To increase the quality of life of persons with dementia and to lessen the burden on their carers, some support (e.g. home visit, chatting, accompanying the older person for a short walk outside, etc) that are not covered by the national nursing care insurance (long-term medical insurance) can be provided for up to 4 hours per week at a reasonbale cost (500 yen per hour). Older persons (65 years old or above) with dementia or their families may request this service.
