企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)


Although older persons requiring care will increase both countries in connection with population aging, it is not progressing yet to share the knowledge and skills of long-term care for the elderly. In spite of accepting Indonesian care worker candidates based the bilateral economic partnership agreement, Japanese policy shows its deadlock now because of its insufficient preparation. Then, we will propose a plan, which is focus on the difference in each social background, and which aims to understand the long-term care for the elderly with each other and which is enabling for care workers to migrate internationally. It proposes to the every sector concerned about the framework of the Asia-Pacific long-term care certificate for securing the quality of care-giving work. We will propose the framework which attains illustration of a new classified education and training program and the common program which especially raises knowledge and skills for such beginners as family caregivers, neighbor caregivers, and volunteer caregivers. Moreover, we will propose the mutual exchange of talented persons who train the trainer of long-term care for the elderly.

実施報告書・概要 (Summary of Final Report)


We recommended the brain circulation of care workers between Japan and Indonesia to Indonesian policy makers. Otherwise, a brain drain will be occurred for Indonesian candidates of certified care worker in Japan, we are afraid. One of possibility is an appointment for returnees of care worker from Japan as trainers of care beginners in Indonesia. Family caregivers and community volunteers engage in long-term care for the elderly in Indonesia. It needs to brush up their literacy of care. For providing programs for training trainers, we recommended for Fukuoka-city to establish an international training center of care. Also, we reflected our experience of exchange in Indonesia to apply for a national project of module program development toward a global standard of care training, which is promoted in a strategic leading project of training of core human capital for a growth industry by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Sciences and Technology. Furthermore, we, AABC, make a memorandum of understanding with Respati University of Yogyakarta for promoting exchange programs. We presented our opinion to the society of certified care workers.
