How can the elderly with disabilities stay active in society and maintain their lifestyle without shutting themselves in? By learning to live with illness and disabilities, building a medical support system to develop their abilities as best they can, and creating an optimum environment to support their social activities. Dr. Sako believes Japan’s role is to develop a local model to implement these solutions and spread it across the country and throughout Asia.
