About the department

Department of Social Science

The Department of Social Science aims to realize an ideal community-based comprehensive care. To achieve this goal, we conduct observational and interventional studies that contribute toward solving the issues for older adults, such as preventing the adverse prognosis of dementia and improving the quality of life of individuals with dementia, those who need care, and their families.

Research Focus

  1. We conduct research to observe how physical and mental functions and the level of care needs change in individuals with dementia and their families; furthermore, we examine related factors from interdisciplinary perspectives.
  2. We develop care programs for individuals with dementia and their caregivers, verify their effectiveness, and examine measures for social implementation.
