needs. Through play, the Activities team contributes to the mental and emotional wellness of every resident.

They also engage residents in one-on-one interactions, introduce technology — like iPads and web surfing, and add sparkle and laughter to traditional, cultural, and whimsical holidays. Their varied language skills bring comfort, familiarity, and enhanced communication that empowers our multi-cultural residents to feel included and part of the Keiro Northwest Family.

Knowledgeable speakers offered tips and advice on wellness (for both caregivers and their loved ones), dementia, planning, and options.

Dancers and taiko artists from around the Puget Sound area converged in a blur of color, grace, and sound at Keiro’s eagerly-awaited Summer Festival.
