Resident Services Update (Dec 23)


Resident Services Update (Dec 23)


As we take in the holiday season, we want to extend our heartfelt wishes to all of you. This time of year is not just about festive decorations and joyful gatherings; it’s a time to reflect on the essential moments we’ve shared and the connections that make life truly meaningful.  

Here are a few updates:  

  • Office and Administration: The office will be closed on Dec 25th and Dec 26th and returning to office hours from Dec 27th to Dec 29th. Off again on Jan 1st and return to the office on Jan 2nd to Jan 5th.  
  • Special Occasion Dinners: On Dec 25th, Christmas, residents will be treated to Turkey Dinner with trimmings, and on Jan 1st, New Year, Oscehi Ryori bentos. Residents must inform the food service team if they need help joining these meals.  
  • Food Committee Meeting: Jan 15th from 1p-2p with our Dietitian, Server Lead and Leadership group. Mark your calendars. The Poster will be put up in the new year.  

To families, as we reflected on our Resident Annual Holiday Party on Dec 5th, held at Nikkei Place Hayashi Hall, creating memories that will be cherished for years to come. Residents, staff,  and volunteers gather around the tables, sharing stories, enjoying each other’s company and having great food. Furthermore, we are very fortunate to have a lot of door prizes and gifts.  

Thank you to all who supported us. I want to take a moment to express gratitude to the organizing committee (Marlene Davidson, Yoko Watase, Tara Pagnattarro, Jay Haraga, Yukiko  Misaki, Yoshiko Uwasa, Helene Wong, and Rosa Patterson for recognizing their valuable contributions that become the event’s foundation. Also, we thank Yoshiko Nakano for her exceptional emcee duties, Cathy Makihara for the thoughtful speech, Nora MacAurther for all the beautiful holiday decorations, and Consul General of Japan Kohei Maruyama. If we missed  any acknowledgments or had any omissions, please let us know; we would be happy to thank you personally from our society.  

For all the cards, gift baskets, and goodies that we received from families, residents, and partners, we are incredibly grateful for their thinking of us. We appreciate the thoughtfulness and  kind words and express our deepest gratitude to you from our staff, and administration.  

May the upcoming year be filled with good health, joy, and prosperity for all of you. We wish you a pleasant and joyful holiday season filled with love, laughter, and warmth, surrounded by family and friends.  

Happy Holidays!
