Overview

Learn how social engagement and inclusivity supports healthy aging in Japan

Approximately 28% of Japan’s present population is 65 or over. It is expected that by 2030, one out of every three people will be elderly. On this course, you’ll consider the challenges of an aging population, and discover why this super-aging society does not lack vitality.

You will explore the concept of healthy aging from a scientific and healthcare perspective, and identify the impact of social engagement for aging populations. You’ll also learn the policies surrounding age-inclusivity in Japan, and discover how the government and communities are supporting their aging society together.

This course is designed for policy makers, carers, educators and researchers engaged in elderly care.

It will also be useful for anyone interested in living as a healthy older person and anyone considering technological or business development to support the elderly.
