Postal workers to deliver senior services under Japan tie-up

Japan Post's post offices will be employed in providing monitoring services to the elderly.

TOKYO -- The Japan Post Holdings group is teaming up with several private-sector companies to provide lifestyle support services for the nation's growing ranks of seniors, dovetailing with the government's desire to promote aging in place.

Mail services unit Japan Post and Japan Post Insurance will hold a majority stake in a new joint venture. NTT Docomo, IBM Japan, Dai-ichi Life Holdings, advertising giant Dentsu, and security companies Secom and Sohgo Security Services will round out the list of shareholders. Japan Post will offer its national network extending into even sparsely populated areas, while the corporate partners will provide know-how.
