Elder-to-elder nursing care is expanding in Japan due to the aging of care workers.

The ratio of elderly workers is rapidly rising in the nursing care sector because young people are unwilling to take on the tough, low-paying work.

While care services, including bathing support, are physically tough for elderly caregivers, receivers feel reassured when they are taken care of by those from the same generation. Elderly caregivers thus remain indispensable in the industry.
