What is a “Multifunctional Long-Term Care in a Small Group Home (Kan-Taki)”?

It is a facility that users can receive nursing care services either by commuting, by staying overnight, or by accepting visiting nursing care at home 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This allows users to spend their time “sometimes at home, sometimes at Kan-taki,” as they wish.

Since nurses are always available, even those who are highly dependent on medical care are able to use this service. Users pay a fixed monthly fee, so that they can choose whether they stay at Kan-taki or stay at home according to their physical or family’s conditions without worrying about the frequency of services or length of stay.
