  • The Japanese elderly welfare policy has focused on facility policy for the aged and preventive care service for healthy elderly people. This paper has conducted a comparative analysis on Geriatric Gealth Services Facility and Special Nursing Home for the Elderly. For this, each service function has been divided into six categories; daily life / nursing and caring / medical service / management / supply / miscellaneous. Then the change in real structure by category has been analyzed through a plan analysis on case facilities. In the Geriatric Health Services Facility, the biggest change was observed in 'livelihood' among six categories. In the Special Nursing Home for the Elderly, 'the nursing and care parts' and 'medical service part' are decreased since 1999. At that time, the facilities started to be individualized and divided into a unit. To pursue home-like care instead of unit care, there was a change in construction planning to help the aged with dementia live a self-sufficient life.
