Independent living of an elderly person with non-family, community
support, and consequent prevention of lonely death: A case of Soma
Idobata-Nagaya after the 2011 Fukushima disaster
AbstractThe construction of apartment buildings after the disaster and the way
of living there fostered the social capital of the original area.
Community formation made it possible for elderly people living alone to
respond to emergencies and prevent lonely death. It can be proposed to
the future super-aging society.
