Founded in 1961, Keiro improves the quality of life for older adults and their caregivers in the Japanese American community of Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties. Keiro provides a range of culturally-sensitive programs and resources, in both English and Japanese, to meet the evolving needs of our aging community. In everything we do, we advance our mission through a person-centered, innovative, and collaborative approach.
To enhance the quality of senior life in Our Community
What We Do
Keiro provides various programs and services to meet the evolving needs of our community’s older adults and their caregivers in a culturally-sensitive manner.
Our Leadership and Staff
Keiro is driven by its mission: to enhance the quality of senior life in Our Community. The organization is governed by a board of directors. Its volunteer members are representatives of the community and, along with the president and CEO of Keiro, are fiduciaries of the organization’s resources.
Keiro Today and In the Future
As the 21st century advanced, the needs of Our Community and the issues around aging populations continued to change.
Throughout the last 60 years, Keiro has always been committed to serving the community’s older adults and meeting their changing needs, from a Japanese hospital, nursing homes, a retirement home, and memory care to adult day care, preventative services, support for caregivers, community education, palliative care, community partnerships and more.
Although Keiro has moved forward from facility-based care, today, we continue to serve Japanese American and Japanese older adults and their caregivers. Throughout Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties, Keiro’s programs and partnerships are providing services that will continue to expand the capacity for older adults to age well and age wherever they call home.
