AICHI – In November 2020, a man in his late 30s who worked at a short-term facility for people with disabilities in Nagoya died. He collapsed while working the night shift alone and was found in the morning. With this death as a trigger, the movement to improve the environment of welfare sites is accelerating.

“If only there was one more person”

The man started work at 5:00 pm, and was found at 9:00 am the next day by a helper who had come to pick up a facility resident. The cause of death was subarachnoid hemorrhage.

There were two residents in the facility when the man collapsed. One had a physical disability and intellectual disability, and apparently heard a loud noise when the man fell down.
