Hope and fears

Through my 2-month volunteer internship this summer, I had lots of experience.

We don't get much opportunity to meet people like Umenoki residents

All of my fears, though, slowly went away as I learned more about caregiving.

True Japanese hospitality

Watching how Umenoki staff care for and relate to its residents, I realized how difficult caregiving was.

Everyone should know more about caregiving

The experience made me feel every single one of us should know more about caregiving and know that it' a family affair.
