Creating an Aging-Friendly Community
Over the last 30+ years, Kin On has had the opportunity to serve thousands of Asian and Chinese seniors through our skilled nursing program, in-home care program, and our health & wellness program for seniors in the community. Most recently, we completed a new assisted living facility and adult family home which began its operations summer 2019.
The Kin On Assisted Living Facility and Ark & Winnie Chin Legacy Home will meet a need for culturally-sensitive supportive housing for the Asian and Chinese senior population in King County. Without services such as these, we would see more seniors being placed in facilities and homes where they:
- may be unable to communicate with staff
- have potential risk of social isolation
- may be faced with an unfamiliar diet
The Kin On Assisted Living Facility and Ark & Winnie Chin Legacy Home will be different from other facilities because not only will it cater specifically to the Asian and Chinese senior population with appropriate food, language, and activities, but it will also offer the following:
- personalized care – keeping a low ratio of caregivers/nurses to residents
- circle of care – residents will be part of a continuum of care at Kin On with access to health & wellness classes in the community center, and priority placement in the Kin On nursing home to receive 24-hr skilled nursing care or short-term rehabilitation when needed
We see the Assisted Living apartments and the Adult Family Home as integral parts of our not-for-profit mission and the completion of our vision to provide care along the entire aging continuum. We have a fundraising need of $250,000 each year to keep these buildings running – will you help provide a home for Asian seniors in King County? Please consider making a donation today!
