August 18, 2010
The Japan Research Institute, Limited (JRI) has published estimates based on the results of the Potential Home Care Worker Survey, sponsored by the government under the fiscal 2009 Health and Welfare Promotion Program for Elderly People and conducted in October 2009 among 3,000 people who had completed any of Grades 1-3 of the Home Care Worker Training Program.
JRI's Potential Home Care Worker Survey project has been chosen to receive government sponsorship under the fiscal 2010 Health and Welfare Promotion Program for Elderly People. In view of last year's results, this year's survey will be conducted in still greater detail at prefectural level, with a view to building up a picture of the recruitment and utilization of human resources for In-home Long-Term Care at local and central government levels and providing a basis for policy proposals. The results of this year's survey are due to be published in April 2011.
