Presentation

  • Context, issues : Because of their inadequate house, too isolated but also the remoteness of their families, several elderly people in Tilhouse (Hautes-Pyrénées, 223 inhabitants) had to go to Ehpad while they were not dependent. To avoid these rarely chosen situations, the municipality has acquired and built a large town house in shared housing. A family is housed upstairs to watch over the residents. 
  • Goals : - break the isolation of independent seniors
    - maintain the elderly in their village
    - create a space for intergenerational meetings in the heart of the village (exchanges with childminders and children in their care, organization of youth workcamp to develop the garden ...) 
  • Targeted audience : independent but isolated seniors 
  • Actions implemented : Collective and intergenerational home called La Marotte, including:
    - three studios from 25 to 36 m² and a shared space on the ground floor. Rent from 385 to 450 euros / month.
    - an apartment of 120 m2 upstairs, to receive a family who could help the elderly résidents if necessary. In return, reasonable monthly rent of 500 euros.
    - a furnished apartment of 60 m2 upstairs, to receive the families of residents, against a participation expenses (50 euros on weekends, package possible per week).
