“NHK Special” reported on dementia, saying that the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare estimates that the number of elderly people suffering from dementia will exceed 7 million in Japan by the year 2025. The program said many people who are unmarried or don’t have full-time jobs are worried about whether they will be able to support their parents in the future. Many experts warn that Japan will enter a new era in which problems and accidents stemming from dementia occur frequently. The program reported on measures that can be taken to avoid such problems, and introduced a successful system implemented in the Netherlands to support dementia patients.
