Making a Difference

Dedicated to the Good Work

At each of our MBK Senior Living communities, we center our approach around the Japanese concept of Yoi Shigoto, or “the good work.” We approach our work in the senior living profession with an attitude of positivity. But it’s more than just a belief. We put that belief into action every day. From our parent company, Mitsui & Co., to The Creekside and each of our other communities, our commitment to the good work infuses everything we do with an eye toward generosity and kindness.

That is why we support other organizations that do the good work in their communities. At the corporate level, we host leadership retreats that help us support our favorite nonprofits including Together We Rise, an organization that seeks to reimagine the foster experience for children around the country.

The MBK Philosophy

Yoi Shigoto is the guiding principle for each of our MBK communities. By striving for the greater good, we believe that we bring positive change in our sphere of influence. We devote ourselves to the good work while making decisions, interacting with loved ones, and supporting our residents. As a business, we put people before profits. But we believe that when you do the good work, the profits take care of themselves.
