Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

Creation of a multiprofessional paramedical center in a new building with accessibility standards and RT2012. Once the building phase is completed, the "ATHENA Center" will take care of the patients of the territory in pooled premises equipped with professional equipment (waiting room, consultation rooms, fitness room, meeting room, toilets), a gym and an outdoor rehabilitation and fitness course. The patients care path will be facilitated thanks to a shared multiprofessional information system corresponding to a digital platform in technical platform allowing the management of the structure, the coordination between professionals and the continuity of care.
The phase of identification of expectations and consultation with the patients, the inhabitants, the health professionals, the LRA and the local elected representatives made it possible to define this global concept in response to the needs of the territory of the Sisteron LAG Buëch. Indeed, in addition to the few existing structures, the lack of globalized care provision has led project partners to think about offering shared care services in consultation with economic actors who might be interested in becoming stakeholders knowing that the care project will revolve around the theme and the support dedicated to the falls of the elderly person (before / during / after) and disturbances of balance as well as prevention, information, training, etc. with the help of different practitioners.

- Population of the territory of the Sisteron-Buech LAG
Global cost (in Euros) : 147 429 €
