Keita Komori | Nurse

Born in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan in 1979. After graduating from junior high school, he worked as a construction worker when his colleague was involved in a traffic accident. Feeling helpless and unable to do anything about it, he decided to do something to help others and became a nurse inspired by encounters at work and a part-time high school. After working in the emergency ward of a university hospital, he became a visiting nurse because he felt a need for a specialist to support people before they came to the hospital. In 2016, he established Uchiet Inc. in Okazaki, Aichi. Currently, he visits users’ homes as a visiting nurse to face the end of their lives while running a medical care business. He is also a part-time lecturer at a graduate school of nursing and a vocational school to expand the possibilities of nurses.
