Fifteen years ago, Yuko Liew joined the staff at Nimi Nikkei Home starting as a receptionist, and then working as Resident Assistant, and today, leaving us as the long time Activity and Volunteer Coordinator. For the residents and the volunteers, she symbolizes the fun, enjoyment, variety of programs and experiences at Nimi Nikkei Home. She has added laughter and liveliness with care and commitment. Today, she has grown the social activities to over 24 a week. She brought to us so much of Japanese culture that we are so lucky to have. As part of a care team, she has provided valuable input. With her energy and constantly encouraging words to the volunteers, we will all miss her.
While Yuko left us in January 2020, Yoko Watase, has taken on the new position of Assisted Living and Community Outreach Leader. Yoko has been with the Society for close to 10 years and helped create some of outreach activities that Nikkei Seniors Society offers. We look forward to working with Yoko in her new capacity.
Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society wish Yuko all the best wherever her future leads her.
