Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society has joined forces with 4 organizations from the Chinese Canadians, South Asian Canadians and Korean Canadians* as well as physicians, health care providers and academia to call for action the creation of an innovative, and integrated culturally appropriate 200 bed residential care.  We have been meeting since 2016 and with the leadership of SUCCESS and the people at the table, there has been some positive reaction from our provincial government.

On Saturday, September 22, the group met with Premier John Horgan and on Friday, October 5, met with Minister of Health, Adrian Dix.

The model that is being discussed encompasses a full spectrum of care which would work closely with home health services, supportive living, and assisted living.

It is our hope that one day seniors can find person centered care in an environment that can meet a diverse population which fits the history, language, culture, food and the experiences of our senior community.

Our group is called Asian Canadian Seniors Health Network (ACSHN) and if you are interested in working on this endeavor please contact Cathy Makihara, Executive Director of NSHCHS 604-777-5000 or cmakihara@nikkeiplace.org
