We support the senior citizens and physically disabled people who receive long-term nursing care at home in leading more fulfilling lives through our home welfare transport service car donation program since 1985.
In Japan’s super-aging society, the number of senior citizens and disabled people requiring nursing care has continued to increase. To bring these individuals the peace of mind that comes from leading an independent life in familiar surroundings, a variety of facilities have begun offering day services, day care and other welfare services for those living at home. The specially-equipped para-transit vehicles donated by Chugai are used as a means of transportation between these facilities and the homes of those using the services.
The welfare vehicle donation program is conducted in cooperation with the Japan National Council of Social Welfare and the Central Community Chest of Japan, and through them, vehicles have been donated to recipients in all of Japan’s 47 prefectures.
Utilization Status of Donated Vehicles
We asked the two facilities that donated the Vehicles in the past to cooperate with us, and asked about their current utilization status and also episodes at the time of donation.
In this interview, we were able to recognize that these vehicles donated by our company are being utilized as a means of transport linking these facilities with individual homes or transportation to and from medical institutions.
