Group Home – Nikoniko Home Care

Group Home

We are building a small group home in Burnaby by the early 2023. 10 beds only, all services are provided in Japanese style. This at-home facility will give a new insight into elderly care in Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions

How big is the room?

Each room is just under 300 SQ and has a shower and a toilet. You can bring your bed and other individual furniture. The rooms are equipped with the latest AI technology, allowing communication from the room to the staff.

Can a couple move in together?

There are ten private rooms with a shower and a toilet. However, if you are a couple, you can combine two rooms, so it is possible to move in as a couple.

Who are your staff?

There are two full-time caregiving staff, plus cooking, cleaning and recreational staff as appropriate. There is also a nurse on call for emergencies.

Are meals provided?

Yes. We will provide you mainly with Japanese meals three times a day. And we invite our residents to cook with us and feel the joy of cooking and serving.

Do I have to move out when I need more care?

No, you will not. We are a private home, and once you have moved in, we will try to ensure that you stay in the same place until the end of your life. We will consult with you as necessary to determine the care you will need.

Can I sign up for the waiting list now?

Yes, we are happy to take your name on our waiting list. We will inform you once the completion of the facility is getting closer.

How much does it cost?

This depends on how much care the resident might need. The basic price includes three meals a day, weekly cleaning, supervision of full-time caregivers, basic care, and daily activities. The basic price will be soon to be announced. Additional services can be offered as required.

What are the criteria for moving in?

The facility manager and nurse carry out a pre-admission assessment and interview to determine the level of care required.

How do I spend my time?

The aim is to create a home-from-home experience. In addition, we will create a space where ten residents can enjoy their life by adding Japanese-style activities. For example, cooking, vegetable gardening, brain training, walks in the neighborhood, and exchanges with the local school children.
