The interactions which value this “Obviousness” is called “Rights-Based Approach; RBA.” We try to develop human resources who can value two-way relations through deep conversation and interaction to support people, not one way relationships such the role between “Those who provide nursing services” and “Those who receive nursing services”.

Ms. Agnes Fripas, a caregiver from the Philippines
Ms. Agnes Fripas, an employee from the Philippines has worked in “Group Home Yukari no Mori”. Previously, she had gotten a lisence of a care worker and worked as a care worker for three years. Then she returned back to the Philippines where her family lived. After that, she really wanted to care for the elderly in Japan, and finally she was recruited by Seizankai Group thanks to the cooperating organization.
Ms. Agnes talked about followings in the interview.
My partner, Mr. Yaegashi kindly supported me, so I felt encouraged.
After that, he has been taken closer look on my live in Japan. Therefore, I was able to work without any problem.
As a foreigner, leaving their own countries and working in unfamiliar places is never easy. It is important to find companies or communities which hold up good and trustworthy management ideologies, and talk with the workers seriously. Iʼm sure that if you can love the countries, citizens there, languages there, and elderly people around you, you will be able to succeed.
She finally gave us following messages: “Letʼs achieve your dream. We always support you.”

Interests and difficulities of Nursing care
I really like talking about my family in Philippines with elderly people, and I also like to hear about their families. We sometimes have meal, or drive to see cherry blossom(Hanami) together, and we become exciting and smile. I love such moments and I can find worth working through them. When I first started this job, I felt sad because my co-workers worried too much about me. Looking back, I was keep working with uncertainly in the beginning. However, my anxiety and worries was solved as time goes by.
I had studied Japanese before, so I could communicate with my basic Japanese skills without any big troubles in terms of languages. However, Iʼm still have trouble understanding so-called “local dialect” particular to a local area in Miyagi. Every time I face in such a situation, my co-workers supported me.
Toward the next dream
Fortunately, I can work in great environment. Before working in Seizankai Group, we just took care of elderly people one-sidedly, and I thought it was general. However, in the current workplace, co-workers always think of elderly people and communicate carefully to think and act together. I love this environment, because everyone is active and full of smile.
My current dream is going back to Philippines to found similar facilities and make a lot of buddies.
