Daily Life Support Services for Single Parent Families

Sending child Pre-school Elementary school students

When a single-parent family or a widow/widower needs:
   (1) temporary daily living support such as help with housework or childcare due to job hunting, temporary illness (excluding infectious diseases), accidents, having to attend ceremonial occasions or school events, or  
   (2) childcare services (for children from infancy through elementary school age) due to overtime work hours, 
a Family Life Support worker (a qualified home helper who has completed childcare support training and is registered with the Single Parent Family Support Center) is dispatched to the home. As a rule, in both situations (1) and (2), this service can be used up to 20 times a year.
