Policy and Concept
The birthrate is declining and the ratio of elderly people has been growing in recent years in Japan. It is expected that more than 30% of the total population will be over 65 years of age in 2025. Amid this situation, enhancing ideal final housing or nursing care and medical services are important social issues. Tokyo Tatemono Group places the Senior Business as the third pillar of business next to the Office Buildings Business and Residence Business.
With Tokyo Tatemono Senior Life Support at the core, we aim to offer a rich life through the integration of housing and services by providing housing services and nursing care for the elderly.
We also take care in building favorable relationships with residents living in the neighborhood from the planning stage and we strive to build an environment that people are able to live for a lifetime as a member of the local community.

Building Environments for Living a Unique Life Through Housing and Services
To expand the Residence Business for the elderly, the Tokyo Tatemono Group established Tokyo Tatemono Senior Life Support that develops and runs residences for elderly people with nursing care services in July 2014. The company runs 15 residences for elderly people with services* as of the end of 2017.
In the Grapes series of residences for elderly people with services that is growing under Tokyo Tatemono Senior Life Support, we are pursuing an environment where elderly people can live unique lives by providing housing performance and services to realize a lifestyle centered upon people.
- *Residences for elderly people with services are rental homes where people who require nursing care can live freely while using the nursing care services rather than paying an expensive admission fee. These residences are regulated by the Act on Securement of Stable Supply of Elderly Persons' Housing. 225,000 units are available as of December 31, 2017, and the supply continues to grow.
High-quality Living Unique to a Developer
The Grapes series also realizes the high-quality cultivated in the Brillia brand new condominium residence business in addition to offering a barrier-free environment. In addition to the one room units common to elderly residences, various room types up to a 2LDK are available depending on the property to provide a unique life suitable for each resident.
Furthermore, the living environment has been built for the ease of use by elderly people, such as the height settings for switches and other equipment and the adoption of easy-to-clean materials and dimensions.
Soft Services Based on Concierge Services
A concierge is always present throughout the day to work with in-home long-term care support services and medical institutions as well as provide optimal support tailored to each resident. Even if the level of nursing care required grows, we are able to provide services at the same level as a private retirement home.
In addition to the accessibility of living thanks to no expensive admission fee, residents can live comfortably in this residence as their final home thanks to a lifetime building lease that does not require the lease contract to be renewed.
Strengthening Nursing Care Functions
Care Like Co., Ltd., which conducts businesses to deploy human resources to nursing and elderly care, became part of the Tokyo Tatemono Group in April 2017.
With the advancement of an aging society in recent years, a lack of human resources related to nursing care is becoming a social issue. We are able to ensure stability of the necessary human resources after expanding the Senior Business of the Tokyo Tatemono Group through Life Care while providing even more hospitable and comprehensive services.
Life Care is also working to cultivate human resources in nursing care and widely deploys the human resources in nursing care to society with the aim of contributing to solutions to the challenge of an aging society.
