Pediatric and incurable disease specialist Medicare (operating company: Five.H Co., Ltd.)
Medicare (Five.H Co., Ltd.) has started providing overnight overnight services for children who require medical care in Gunma Prefecture. This service will be available for the first time on March 30, 2024, and will provide new support to children in medical care and their families.

Medicare (Five.H Co., Ltd.) operates a nursing and nursing care business based on the philosophy of “using OnlyOne technology to solve social issues that can only be solved by us.” We aim to provide a system where people can receive the support they need when they need it, regardless of municipality.

Service overview
This service is aimed at children who require specialized medical care, such as managing ventilators and suctioning sputum.Nurses stay overnight at children’s homes to provide care. I will do it. During this time, your family will be provided with a safe environment to sleep.
The conditions for providing this service are those who have received a payment decision for in-home care under the disability welfare service and who have been approved by the government to use the service for long periods of time at night.

Nighttime situation of families with children under medical care Some children in medical care rely on ventilators at night. A ventilator is an important device for sustaining life, so even minute movements of the patient’s neck affect the connected parts and alarms are activated frequently, even if the patient does not feel any pain. Because of this, families often wake up, sometimes 4-5 times an hour. According to a 2016 survey conducted by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, approximately 53.5% of caregivers of children on ventilators reported sleeping less than 5 hours, and 70.4% only got intermittent sleep. is the answer.
In this way, medical care is not temporary care but a part of daily life, and chronic sleep deprivation can also affect the mental health of caregivers.
Children are important and lovable beings in every family, but due to continued sleep deprivation and fatigue, children can become easily irritated and feel a mental burden.
User’s voice
In the past six years since my child had a tracheostomy, the medical care situation has changed and respiratory care has become even more necessary, and I often need suction or cuff assistance day and night. It became difficult not only to go out, but even to go to the hospital.Then, with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the only medical institution I could visit for short stays continued to suspend short stays, and I had no time to rest at all. Every day is exhausting both physically and mentally. I even thought about living my life with my family.
I want to be with my child forever! I have this feeling very strongly. However, as our children grow up, we as parents wonder how long we will be able to live with them and care for them if we continue to live a life of lack of sleep and fatigue, with suction and respiratory care all day long and only 3 to 4 hours of sleep. As I get older, I start to get sick more and more every year, and my physical strength becomes very demanding…My anxiety becomes really big.
Almost a year ago, I wrote on my blog that when my baby, who has the same myotubular myopathy, was discharged from the hospital, I used a night helper to help me sleep and rest. When I found an article about a child living outside Gunma Prefecture, I was surprised to hear that it was like a dream world and I couldn’t believe it was the same Japan.
I had never heard of such a story in Gunma Prefecture. I asked medical institutions, government offices, and consultation support specialists in Gunma Prefecture to gather information, but the replies were, “I’ve never heard of this, and there are no cases in Gunma
Prefecture.”
I really wished that there was a helper like that in Gunma too. Under such circumstances, I believe that discovering Medicare gave me the hope to live and live as a family with my children.
This time, for the first time in Gunma Prefecture, I was able to use a long-term overnight stay service. I hope that more people will be aware of this current situation and that more families will be able to live their lives with hope and smiles like ours.

Message from Representative Director Yuji Mori
Obtaining a decision from the government to provide long-term nighttime in-home care (disability welfare services) is a very high hurdle, and it is difficult for municipalities to do so without precedent.
In the municipalities that have been approved for this funding, home visits were also carried out, where they came to see and understand the current state of medical care at home, and learned about the current situation of children with disabilities and their families. I feel that at the examination committee within the government that decides on payment, the correct current situation was provided by the person in charge, and the necessity of the service was recognized as being appropriate, leading to the decision to provide payment.

We hope that this service will provide a breathing space for children in need of medical care and their families, and help the whole family live a better life.
We are pleased that we were able to alleviate some of the burden on families with children requiring medical care and provide a place where children can spend their time with peace of mind.

We hope that each local government will consider this first case and that it will be implemented in many local governments, and that children in medical care who are receiving medical care while cutting back on their sleep time will be able to show that this kind of service exists. We hope that this will be an opportunity for parents to learn about this.
