our values

respect • trust • kimochi • quality of life • family

Dear Nikkei Concerns Family, 2013 has proven to be another wonderful and meaningful year for your Nikkei Concerns (NC)! A primary focus of the Board and staff was to prepare for major changes due to health care reform and the evolution of our community. A “Blue Ribbon Committee” shared their hearts and expertise over the course of a year to study health care reform, innovative/“best practices” service strategies and demographic trends of the community while conducting an elaborate “needs assessment survey” where over 1,000 individuals shared their “needs and wants.” Their final report helped us truly gain clarity and direction, and the Board and staff have now embarked on an elaborate Strategic Planning process. No question, major challenges lie ahead… but also exciting opportunities! We would also like to provide 2013 highlights of your Nikkei Concerns… • Celebrated Kokoro Kai’s 35th and Nikkei Manor’s 15th Anniversary of service! • Nikkei Horizons offers Saturday classes/workshops at the Bellevue Children’s Academy! • Seattle Keiro continues to be a “5 Star” nursing home! • Health and wellness abounds… including our “Living Well” Health Fair with the Seattle JACL! • Initiated planning to develop an array of home and community based services, and • As you will see in the “financial” section of this Annual Report, we continue to make steady progress in our overall fiscal health. How does all of this (and much more) happen? It is through a volunteer force of over 1,000, sharing close to 24,000 hours of their time; the thousands of individuals/organizations who generously donate their precious resources; the support and caring of dozens of current and past family members; the 280 incredible staff who are committed to providing the highest quality of care and service; and the dedicated leadership of the Board of Directors... all with the common bond of “making every day the best day for our residents, participants, staff, and community.” With Gratitude,

Ted Tomita

President, Board of Directors

Family was always important to Dad, and he felt at home at Kokoro Kai, Nikkei Manor, and Seattle Keiro. The volunteers and staff were so kind and thoughtful, and they became part of the family. We felt like we belonged to the Nikkei Concerns Family whenever we visited, and we will always be grateful for the love and care that Dad received. — Family of Kenji Yamada
