Various Projects

In Japan,the number of very elderly (“fourth age”) people is expected to rise rapidly, especially in urban regions.
Nursing care policies for the past 20 years had assumedelderly individuals would be transferred to nursing care facilities or hospitals in cases where they became unable to live at home any longer.
As the current situation continues, a vast number of facility improvements will be required immediately, and the feasibility of these improvements raises concerns.
On the other hand, the number of elderly individuals who wouldlike to continue to live at home is high, even for individuals certified as being in need of care.
We are addressing various projects in order to tackle these problems and establish a society where elderly people can continue to live at home independently and with dignity, even when they become frail.
