This project aims at fighting the early institutionalisation of the elderly, ensuring their quality of life and keeping them at home, with their families and neighbours. It is a differentiated home care service, based on a programme that goes beyond satisfying basic needs (hygiene and providing meals). The elderly are visited at their homes and at parish councils by a multidisciplinary team that is ready to address several needs with quality and preventive care (psychologists, socio-cultural animators, occupational therapists, geriatricians), thus ensuring that they are afforded quality of life in their own homes.
