For our upcoming luncheon seminar, we are joined by Dr. Ogasawara, MD, Chairman of the Japan Home Hospice Association.
As Japan’s average age moves higher and higher, and as the dire need for home care comes back into the spotlight, there are more and more people who prefer to spend their last days in the comfort of their own homes.
So then, when that question becomes a reality, what sort of environment, what sort of conditions must be in place for a person to spend the final phase of their life in the place they have come to feel most comfortable? Dr. Ogasawara will lend his extensive experience in contributing to the spread of long-term home care and home hospice, in a discussion on relationships with families and friends, deathbed caregiving, money, and finding the right healthcare provider.
