Keiro continues to advance its mission in innovative ways through numerous collaborations with community organizations that share similar visions and already do great work to serve the older adults in our community. We find great value in collaborating to maximize our impact. Keiro deeply appreciates all of its partners – national senior services and health care organizations; universities and schools; veterans’ associations; religious institutions; and local community organizations – that work with us to transform the wellbeing of individuals, families, and our community.
In August of 2017, Keiro and Providence announced a partnership to provide palliative care to Japanese American and Japanese older adults with serious illnesses.
In August of 2017, Keiro and Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC) announced a partnership initiative to expand and enhance LTSC’s existing bilingual services, while integrating Keiro’s experience, knowledge, and resources.
Keiro appreciates and celebrates the many organizations and groups, both new and old, that support and build community. Keiro facilitates discussions between community leaders in our Nikkei Senior Network to discuss challenges faced by older adults and caregivers. To receive more information about these meetings, please email [email protected].
As part of strengthening community networks and collaboration, Keiro has convened leaders from our community partners since 2006 to share ideas and best practices to better serve older adults across Southern California. The shared knowledge strengthens community bonds to empower organization leaders to tackle various challenges relating to aging in our community, ranging from transportation, social connections, program planning, and more.
In June of 2022, Keiro and the East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center (ESGVJCC) announced a partnership to launch ClubGenki, a culturally-sensitive senior adult day program that seeks to enhance the quality of life for older adults aging at home. Activities and care focus on promoting participants’ physical, mental, social, and emotional wellbeing, in a safe and socially-stimulating environment.
