Initiatives Toward Growth in the Nursing Care Business

Aiming to protect the dignity of seniors through nursing care services and contribute to a society in which everyone can live comfortably and with peace of mind throughout their lives, the Sony Financial Group added the nursing care business to its operating portfolio in November 2013.
Sony Lifecare, established in April 2014 as a holding company to oversee the Group’s operations in the nursing care business, is promoting business expansion through the opening and operation of new nursing care homes by its subsidiaries, and through strategic alliances with other companies.
In the development of new nursing care homes, Lifecare Design, a Sony Lifecare subsidiary, opened SONARE Urawa in May 2017. This is the second facility under the SONARE brand of seniors housing with nursing care services. In addition, the company has started the development of projects for a third home and beyond.
Meanwhile, in July 2017, Sony Lifecare converted Yuuai Holdings Co., Ltd. (YHD) to a wholly owned subsidiary. YHD is involved in the operation of Hanakotoba-brand nursing care homes and other businessess under its umbrella. Through the consolidation of YHD, which already operates 27 locations with around 1,400 rooms in total, Sony Lifecare will seek to establish a presence in the nursing care services market, make inroads into the affordable price range where latent demand is extensive, and effectively utilize know-how and management resources, such as personnel in developing nursing care homes.
Sony Lifecare is keen to continue efforts to build and expand its business base by pushing ahead on the establishment of new nursing care homes and forming strategic alliances.
