Amidst controversy, casino-style day care center a favourite among Japanese elderly

This sounds like a great idea to me and i can think of a lot of worse ways to spend your days. When i get into my retirement years, they can send me there and i would be a very happy man

That's how it works in Japan. So they care for their elders. If such a place exists in most cities It would be a good thing for the elderly who love games in casino. It would still be an extra joy before they to leave this life. 1 Day for 100 $ with 90% paid by the insurance system is an excellent thing for them.

Research has consistently shown that keeping the mind active is very important to stave off dementia, memory loss, and depression in the elderly. But it has to new activity which forces the mind to continue to build new connections. So if an older person picks up some gambling games later in life and starts learning their intricacies, that should help. Many older people traditionally look down on video games, but picking them up and doing puzzle games later in life is very good for them.
You can't do the same old thing, though. That's the important point. Besides, hardcore gamblers probably wouldn't be happy playing all day for "play money".

I like to hear that government pays 90% of day care center charge, thos makes so much easier to use such centers, in our country there is no such systems and many people can only use cheapest centers which are government owners and quality is,noy so good like with private centers

I do not quite understand how gambling is connected with drug addicts ??? .... ok with the crime connection I can still trace but here with the drug connection is definitely not .... and for the elderly the casino is a good occupation

Casinos has always been an amusement for the elderly people.
And you can say that most of them getting obsessed with the slots Smile

Not a bad thing, if they are not getting addicted to it.
They need variety in their lives with any possible way Smile

I've been living in Japan for several years but I've never known such an establishment exists until I read this thread today. It looks like a nice retirement place.

Here's a brief inside look at the center.

What a great idea. Turn day care or rest homes into casinos. There would no longer be a social care funding issue in the U.K. Open up the community rooms to locals who can pay to come and play poker or slots with the oldies and that will in turn pay for part of the costs of the care centre. Govt can even tax it all and make even more money for crazy things like..... more casino day care centres.

day care centers are great i guess, assuming they are well managed and you're in a good company with dudes and dudettes who more or less are having nice time hanging out doing stuff, but gambling... not sure this is such a great idea.

Ive worked in my local one and retirement villages out of town put on a bus trip once a week for them to come in for lunch Big Smile
Plus when you have a go on the slots or accumulate a point on your VIP card you can get free coffee/tea and so for some of them its a day out

One would think they could open a popular retirement center only with a couple decks, some pachinko machine and go/mahjong tables...

A recent study suggests that life expectancy in some developed countries will exceed 90 years in coming decades. That's a significant increase in lifespan. It will be consequently difficult for insurance companies to evaluate longevity risk.
