Kimochi — Japanese Tradition of Care and Support for Seniors
On Sunday, October 17, ABA hosted a presentation about Kimochi by Shawne O’Connell, Director of Programs. She explained that Kimochi has two locations – San Francisco and San Mateo – that offer residential and day care services for the senior community.
The San Francisco location was founded in 1983 and offers residential programs with single and double rooms for non-ambulatory patients. The day care services include a lunch program of Japanese food and classes in tai chi for arthritis and fall prevention, origami and technology.
In 2016, Kimochi purchased a former hospice care site in San Mateo and worked for two years to retrofit the building to meet their needs. Their residential care is for non-ambulatory patients.
