Services to improve systems for supporting people' s daily lives
Community care plazas work with the community to create a system that allows each senior citizen to live comfortably in their own familiar neighborhoods while maintaining their identity and valuing each individual's capabilities.

These services are provided under the long-term care insurance system.
