FEATURING NEW & INNOVATIVE FACILITIES IN JAPAN
This Autumn, Ageing Asia is launching a two part series onsite workshop in Japan to understand their sophisticated long term care system and the dynamic business models in advancing care. The first 4 days (10-13 Oct) is an introduction track focusing on facilities and programmes within Metropolitan Tokyo & Greater Tokyo, giving you an overall landscape to Japan's long term care.
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.
