Welcome to CGSS

Arai

The Center for Gerontology and Social Science (CGSS) was founded in April, 2012 to promote empirical research in the field of gerontology and social sciences in the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology. The concept of the center is to promote the independence of older people’s mind and body, contributing to the development of a vigorous society and longevity.
CGSS consists of 6 divisions and 10 subdivisions and is inviting more than 20 researchers from outside. We are conducting empirical research on sociogerontological issues to develop a society where older people can live safely and independently in the community. The research key words in CGSS are social participation, independence support, social support, social welfare, home care, and regional comprehensive care. We are also taking the problem solution approach for the laws and measures related to older people along with health economics. Based on these research activities, CGSS is trying to promote the independence of older people, to improve the QOL, and to contribute to the end-of-life with dignity and thereby committing to the development of a vigorous society with longevity.
