Miss Hidemi Nagahama
Finding Umenoki

It was a precious experience at Umenoki Home.

A smooth start to new life

A long-term stay in America was a little bit concerning, but thanks to everyone at Umenoki Home, I was able to settle in quickly.

A moving experience that was very educational

They also helped me learn so much about caregiving in general and Umenoki's compassionate care through this internship program.

Planning & organizing events

As a group, interns were allowed to plan and organize many activities and seasonal events.

Between internship and English school

People at English school I went were also very nice to me.

Experience would lead to future career

When I returned home and had job interviews, virtually every interviewer got impressed and weighed on my experience in America.
