With “At your side”, its new corporate project, Clariane confirms its strategic shift from old age to fragility. Its strategic priorities are based on the need to respond effectively to the key challenges facing our society.

Local healthcare, the management of vulnerability and chronic illnesses, and support for the elderly and dependent individuals are major and lasting challenges for our European societies.

A European pioneer in care and support for vulnerable people for over 20 years, Clariane contributes to meeting these challenges through its complementary areas of expertise, its commitment, and the strong values of the Group shared by its community of 60,000 employees. 

In 2016, Clariane embarked on a process to profoundly transform:

  • its activities: the Group is now pursuing its strategy to diversify and specialise its activities focusing on care homes, healthcare facilities and services, and alternative living solutions;
  • its impact: its pioneering involvement in ESG and its status as a purpose-led company have confirmed its social and environmental commitment; 
  • its human resources: Clariane “takes care of those who take care of others” and deploys an innovative human resources policy in terms of employment, training and skills development; 
  • the approach to care: thanks to “Positive Care”, an individualised therapeutic approach deployed throughout its network, a highly ambitious ISO 9001 quality certification, and a cross-cutting approach to innovation.

Key figures

  • In Europe, 45 million people aged 65 and over have one or two chronic diseases1 (Source: OECD - Health Statistics 2020, Focus on EU-28)
  • The number of people over the age of 65 in Europe will increase by 20% by 2030, when they will account for 24% of the population (one out of four people), compared with 21% (one out of five people) today2.  
  • The population aged 80 and over will double by 2050, reaching 10% of the total population3
  • 90% of French people, 86% of Germans and 82% of Spaniards want to age at home (Odoxa 2019 survey).

Developing synergies between our three pillars of activity

As the number of vulnerable people in Europe increases, so does the need to better accommodate them. To respond to everyone’s desire to take care of themselves throughout their lives, and then to age at home or somewhere they “feel at home”, Clariane is developing alternative models and expanding its range of services.
