J-Sei Home


J-Sei Home is a wonderful, Japanese assisted-living option in San Francisco Bay Area. The 14-bed licensed Residential-Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) provides care based on Nikkei traditions with an emphasis on Japanese and Asian meals, engaging activities and a warm, supportive environment.
