In partnership with Keiro, Pasadena Buddhist Temple, Pasadena Japanese Cultural Institute, Altadena Presbyterian, and Pasadena Nikkei Seniors are in the midst of planning another Caregiver Conference to be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This will be the third Caregiver Conference provided to our community through Keiro, the last two of which were well attended and very successful.
There will be promotional information available in the coming weeks, but for now, the Conference includes Keynote Presentations on “Iyashi Care and Caregiving Family Dynamics” and “Managing Caregiver Stress.” There will be three breakout sessions concerning “Mobile Caregiving,” “Hands-On Caregiving” and “Preparing for In-Home Care.” A Resource Fair and individual professional consultations (by appointment only) will be included along with a hosted Bento lunch.
There is no charge to attend this conference, but registration is limited and registration is required. There are registration forms available right now in the auditorium and once filled out can be mailed to Keiro, attention to Bryce Ikemura at 420 East Third Street, Suite 1000, Los Angeles, CA 90013. Registration can also be made online by clicking the button below or by calling 213.873.5708.
In 2016, KEIRO initiated an Inaugural Grants Program designed to engage and support older adult Japanese-Americans in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura Counties. Thanks to a grant proposal submitted by Scott Shinmoto, the Pasadena Nikkei Seniors was one of the Keiro Grant recipients, receiving funding to be used for the core operation of its monthly 2017-18 lunch program, including its annual 2018 New Year’s Party. The PNS is very grateful to KEIRO for establishing the Grant Program and thanks KEIRO for selecting us as a grant recipient.
