Home Medical Care Information
Shibuya Medical Association engages actively in home medical care aiming to establish a community comprehensive care system. We hope our ward residents can receive high quality medical and nursing care in their own homes without stress. To this end, we work closely with the Shibuya Ward government, dental and pharmacists’ associations, and a variety of other professionals providing home medical and nursing care services. For inquiries about medical institutions that provide home medical care, visiting nursing stations and nursing care offices near you, or for general questions about home medical care, please contact the Shibuya Ward Home Medical Care Consultation Desk.
