Our Short-Term Stay Service
Product ImageShort Stay

Senior Village Sakura has started a short-term stay service for seniors from Japan visiting their children or siblings and looking for a temporary place to stay during their visit. We offer a single-occupancy room with household furniture, a bed, a toilet, and a television set with 24-hour Japanese programming, as well as Japanese meals.

While many long- and short-term facilities and group homes for seniors exist in the United States, very few of them have helpers who speak Japanese, let alone offer Japanese meals. Not only seniors who have just arrived from Japan but also those who have been living in the States for a long time seem to find communication in English becoming harder with age, and find it more comfortable to communicate in Japanese. We have secured a room for these people so that they can enjoy their stay as if they were in their own homes. This service requires that the guests be able to take care of themselves. However, please consult us for people with light disability or mild dementia. This is a space where people who fear communicating in English can spend time comfortably. We are sure the families of the guests will have their minds at ease. Please contact us if you are interested.
