Kokoro Kai

Adult Day Center

Spend The Day With Your Extended Family

With Kokoro Kai, you can take a break from caregiving. Your loved one can remain active and engaged, expand his/her social contacts, and possibly improve brain health, even if memory issues and/or declining mobility have reduced your loved one’ zest for life.

Participants form close social bonds with their peers in English and Japanese, surprise their families and our staff with their hidden talents, and develop new skills through creative projects. They eagerly await their next Kokoro kai day and often enjoy renewed enthusiasm and purpose.

Seniors who live alone or stay at home all day are welcome to spend time full of heartfelt interaction and participate in activities for the mind and body.

FAQs

Q: Is transportation provided?

Yes, we provide door-to-door transportation in our wheelchair-equipped buses for those who live within Kokoro Kai's bus route. For others, arrangements can often be made with volunteer drivers if family members are unable to bring them.

Q: What are the fees?

There is a daily fee of $45 to help cover program costs. This fee includes transportation, lunch and snacks, activities and outings. Keiro Northwest substantially subsidizes Kokoro Kai since participant fees do not cover the full cost of the program. For those participants who can benefit from more individualized group activities, a smaller Level 2 class is available, at a cost of $50 per day. We experienced a fee increase for 2017.

Q: What are some benefits to me as a caregiver?

All full-time caregivers need opportunities to relax and renew. While your family member spends the day with friends at the program, you will have a break to go shopping, run errands -- or just take time for yourself.
