The Association for the Creation and Experimentation of Innovation Solutions for the Elderly
(ACEP) has started its work in 1981. Today, they offer global services to the aging population of Roissy en Brie, in the Greater Paris Region.
The nursing home Le Patio is a private non-profit facility with a capacity of 193 beds, including 3 temporary accommodation beds and 12 memory care beds. All 193 beds are eligible for social assistance for people with limited ressources. The residents suffering from Alzheimer disease or memory alterations benefit from an innovative service promoted in the National Alzheimer plan: an internal day care service (PASA). During the day, selected patients can go to this enclosed unit and enjoy targeted activities designed to support their memory and lower any behavioral disorder.
The association is also active to support Elderly people at home: they manage an Alzheimer day care center with 10 places and offer home care to 55 local residents. The Sport Coachs of the association offer sessions at home and in collective, setting to maintain the physical wellness of the population.
The use of technology to empower the Elderly residents and improve care is very present, as well with eConsultations and TeleHealth on site as with social robots such as Paro, or through a software dedicated to the relationship with the families and friends.
