Since 2008, Ages & Vie has been offering shared accommodation with support services for the elderly experiencing a loss of autonomy in their daily lives. In a safe and friendly environment, people who can no longer live alone in their own homes have the opportunity to live together in shared accommodation with 8 bedrooms. They benefit from the reassuring presence of care assistants 24 hours a day, providing personalised support (help getting up, going to bed, washing, housework, laundry, entertainment and home-cooked meals, etc.). Integrated into the life of its town or neighbourhood, an Ages & Vie home enables the elderly to remain close to their families or the place where they have always lived. In 2018, Âges et Vie joined the Clariane community, enabling it to develop this innovative model. Today, Âges et Vie has almost 1,500 people sharing 323 homes in 40 departments across France.
