How to use the service

In order to use the Long-Term Care Insurance Service, you need to have your nursing/support needs certified, or complete a checklist.

The certification determines the level of care you require, and is judged by a Primary Care Certification Committee composed of specialists in public health, medical care and welfare, on the basis of the result of an investigation from a home visit and your doctors opinion.

The checklist is comprised of 25 points, checking the condition of your body, etc. If it is judged that you need support or nurse care, you may be able to receive help from a day worker or help service.

You can apply to the City Office, and Minoh Life Plaza.
