    Abstract

    Aging causes a global challenge in our society. While ICT and robotics are expected as potential solutions toward sustainable care, the technology integration process in elderly-care service systems is cumbersome, especially in the international context. This study focuses on facility care services in Japan and Finland. Through the interview with managers of facility care services in both countries, this work clarified their expectation toward technologies and the barriers for technology integration.
