Retirement homes for highly dependent people - EHPAD

The Needs

For highly dependent individuals, no longer able to safely stay at home, or needing special assistance with social bonding.



Caring for vital needs linked to dependency, preventing people from staying at home any longer.



EHPAD in Le Havre

EHPAD 93 is dedicated in priority to the welfare of the population and retired low-income workers, either couples or single.

Among them special attention is paid to ageing migrants. Therefore, this organization is 100% financed by the national social assistance system. In order to maintain social bonding, partnerships are being initiated with administrative but also civil organizations to develop links between generations, with the community and the activities that are provided by local authorities.


Ms M. is 84 years old. After the death of her husband, she had been living in her apartment, taken care of by her son, but then he suddenly died. Ms M needs constant intensive social and medical nursing. The assistance provided by the unit is not enough. She needs to enter a retirement home, despite the limits of her husband’s pension. Her needs can only be met by a residence such as the one in Le Havre.
