Foundation Thought Representative Director Mori Matsukubo (松久保道徳)

My previous job was at a medical institution in the Nishijin area. Nishijin-ori, a traditional industry in Kyoto, is supported by workers called Debata and Chimbata who place looms at home to weave textiles. I saw many people who hurt their necks and lower back by working in the same posture for a long time even in the cold winter. Many patients suffered from hypertension because they lived a salty lunch such as rice, pickles and miso soup to gain working time. I also treated occupational diseases that get sick by working. Patients who suffer from cerebrovascular disorders such as cerebral hemorrhage by inhaling carbon disulfide gas generated in the process of manufacturing chemical fibers, and using a vibration tool called a chainsaw causes pale fingers, numbness and pain. They were forestry workers with pallor disease. Through these experiences where work and life cause illness and disability, when starting a long-term care business, I decided that I would like to do the work that is indispensable in the community and create a workplace where the staff can work comfortably.
