The Kinjo University Faculty of Nursing has been running a project since 2017 as part of its community collaboration activities to help Hakusanroku residents maintain good health. First, we opened the Mountain Health Care Room for community salon participants and conducted a basic survey of Hakusanroku healthcare supporters and community residents. We then provided health education and recreational activities to help older adults maintain good health. Since 2020, we have been unable to hold community activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and have been attempting to determine the day-to-day circumstances of residents. In addition to in-person community activities, there is a need for new initiatives such as online activities to help people connect and help older adults living in Hakusanroku to maintain good health.
