Building evidence for resilient health and community systems focusing on vulnerable populations, including long-term psycho-social impact on survivors. Dr Kayano highlighted the increasing number of people with dementia globally and the need for implementation research to implement policies and programmes, based on reliable scientific evidence.
The Kobe Dementia Project, which aims to build a successful local model of early detection and intervention for dementia through collaboration between Kobe City and Kobe University, indicates the importance of producing and facilitating local case models of health system management for dementia, with an effective scientific monitoring-assessment-improvement cycle through collaboration between academia and public entities.
JAGES began in as a multidisciplinary project focusing on social welfare, public policy, health sciences and evaluation research.
JAGES has produced quality scientific evidence on what promotes good health among older people. For instance, research findings from the population surveys have continuously contributed to improving policies for providing long-term care in Japan. Collaboration with multiple departments in local government and non-public sector stakeholders has broadened the relevance of this research beyond health.
Importantly, this work has been acknowledged globally, with over 50 academic awards since , and the publication of more than academic articles. WKC is honoured to play a key role in transmitting those lessons from Japan to the world.
As we honour the elders in Japan today, we remind policy makers that the social well-being of older people can be improved even as their physical or mental health declines. Community-based programmes for older people will help keep them active and prevent dementia, and all elderly people should be included in prevention efforts, not just those at risk of declining health. For communities, building good relationships can help everyone live long and be healthy.
Reaching out to older people who are isolated will help to support them to be part of the community. Spaces for people to gather to enjoy company will contribute to these efforts. For individual elderly people, interacting with other people daily can help them stay active and healthy. This could include eating with others to make them happier and healthier. And being a good neighbour can help keep the doctor away!
We treasure the elderly people in Japan, and thank them for their enormous contributions to society.
