I have a 15-year experience as a certified caregiver in Japan.
During my 3-month stay at Umenoki Home, there were lots of seasonal events in America: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year.
Seasonal events not only provide the residents with fun times but also the connection to their longing home country Japan.
Getting to know the residents of Umenoki Home was very memorable.
I was anxious about the new life in America, but thanks to all the kind support from Umenoki staff members, it became such a comfortable and fun one.
