Elderly Care by the Elderly (노노 케어)

To prevent social isolation of older persons, the Ministry of Health and Welfare promotes "Elderly-to-elderly Care", where older persons take care of other older persons with low levels of ADL (activities of daily living) or other types of disabilities, arranged through local senior clubs. Elders pay home visit to other elders with difficulties in mobility, and give emotional support and help with carrying out ADL. The visits are usually made three times a week.
