In Japan, the number of elderly people aged 65 and over is increasing year by year due to the life expectancy extension. In addition, with the decline of birthrates, Japan is ageing at unprecedented speed.
In 2025, the baby boomer generation will become 75 years old and over, and the society is expected to be even more aged. The number of elderly people who need nursing care supports due to dementia or bedridden will increase.
To cope with this phenomenon, we are taking initiatives to deepen and promote the community-based integrated care system which provides integrated and seamless services of nursing care, prevention, medical, life support services and accommodation to meet wide-ranging needs, and which will enable local seniors to safely live in the place where they are used to. Yugawara Town set on this Action Plan to take our integrated approaches in “Yugawara New Comprehensive Plan 2011” and “Plan for an Elderly’s Valued Life” to promote the efforts for the insurer function reinforcement that aims to support independent lives and to prevent disease from worsening, collaboration between medical and nursing care services, and to realize a community-based society.
