Okiden C Plus C (“CPC”), an investee of Inspire Investment Corporation, and Naha-city have concluded the agreement under which they will work closely together and cooperate to conduct a pilot project explosive expansion of the aging demographic to solve social issues including a growing need for larger workforce to care for the elderly by local governments as well as an increase in the time and economic burden on families living with the elderly, contributing to build a society filled with energy and smiles of people.
The rapid growth of the aging population and the shortage of young workers have become social issues. In Okinawa prefecture, the number of single elderly households has exceeded the national average, which causes concerns for families who live apart and increases the burden on community support. Starting in the fiscal year of 2022, Naha-city will introduce the “New Mimamori (caring family monitor),” proposed by Okiden C plus C, without using cameras or microphones to build a system that ” always looks after the elderly with care,” creating the opportunity for elderly people to live with peace of mind in the homes and communities that they are accustomed to.
