“I don’t let dementia end your life.”

A 21-year-old man, Kei Omori, is a rookie certified care worker. Not knowing what he wanted to do in his life after finishing high school, Kei entered a technical school for care work without giving much thought to it. After graduating the school, Kei found his first job at a small-scale multi-functional facility in the suburb. His days were frustrating as Kei was having a difficult time communicating with the elderly people with dementia, and now he was assigned as the main caregiver for a 79-year-old woman with dementia, Keiko Hoshikawa. Through trial and error, and with the support from his experienced colleagues, Kei was gradually developing a stronger bond with Keiko. He was beginning to get serious about his profession in caregiving, which he started “just because” . . .
