Save Our Seniors Network (SOSN) is an all-volunteer network of individuals and organizations working to secure the continuation of bilingual and bi-cultural care services for seniors residing at the facilities formerly known as Keiro Nursing and Retirement Homes, a Japanese American institution for nearly 50 years.
No other facilities exist that provide the same level of care as these facilities and healthcare inequality persists. The profit objectives of the international corporate developer owners, Pacifica Companies, causes them to seek to degrade and eliminate the services our seniors need. As a community, we must stand together to support our seniors.
