Masue has developed a step-by-step, contextually sensitive approach to changing attitudes and values about nursing care. She has created the broadly utilized “Shinkou-Kai” model for affordable private nursing homes which provides comfortable yet affordable housing options for Japanese elderly, while employing non-Japanese caregivers traditionally shunted by society. Through the unique model Masue has created, she has worked toward the inclusion of the marginalized as full economic citizens.
