Frequently asked questions

Still Have Questions?

Please call 604.777.5000 for assistance.

Does assisted living result in a loss of independence?

The philosophy of assisted living is to promote resident self-direction and participation in decision that emphasizes choice, dignity, individuality and independence. Assisted living offers meals, basic housekeeping, social opportunities and personal care for its residents. In keeping with this philosophy, Nimi Nikkei Home strives to provide an environment where residents are able to do a much as possible for themselves and take greater control over their daily activities.

Is this an intermediate care facility?

Nimi Nikkei Home is not an intermediate care facility or an acute care facility and does not provide the medical, emergency or 24 hour Registered Nursing care found in hospitals.

Who are the staff who will be looking after the Nimi Nikkei Home residents?

There is a Resident Services Manager who will oversee the care given by Team Leaders and Resident Assistants. These Team Leaders and Resident Assistants are people who are qualified to care for seniors. The Continuing Care Case Manager from Fraser Health Authority will be working with the resident and the Nikkei Home staff team in assessing your personal support needs and insuring that your personal support needs are being met.

In addition, there is support staff who work in the Administration Office, Recreation Office, Housekeeping and Maintenance Office and Food Services.
