The population aging rate is increasing annually in Japan and Finland. To support and sustain the elderly nursing-care services, use of new technologies such as robotic devices and IT-based system is more active than before. And, we considered that the it is necessary to internationally understand the expectations for and problems for the future nursing-care services and global technology development. In this context, we conducted the same inquiry survey in Japan and Finland, and aimed to compare find international differences of attitudes regarding nursing-care services among countries. The authors found that Finnish active seniors wanted to live their home with home care service and were more acceptable to technologies than their Japanese counterparts.
