    Abstract

    In this study, we conducted a questionnaire survey to understand requirements related to encouraging participation in mutual interchanges for the elderly, known as "salon activities". Our subjects are middle-Aged and elderly residents of apartment complexes. Findings were obtained using a causal model via SEM. In determining salon activities, such as in meetings, it's effective to appeal to the necessity of "preparation for disasters and old age." During the activities, it's effective to examine policies that foster participation in "salon activities that give purpose and a sense of culture" related to daily life. It's important to suggest participation before aging progresses.
