The paper provides a preference evaluation for elderly-care services, based on a conjoint survey and a rational-choice framework. For the empirical section, we conducted a conjoint survey with Japanese respondents to estimate preferences of elderly-care services. Our findings show that room sharing is the most important for both demand and consumer surplus, and it is justified to assist households in using elderly-care facilities at a middle distance with additional health-care services.
