Q: Does Nikkei Manor have availability? I heard there is a long waiting list.
Yes, we currently have availability at Nikkei Manor! We maintain a list of families who want to stay updated on our availability and hope to make Nikkei Manor home one day.

Q: Do you accept Long Term Care Insurance?
It depends on your individual policy. Please contact Teri McLaughlin, Director, at 206.726.6460 for further information.
Q: Do you have to be Japanese to live there?
People of all ethnic backgrounds are welcome. We embrace an increasingly diverse community while honoring our Japanese American heritage and history.
Q: Are the apartments furnished? Can I hang things on the walls?
Apartments come unfurnished so that you may create your own home with the things that are familiar to you. We encourage you to hang your favorite pictures, mirrors, or shelves. Our Facilities Manager will be happy to assist you to assure they are secure.
Q: Do you offer transportation for residents?
Transportation for medical appointments in the Seattle area is available through our team of volunteer drivers.
Q: What are the local amenities?
Located in the heart of the International District, Nikkei Manor offers its residents a variety of stores, restaurants and services within walking distance or a short car ride. Both Century LinkField and Safeco Field are within blocks of our community, Daiso is conveniently located in the northwest corner of the building and Uwajimaya is just across 6th Avenue.
Q: What is the process to move in and how long does it take?
Once you complete the application, select an available apartment, and complete the move-in paperwork (including one form for your doctor), we will schedule a health assessment with our Health Services Manager. You can settle into your new apartment in as little as 48 hours after the health assessment under normal circumstances.
