Mie Ohshiro, 100 years old and slightly deaf, listens intently as 28-year-old nursing home aid Satoru Yamanoha repeats a question posted by a visitor about this Naga City Okinawa day care facility. "I enjoy it because I have lots of friends here," she says, "and my son and his wife also use this place." Mie lives with her second son and his family but comes to the center two or three times a week for a traditional Okinawan lunch, physical therapy, and companionship.
