Right at Home Launches Care Partnership for Japan's Aging Population with Commemorative Seminar
International In-Home Senior Care Franchise Opens to Serve Seniors and Disabled Adults in Japan
Omaha, Neb. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014 - Right at Home, a leading in-home senior care company, is embarking on a project to improve care for Japan's rapidly growing aging population. In conjunction with Watahan Kouki Ltd., Right at Home has positioned itself to meet the in-home care needs of the more than 30 million seniors over the age of 65 living in Japan. The Statistics Bureau of Japan reports Japanese residents over the age of 65 account for 23.5 percent of the country's total population are predicted to swell to 40 percent of the population in 30 years, clearly demonstrating the need for Right at Home's services.
Understanding the importance of supporting the senior population of Japan, Watahan developed a "Platinum Life" business segment offering seniors equipment rentals, preventative care, and housing and day care centers; services that have all been very successful. Recognizing the need to provide a full continuum of care to the Japanese senior population, Watahan has partnered with Right at Home to provide in-home care services.
"As a country, Japan has one of the world's highest life expectancies. As a result, in-home care solutions will reach a critical mass as the country's residents age," said Allen Hager, Executive Chairman and Founder of Right at Home. "We know we will have a successful partnership with Watahan because they exemplify the same commitment to quality and dedication to excellence as Right at Home. By working together and sharing insights, we will improve our clients' quality of life and make them much happier in the process."
It is Watahan's legacy of exceptional service, its commitment to an unrivaled client experience, and its drive to provide premium senior care that will make Right at Home Japan a defining force in the home care industry. This business culture, coupled with a strong leadership team headed by President Yohei Kumagai, uniquely positions Right at Home Japan to deliver unmatched, premium in-home care to seniors and disabled adults in Japan.
Right at Home is introducing a new quality-driven, client-centered care solution to the Tokyo community with a grand opening, press conference and lecture on 28 July 2014. The event will be hosted at the Setagawa-Ward Public Facility for Promoting Healthcare & Civic Exchange in the 4F Multi-Purpose Room.
Local care managers and case managers for in-home care, in addition to local authorities for preventative care, are encouraged to attend. Beginning at 18:00 JST, Kumagai will begin the event with an introduction to Right at Home Japan before the Manager of Setagawa Ward of Senior Life Advisory Institute briefly speaks. Hager will talk about premium in-home care in the United States and the global branding strategy before the evening's guest speaker, Prof. Dr. Yoshimasa Takase of Tokyo Medical University & GP in Takase Clinic, will address the latest methods of dementia treatment at home.
In addition to Japan, Right at Home has been providing in-home care to seniors and disabled adults in the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, Canada, and Ireland, and recently began offering services in Australia this spring.
