According to the 2015 WHO’s report, the number of elderly people is increasing and will keep on rising : the proportion of the world’s population aged over 60 will nearly double, from 12% today to 22% in 2050. Nowadays, the housing offer for the elderly does not fit the expectations of this age group.
Structures will have to adapt to the aspirations, needs and desires of the new generation of elderly. We have to re-think current care homes.
Thanks to the tool AD-PA has developed (Citoyennage – give the floor to the elderly) and based on a transnational cooperation, our project aims at finding new ways of designing housing with new services and products, co-designed with the target group.
Development of alternative structures conciliate advantages of care home and home care. We aim to build innovative accompaniment modalities for the elderly.
New models of housing for the elderly (it can be both seniors’ residences and grouped settlements for example) will take into account the target group needs while being economically viable.
