Experiences Make the Difference

We offer a variety of programs to Nimi Nikkei Home residents.
Limited virtual outreach programming is currently available.

Virtual Outreach Programs

Effective Dates: April 6 – June 25

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society suspended its Outreach Program in March 2020. We have now reopened a Virtual Outreach Program for all community residents using Zoom. Our programs serve seniors with a variety of needs and levels of independence.

All activity materials for the program will be provided, but you will need to prepare your own internet and communication equipment to use Zoom. Everyone is welcome to participate.
