Senior citizens to enjoy luxurious new residence

Date Posted: 2006-07-14

Elderly citizens will next year be able to live in a state-of-the-art residential facility that includes nursing home capabilities.

‘The Port Hillock” will, according to Kaihou Hospital’s Touru Funakoshi, be the biggest, most luxurious senior citizens home on the island. It will be located near the Okinawa Convention Center, west of Highway 58 in the Makiminato area. It will feature a beautiful ocean view, according to Funakoshi, the hospital director.

“I started to build this facility because of my parents,” he says. “I lost my mother last year and after that, father had to stay alone. When he got sick, he had nowhere to go.” The hospital leader says “Yes, aged people need a place where they can have relaxation and nursing care.”

He promises “it will be a little bit more than a normal citizens home, but I give the best service.” Funakoshi says the facility will blend Okinawa nature with urban life, much like a resort hotel. Its apartments will be for anyone in the elderly age group, and one wing will have nursing care. The nursing staff “will be more than normal,” he promises, “with about 1.5 times what state regulations require staffs to hire.”

The Port Hillock will be 13 floors, plus a basement, and will have a large parking area for visitors. Funakoshi says there will be a park, spa, restaurant, fitness center, library and arts and craft facilities. There will also be a theater, culture and tea rooms, and an amusement area. He says Okinawa’s never had such a high grade facility.

“I’m looking for people not only from Okinawa, but from outside,” he says. “There will be long stay residents.” The model home unit will open August 5th near Kaihou Hospital. Details are available by calling 0120-87-1609.
