Abstract

In Japan, the aging population has increased, prompting local governments to develop care preventive programs for older adult residents. However, this localized approach makes it difficult to determine the types of care preventive programs that have been developed throughout the country. Therefore, this study carried out an inventory survey of care preventive programs that were certified by the local government as having long-term care rates of 15.0% or less. The response rate of the questionnaire survey by mail was 39.5%. The results indicate that the most frequent care preventive activity was exercise. Local governments implemented care preventive programs that older adult residents tried and continued to use until participation rates for the programs were reduced for environmental maintenance. Additionally, local governments focused on developing care preventive programs that provided resident-based activities in the area.
