Functional Recovery Care

Asia is facing a massive demographic shift. By 2050, the number of people in Asia who are aged 65 or older is expected to grow to 937 million people—more than double of today's number. 
Recognising the inevitable impact this will have on the region, the Japanese government launched the Asia Health and Wellbeing Initiative (AHWIN) in 2016 to share information and resources on ageing with Asian countries. 
Japan is the fastest ageing society in the world that has grappled with the problems that resulted from ageing for many years; thus, it has accumulated valuable experience and lessons. For example, The Functional Recovery Care is one of the approaches that help seniors regain their ability to live independently.

The Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA), in cooperation with the Japan Society of Functional Recovery Care and Power Rehabilitation, created the teaching materials of ‘Functional Recovery Care’. This textbook and its accompanying video series is one of the ways to educate care workers as a step towards the achievement of healthy and active ageing in Asia.
