The Best Collection Of Japan Long term Care
Japan took centre stage having experienced 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 the development of innovative products and services for the eldercare industry. Japan’s eldercare is 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.
In 2012, the Japanese government implemented the community-based integrated care system, which integrates various health-related resources within the community through cooperation among formal, long-term care facilities, welfare and medical care specialists, and informal voluntary activities by the residents. The Long Term Care Insurance (LTCI) scheme is named one of the most generous long term care systems in the world, in terms of coverage and benefits.
