On the cutting edge of technology: Japan’s approach to Robotics usage in Seniors Living and Care.
Watch the film of the 2017 edition:
People over the age of 65 make up a quarter of Japan’s population, and this demographic will only continue to grow rapidly: seniors are on track to reach 40 per cent in the coming years. As the Baby Boomer generation reaches retirement age, nations around the world are forced to contend with how to address the challenges created for the government and economy. How does Japan, a nation always at the forefront of technology and innovation both in theory and practice, address this pressing and universal issue?
This unique tour will examine pioneering examples, sites and conceptual approaches in the burgeoning field of elderly care in a nation known for its forward-thinking treatment of the elderly. Participants will engage at an executive level with Japanese senior managers, local government representatives, and top industry associations.
This tour is aimed at CEOs, senior executives and facility managers looking to gain fresh insights into care delivery for their organisations. Attendees will come away from the study tour with a strong understanding of the financial, technical and cultural aspects that place Japan ahead of any other nation in elderly care.
