ABOUT SAKURA CAREGIVER & HEALTHCARE SCHOOL
As Japan's population ages, the problem of the "nursing care shortage" is becoming a serious one.
This is because nursing care is an indispensable job for people to live safely and comfortably even as they age and their health declines.
According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, there will be a shortage of about 500,000 to 600,000 nursing care workers in Japan in 2025, when the baby boomers will be 75 years old or older.
We at Sakura Caregiver and Health Care School would like to do our best to help these elderly people in Japan.
Filipino caregivers are known to be the most hospitable people in the world.
We sincerely hope that we can send many Filipino caregivers with good hearts to Japan to make the elderly people in Japan happy.
That is why we opened the Sakura Care Giver and Health Care School.
Our mission is to send as many excellent caregivers as possible from the Sakura Caregiver and Healthcare School to Japan and the world.
