    • CEO: Tsuyoshi Mori

    It all started when Dr. Mori’s grandmother had a stroke and lost her ability to walk. At that time, he was working as a heart surgeon at Osaka University Hospital. Upon the decision of taking care of her, he had witnessed the reality of many bed-ridden elderly people who lacked proper care or rehabilitation. He is convinced that the issue of the bed-ridden elderly shouldn’t be ignored in the pressing situation of Japan’s aging society. Dr. Mori said, “The quality of life of the elderly matters. I would like them to live well in their hometown.”
