Meet Our Leadership and Staff
As the 21st century advanced, the needs of the Our Community and the issues around aging populations continued to change. The 2010 census showed 10,000 Americans were turning age 65 every day. 97% of Americans said they wanted to age at home. And the Japanese-American and Japanese-speaking community grew to 70,000 older adults and 57,000 caregivers spread throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties. After examining changing trends and after many years of thoughtful consideration, the Keiro board made the difficult decision to shift from facility-based care to programs, services, and resources that serve the community at-large wherever they decide to age.
Today, Keiro continues to serve Japanese American and Japanese older adults and their caregivers. Throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties, Keiro programs and partnerships are providing services and research that will continue to expand the capacity for older adults to age well and age wherever they call home.
