企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)

昨年末中国の60歳以上の高齢者人口は2.2億人を突破した。36年間の「一人っ子」政策を背景に急速に進む高齢社会化は経済成長の別側面であり、対策の準備と実施は急務となっている。高齢者人口率が一番高い上海市は、常に政策の実践と実績で中国の先頭的存在であるため全国への波及効果が期待できる。一方、日本では認知症ケアで先進的な脱薬や在宅診療など多くの取り組みや研究などがなされている。 認知症を取り巻く様々な問題をコミュニケーション・住環境・運動・食事などの共通観点から、上海市と日本との交流を通じて、日本の先進的な理念と成果を発信すると同時に、上海市の様々な活動、とりわけ地域の中で住民たちが支え合う生活システムを紹介し、認知症になり難い、認知症になっても安心して暮らせるまちづくりという両国にとっての課題をコアテーマとし、そこから両国の生活文化への落とし込みを行い、実践的なアクションプランの構想提案を目指す。

By the end of last year, the population of elderly people over 60 years old had reached the number of 220 millions in China. On the bright side of One-Child Policy, it founded a solid financial ground for a successful economic growth. However, in order to cope with current issue of aging population, an effective and executable plan is now a first priority to look into. Shanghai, which has the highest rate of elderly citizens over total population, has performed noticeably well in terms of representativeness and perspectiveness of its solutions and outcomes. In the meanwhile, Japan has started to initiate many leading-edge researches about dementia care like medicine withdrawal and in-home diagnosis and treatment. It is a common understanding that dementia is affected by communication, living environment, sports and dieting habit. By closely observing the supportive neighbors of Shanghai community and spreading the advanced scientific achievements from Japan could provide an invaluable opportunity to enhance the cooperation in this particular field. Therefore, a comprehensive discussion between Shanghai and Tokyo is necessary for preventing dementia and promoting the related caring facilities. The mission aligns the mutual interests of both countries as well as the cultural preferences.

It is believed that more comprehensive recognition about dementia caring has been acquired from this exchange study.
