The elderly revolution has begun.Korian Institute for Ageing Well
The Korian Institute for Ageing Well launches the first European barometer on Ageing Well. Its objective: to find out how elderly people today feel and monitor changes in this over time. The results of this first edition of the barometer shows the amplitude of the silent revolution under way.
In France, Korian has forged partnerships with a large number of organisations providing care or support for the elderly and their families. This proactive policy is producing rapid, tailor-made solutions.

Each year, the Korian Institute of Aging Well carries out studies on issues based around Aging Well, in order to develop knowledge about the challenges of aging and to change our view of elderly people.
Following several months’ trial in pilot homes, Korian is signing an exclusive partnership to provide its 550 European retirement home residents with a social network especially designed for them. The aim is to strengthen the social ties between residents, their close families and friends, and the establishment.

Korian’s ageing well institute, the Institut du Bien Vieillir, has published the first educational leaflet on LUDIM, a proven non-drug therapy that models the conditions for organizing play sessions for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. This leaflet is for the nursing staff and healthcare professionals concerned, as well as their assistants.
For the second year running, Korian has held a “weekend challenge” as part of the partnership it entered into in 2015 with the Innovation Factory, the leading digital innovation cluster in Paris.
Korian and the Korian Institut de Bien Vieillir (optimal aging institute) are launching an experiment aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of the first “flash activities” trolley (without drugs) for dealing with acute behavioural disorders. This study is in keeping with the broader use of non-drug therapies (NDT) for elderly people with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders in Korian’s nursing facilities. The first non-drug emergency trolley was deployed in 40 skilled nursing facilities for the elderly (known as EHPADs in France) for six months. In parallel, the Korian Institut du Bien Vieillir set up a study designed to evaluate the impact of the trolley’s use.
The new website presents Korian's entire range of 291 nursing homes and 77 post-acute and rehabilitation care clinics in France.
