Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

The « Home Puppets » project is part of the cultural offer objective, for seniors who are losing their autonomy. It aims to create an adapted form to these spaces (senior’s homes) by offering playtime with the support of the homeworkers. It’s a concerted project, on one hand with the cultural center the Bief and on the other hand the CLIC Livradois Forez, coordination association in charge of senior who are losing their autonomy and which carries a MAIA, labelled method by the ARS for the cares of the seniors with loss of autonomy and the Department Council of the Puy-de-Dôme with the circumscription of the medical and social action. This project had the ambition to both bring a new playtime at home and makes the professional homeworkers aware of the situation. It implies an indentification of the people, in consultation with the professionals and so a time of sensitization and mediation to these 2 publics.
