Broadcast on February 15, 2023 Available until February 15, 2025

Against the backdrop of societal aging and isolation in Japan, Yata Akiko is a pioneer of community nursing. Rather than direct treatment at healthcare facilities, this approach promotes integration with local people to provide advice and catch potential issues early. Inspired by the early death of her own father, Yata runs a health visit service for seniors, local "busybodies' assemblies," and training schemes whose graduates are now active in various settings across Japan.
