Reflections on 50 Years: Pet Visits
By Chiyo Niimi, Volunteer
Volunteers have always been the heart of Keiro, enhancing the quality of life for Keiro seniors.
Below are recollections of one of Keiro’s 800+ volunteers:
Our family started doing pet visits in the mid-90s with our
first golden retriever Jordan (named after the basketball great)
at Chino Valley Health Center. Jordan was never formally
trained but was extremely friendly and people oriented so we
started bringing him to Keiro Nursing Home. After Jordan
passed away, we bought another golden retriever – Kobe.

Kobe is a little more frisky and playful than Jordan, but he has
worked out really well since he seems to know the difference
between residents and staff. He is more playful with staff and
calmer with residents. Because he is tall, when he sits, he is at
the level where residents in wheelchairs can hug him, pet him,
shake his hands, and give high fives.

Once a month, we drive from Diamond Bar to Los Angeles
so Kobe can do his rounds at Keiro Nursing Home and Keiro
Intermediate Care Facility (KICF). After visiting the day room Keiro resident Fumie Otani gives Kobe a hug.
and certain residents who love Kobe, we drive to the
Los Angeles campus and eat lunch by the koi pond. After lunch, we walk over to KICF where he visits residents
on each floor.

Taking Kobe to Keiro is a joyful experience. Kobe loves cheering up the residents and making them smile. As he
walks through the hallways, wagging his tail, he also brightens the day for the many dedicated staff. It’s a win-win
for all of us!

 Inaugural Member s Named to
 New Senior Advisor y Council
 This past spring, Keiro
 created an exciting new
 element in its leadership
 structure, the Keiro
 Senior Advisory Council.
    “The Senior Advisory
 Council was developed
 to recognize the            George Aratani.  Donald Kaneoka. Takashi Makinodan. James Mitsumori. Thomas Shigekuni.
 contributions of a
 number of dedicated volunteer Board members who have devoted themselves over much of their lifetimes to
 the ongoing success of the Keiro organization,” said Keiro’s President and CEO Shawn Miyake. “We wanted a
 way to show our appreciation to Board members who have retired from service on our three boards, yet who still
 wanted to be involved with the organization.”
    The Senior Advisory Council members possess unique perspectives and insights into the operation of the
 Keiro organization, its mission, and the community it serves. The Council is an invaluable asset necessary for
 Keiro to continue to be the vibrant and successful organization that it has become.
    Our first member of the Council was Keiro founder George Aratani who will now be joined by fellow founder
 James Mitsumori and long time volunteers Donald Kaneoka, Takashi Makinodan, and Thomas Shigekuni.
   “All of these individuals have made significant contributions to the development of Keiro during critical times
 in Keiro’s history,” Miyake said. “We want to be able to communicate with the Council members on a regular
 basis to get their feedback and stay in touch.”
    The Council will be listed along with the other Boards of the Keiro organization located at the back of the
 Umbrella of Care publication.

                                                             have been with my South Bay Keiro family and friends.

Crafty Seasons of Love
Girl Scout Completes Gold Award at South Bay Keiro Nursing Home
For her Girl Scout Gold Award, Kellyn Makiyama of Girl Scout Troop
12135 led several craft activity sessions for the residents at South Bay
Keiro Nursing Home and put together 300 seasonal craft kits for
future use.

“It is important to keep senior residents involved in life activities, and
taking the time to make crafts with them can only add to their
enjoyment of life,” says Kellyn, noting that crafts help develop creativity
and sensory stimulation. “I want to share my love for crafts with the
senior generation and let them know that they are not forgotten.”

Healthy Aging Summit Highlights
Wellness as Key to Global Aging
International, National, and Local Experts Share Best Practices and Policy Solutions
As the world’s population ages at an unprecedented rate, the need for a sustainable health and long-term care
system for older adults increases. On April 12, government leaders, population experts, gerontologists, and more
gathered at the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center at USC for a half-day Healthy Aging Summit.
Keiro Senior HealthCare presented this event in celebration of its 50th anniversary this year and in partnership
with the USC Davis School of Gerontology, with the support of the Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles.
Sponsors included AARP and The Aratani Foundation.

Healthy Aging Summit presentations are available on our website at www.keiro.org/healthy-aging-summit-2011.


      “The summit illustrates our partnership with Keiro… a collaboration with colleagues to
                       address the challenges and opportunities of aging.”

            approach is to embrace it and make the aging process as healthy as possible.”

Keiro Living: Improving Emotional Wellness
In all the facilities throughout Keiro’s continuum of care, residents may choose to participate in
a variety of stimulating activities designed to accommodate a range of interests and preferences.
These programs help promote healthy “genki living” for our residents and are made possible only
through the generous contributions of donors and volunteers. In this issue, we focus on
emotional well being, one of the eight dimensions of wellness.




KINDNESS OF STRANGERS
One-on-One Visits Encourage Keiro Nursing Home Residents
When Mayumi Shiira’s mother was a resident at Keiro Nursing Home, she decided that in the future, she would
come back as a volunteer and talk to residents. “I just felt there was a need for this,” said Mayumi, a volunteer for
five years. When she heard that resident Alice Kawasaki, pictured with a red vest, was feeling under the weather
and had a sweet tooth for donuts, she brought some to cheer her up. Volunteer Doug Shishima, who used to
come and volunteer as a boy scout, accompanied her. Sitting in the second floor day room, Mayumi, Doug, and
Alice talked about everything from modern day food trucks to girls’ toys from when Alice was a little girl. Another
resident, Shizue Kuratomi, joined them and met Alice for the first time. Making new friends and talking with
volunteers is a great way for residents to keep their emotions and spirits high.




FLOWER FESTIVAL
Residents at South Bay Keiro Nursing Home Celebrate Hanamatsuri
Hanamatsuri, literally translated as “flower festival,” is a celebration of Buddha’s birth. Residents at South Bay
Keiro Nursing Home celebrated this occasion with members of the Los Angeles Buddhist Church Federation.
“I’m very privileged to have so many Buddhist priests with us,” said resident Yumie Takahashi, pictured on the
left. For the ceremony, residents poured ama-cha, a sweet hydrangea leaf tea, on a small statue. “I’m so happy to
live here because I can celebrate hanamatsuri,” said resident Ikuko Tominaga, in the right photo, on the left. Being
able to partake in familiar religious ceremonies without leaving Keiro gives residents peace-of-mind and keeps
them emotionally happy and healthy.

       “If a resident’s emotional health is suffering, so will their physical health. Regularly
 scheduled activities and events improve their emotional well-being by helping residents interact
    with others and have better relationships, learn new things, or just have fun and laugh. ”
                        — Yoshiko Kobayashi, activity manager at Keiro Nursing Home




BOOK OF LOVE
Residents at Keiro Intermediate Care Facility Write Cards and Make Cranes
for the People of Japan
In response to the tragedy in Japan that left many residents disheartened, the staff and volunteers at Keiro
Intermediate Care Facility decided to send a scrapbook filled with residents’ thoughts and prayers. “Dear
surviors of the tsunami, how devastating,” wrote resident Toshi Miyamoto. “You have my deepest sympathies.”
To accompany the words of hope from the residents, youth volunteers came to help resident Mitsuko Hamano
make senbazuru, 1,000 cranes, from beautiful origami paper. According to legend, if you make a thousand cranes,
a wish such as long life or in this case fast recovery from a tragic event, will be granted. Having this opportunity to
share their feelings helped cheer the residents as they will also bring hope to the people of Japan.




GOING WITH THE FLOW
Keiro Retirement Home Residents Relax with Tai Chi
Tai chi, which originated in China as a martial art, is a practice to improve health and well-being. A certified yoga
teacher and a Keiro volunteer, Chima comes every week to teach tai chi to the residents. “Tai chi is especially good
for residents because it helps balance their body, which is very important,” said Chima. “Tai chi also allows the
body to relax through deep breathing techniques.” Relaxing the body can help residents be calm and relieve their
physical and mental stress. “Considered an energy exercise, the more you focus, the more positive energy the
residents will feel,” said Chima.

These programs are possible only through the generous contributions of donors and volunteers. If you would like
to support Keiro’s activities through charitable giving, please contact Resource Development at (323) 980-7513
or donations@keiro.org. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kimberly Hayashi at (323) 980-2352 or

3 Cases: Planning Rewards and Planning Wrecks
See how these three cases validate the need for proper estate planning.

Case Study #1: Proper Planning

As they neared retirement, Steve and Kim met with their attorney to draft their wills. The couple talked about
their goals, chose executors and named several beneficiaries, including their favorite charities. A few weeks later,
the lawyer drafted copies of their wills. After reviewing the documents, they made a final appointment to sign the
wills. It can be that simple.

Case Study #2: Use a Pro, Not a Pencil

Diane created her will in April 1992. A year later, she used a pencil to cross out portions of the original
document. She changed a provision that originally stated her house should be sold and the proceeds divided
among five distant relatives. She decided, instead, to leave her home and its contents to a charitable organization.
After her death, relatives claimed that the will was improperly altered. Two courts agreed. Thus, the original will
held and the charity she cared about received nothing.

Case Study #3: The Price of Procrastination

Tim was an excellent physician, but he failed to give his personal affairs the same careful consideration he
showered on his patients. At his death, taxes devoured nearly half of his estate because he neglected to take
simple steps to eliminate unnecessary taxes. In the absence of a will, state law dictated how to divide the
remainder of his estate.

  “Everything we do, as it was from Day One, is still
 delivered from the heart, with sincere gratitude and
         appreciation for our “living treasures.”
- Soji Kashiwagi, executive producer of Grateful Crane Ensemble




                                                                                                       Offering Peace-of-Mind to Our Community
Ten years ago, Scott Nagatani, Soji Kashiwagi, Keiko Kawashima, and a
group of actors decided to perform Japanese songs at Keiro Retirement
Home as a way to give back to our community’s elders. With
encouragement and support from others, they decided to take their show




                                                                                                       Through a Tradition of Caring
“on the road,” with a mission of saying “thank you” to the Issei and Nisei




                                                                                                       Los Angeles, CA 90033-3812
who paved the way for them to experience a better life in America.




                                                                                                       325 South Boyle Avenue
Grateful Crane has performed for Keiro at concert hall performances,
monthly birthday parties, volunteer appreciation lunches, KICF holiday
luncheons, Keiro No Hi concerts, and the South Bay Keiro Bazaar. They
will also perform at Keiro’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Luncheon on
October 15.

                                               “After traveling up and down
                                              the state, across the country and
                                              around the world, we still
                                              remember Keiro, and our folks
                                              who inspired our message and our
                                              mission,” says Soji Kashiwagi.
