Renovation and New Program Update

Nimi Nikkei Home is fully into its construction.  Nimi Nikkei Home is adapting 5 of its 59 units for ‘enhanced’ living  for seniors who require more a little more extra help with mobilizing and having the living and sleeping in the same area.  These adaptive changes could mean living longer at assisted living.   A larger activity centre is also being created.  The opening for both these areas will be early 2018 (Feb/March).

Over summer, the suites have been all stripped and the cupboards and appliances put away, all the materials for the construction have been purchased and outside there is a new entrance for the activity centre.

In September, new support beams will be added and with that the walls can come down and re-positioned for the new enhanced units and opened up for the activity centre.

In December, the dry wall was going up.  We have our inspiration board and are looking forward to seeing the whole project come to life.

What you will see in the new activity centre:

Whole Health Mind – an education series for families experiencing the challenges of an aging parent or senior.  Covering topics such as frailty, how to observe, doing things together, and implementing plans; and Whole Health Body – the mission is to offer a program addressing the body and mind through exercise.  We are still planning and will write updates as a schedule crystallizes.
