6 July: Singapore announces new eldercare facility inspired by Japan
The revived Jade Circle, jointly developed by the Lien Foundation, Khoo Chwee Neo Foundation & The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home, is expected to be ready by the end of 2019 to transform care and enable Singaporeans to age meaningfully. Read the press release and preview of the facility.
Taking place from 26-29 September 2017 in Tokyo, the 4th edition of the Ageing Asia Innovation Forum in Japan will be focusing on Sharing the experiences from Japan: Transforming experiences from hyper-ageing Japan to inspire individuals and organisations with actionable ideas. Conducted in English, this annual event in Japan, held in conjunction with the 44th International Home Care & Rehabilitation Exhibition (H.C.R), serves as a dedicated platform and training opportunity for international leaders in eldercare and healthcare who are looking to gain a better understanding from the Japanese models or to access the Japan market.
The conference aims to challenge you to think beyond your typical job routine with new perspective in approaching care for your clients. We want to inspire you with the wealth of wisdom and experience of world-class business leaders. You will be equipped with new ideas, knowledge and strategies that will benefit your organisation. The full 4-days programme will include two targeted groups of practical onsite workshops focusing on senior living and care, social and health engagement programmes, cognitive and physical care rehabilitation care management. The experience will offer insights into Japan’s sophisticated aged care operational and service model.
Japan took centre stage having experience a fourfold increase in their ageing population making them a super ageing society from the 1990s. The stark change in demographics has driven and qualified Japan as leaders in developing innovative product and services for the eldercare industry, beyond that being community-driven, rather than health care-system driven. Japan has the world's oldest population, with more than a quarter of its citizens aged 65 or above. By 2025, the youngest baby boomers will turn 75 years old.
