Blowing bubbles on an early autumn day at Nikkei Manor As your loved one grows older, physical care needs may change, but the need for community does not. At Nikkei Manor, we recognize this essential truth. We have designed an assisted living environment that celebrates the individual and focuses on his or her unique needs.

If you are new to the concept of assisted living, think of it as a caring and supportive community for the older person who welcomes help with daily tasks such as meals, personal grooming, or remembering to take medication, but does not require skilled nursing care. For this person and his or her family, maintaining the highest level of independence and choice is key. Nikkei Manor's assisted living environment provides the necessary supports to maintain a lifestyle of active choice.

"The facility does a very good job of taking care of the residents and meeting their needs."
-Nikkei Manor Family Member

"Whatever I ask the staff to do for me, they do — and they do it well."

"I'm lucky to be here."
-Nikkei Manor Residents

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you have any apartments available?
  • Availability varies from week to week. For further information or to schedule a tour, please contact Rose Dracobly, Admissions and Marketing Director, at 206.423.1806.

  • How do I know if assisted living is the right option for my loved one?

  • You know your loved one best, so begin with your own observations. Have you noticed changes in an older relative or friend? Perhaps he or she hasn't been eating as well as before, or upkeep of the home is too burdensome. Tasks that used to be easy, such as shopping for groceries, cooking, or taking prescription medicine, have become difficult. This once-active person is increasingly reclusive; yet you know that he or she could benefit by more contact with friends and would welcome support with tasks of daily living. If you notice these things, assisted living is an option you should consider.

  • How much does it cost to live there?
  • The base rent depends upon the size of apartment you choose and any additional services selected. Services for Medication Assistance, Incontinence Assistance, and Safety are available at an additional monthly rate. Nikkei Manor is unique to include basic ADL (Activities of Daily Living  bathing, grooming, dressing) support in our base rent.

  • Do you accept Medicaid?
  • We have a limited number of Medicaid apartments. However, 3 years of private pay status is required before consideration for one of these apartments as one becomes available.

  • Do you accept Long Term Care Insurance?
  • It depends on your individual policy. Please contact Lisa Waisath, Assisted Living Manager, at 206.726.6471 for further information.

  • 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.

  • Are the apartments furnished? Can I hang things on the walls?

You can settle into your new apartment in as little as 48 hours under normal circumstances.

  • I'm not ready to move quite yet. Does it cost anything to be on the Waiting List?
  • We are happy to keep your name on our waiting list, with no cost to you. Send in a completed application form, and we will keep in touch as apartments become available  you can let us know when you're ready to move.
