Miss Yukie Yusa
Interest in senior care overseas

I have a 15-year experience as a certified caregiver in Japan.

Importance of seasonal activities

During my 3-month stay at Umenoki Home, there were lots of seasonal events in America: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year.

Attitude to keep trying something new

Seasonal events not only provide the residents with fun times but also the connection to their longing home country Japan.

Interaction with residents

Getting to know the residents of Umenoki Home was very memorable.

And staff members, too

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.
