[Certified NPO corporation Florence]
With the support from the Seiyu, Murakami Foundation, and individual donors, service is available on September 1, 2019. ………………………………………………………………………………………… As the only company in the country that has 15 years of experience in childcare specialized childcare specialties and five years of experience in childcare for disabled children, the certified NPO corporation Florence is now the first in Japan to sit by a nurse specializing in medical care children. The business “Medical Caresitter Nancy” will start on September 1, 2019.
Florence provides long-term childcare for medical care children and supports the continuation of work by parents The first business in Japan “Children’s Day Nursery Helen for Disabled Children” (2014-), “A Child Visiting Daycare for Children with Disabled Children” (2015) We managed …) and, along with the living of parents and children with a disability more than 100 families in Tokyo so far. In addition, we sent children of Helen and Annie who became school age to special support school. Through management of child with a disability child care business,
● Mums who are not working take care without rest for a few minutes
● There is an overwhelming shortage of school facilities that accept medical care children
● There are only 6 hours a week for children with disabilities who can not attend special needs schools As a result, we have learned about various issues related to parents and children with disabilities that can not be covered only by the childcare business. We will launch a new business called Medical Caresitter Nancy to meet the needs of parents’ respite (temporary rest) who can not keep their eyes on their children, and medical care children of school age.
Using a scheme of visiting nursing and combining multiple medical and welfare systems, we will start supporting families with disabled children. First, we will make a model case of 30 households in Tokyo one year after service, and respond to each household’s needs in a customized manner. At the same time, we will represent the needs of medical care children and their families that are expected to be tens of thousands across the country, and promote advocacy activities to spread this model across the country. The first year was the investment year, and funds of 20 million yen were needed for nurse recruitment and training, and the back office operation system. Received a donation from Seiyu Co., Ltd. “FY1919 Social Contribution Activities Support Program” and Murakami Foundation, Asari, Saori Henri (ANRI representative partner), Matsumoto Atsushi (Laksul Co., Ltd. president and CEO) In addition, we will inform you that the prospect of business start has come.

Calculated according to the usage fee and the provisions of the law. In addition, the burden upper limit monthly amount according to income is set, and the burden does not occur more than that regardless of the amount of services used in one month (separate transportation expenses separately). With the development of advanced medical care in the perinatal period, Japan is the country with the world’s lowest level of infant mortality that can save lives even if it is produced at 500 g. On the other hand, children with disabilities living with medical care and devices such as gastric fistula and aspirates and ventilators have doubled in the last 10 years to approximately 18,000 people in Japan. Among parents who care for children with medical care, most mothers have quit their jobs and are working around the clock for 24 hours.
Most medical care children are discharged from NICU in a few months to about a year and transition to home care. On the other hand, there is an overwhelming shortage of infrastructure for parents’ respite care (support to allow caregivers to rest or refresh by temporarily replacing the care they are taking). Attention is focused on the physical and mental burden that is brought to the family who takes medical care without a break. The University of Tokyo is aiming to clarify the respite care utilization status and quality of life of parents of children who require medical care at home. Conducted a survey on (Source: The University of Tokyo, Department of Family Nursing, Upper Beppu Laboratory “Study on Parents’ Respite and Quality of Life of Children and Students Who Need Medical Care”)

※ About QOL (quality of life) In this survey, about the QOL related to the health of the parents, physical (vigor, fatigue, pain etc), mental (concentration, depression etc), social health (at home and work problems, social relations etc) We used a common adult survey scale to measure the three aspects of The higher the score, the better the health.
■ Main parenter’s respite situation (last week from survey) 30.1% of respondents who answered that “the respite time during public service use is 0 hours” over the past week of the primary caregiver. Those who answered that “the time when they could leave the rest to another family for 0 hours” was the most frequent response with 36.5%, and the result showed that the primary carer had difficulty finding respite time. On the other hand, parents who had respite time on average of 2 hours or more per day were significantly higher in social health than those on average of less than 2 hours per day.

Mr. Atsushi Murakami, Representative Director, Murakami Foundation Comment
After the foundation was established, the first thing I gave was to support the opening of Florence’s nursery school for children with disabilities, Helen Kyodoen. When I came to Helen several times and came to think about the next step of the children I met, I received a story about the opening of this Nancy business. We sincerely hope that children will have many learning opportunities and that parents will have little or no room for their minds.
