Assisted living facilities & shared housing
Our senior residences welcome seniors who want to live in a warm environment and benefit from services that simplify their lives.
Korian and Serge & Jérémie Trigano are shaking up the codes of senior living with Casa Barbara, a new kind of place to live, located in the heart of Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine). A unique place where the pleasures of meeting and sharing, culture and gastronomy, creativity and comfort, intimacy and welcome, leisure and exchange converge and merge.
For Serge Trigano, Casa Barbara is all the riches of a fulfilled life in one place:
Casa Barbara" means protecting your health first and foremost, meeting people, because there is no such thing as solitude, living in flats designed by the talented decorator Sandra Benhamou and adapted to your tastes and desires. It means enjoying meals created by the renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire. It means making your dreams come true because you finally have the time, continuing to learn, passing on knowledge, receiving your grandchildren in a festive atmosphere and giving even more meaning to this stage of your life. And then simply enjoy yourself because after a life of hard work, constraints and stress, it's time to have a good time.
Why come to Casa Barbara ?
More than a place, Casa Barbara offers a living experience that exists nowhere else, around strong markers.
It is beautiful... and warm, like a country house
Serge & Jérémie Trigano and Korian have entrusted the decoration to the architect Sandra Benhamou. The interior decoration is designed with cheerful colours, soft tones, natural fibres and woodwork.
It's friendly... John and Alex, Casa's secret weapon
A friendly and caring atmosphere, a radically new customer experience and a disruptive relationship code: Casa Barbara is a pioneer, with a host couple. John and Alex and their children - not to mention their dog - live on site.
It's good... Barbara's, the restaurant by Pierre Gagnaire
Enchantment, joie de vivre and pleasure are also a matter of the table at Casa Barbara.
You can eat meals imagined by Pierre Gagnaire, starred chef, and concocted by the chef Olfa Labidi. A cuisine that respects seasonal products and is concerned with giving pleasure through balanced and gourmet dishes.
Connections, events, joy... The recipe for everyday life, open to the world.
The programme is built for and by the inhabitants of the Casa, according to their tastes, their desires and why not their dreams.
With Casa Barbara, Korian is continuing its strategy of innovation to meet the new needs and expectations of independent Baby Boomers who want to lead an active and socially connected life.
"Thanks to the new Casa Barbara brand and the collaboration with Serge and Jérémie Trigano and Pierre Gagnaire, we are continuing to offer innovative services that meet the new expectations of seniors from the baby boomer generation, while further asserting our desire to change the way we look at this period of our lives. We are reinventing the codes of senior living to create a place where people come for pleasure above all", says Sophie Boissard, Managing Director of the Korian group.
In France, the concept will be deployed progressively in city centres, with another Casa Barbara scheduled to open in Nice in early 2023. Casa Barbara should also be established in other European countries where Korian is present.
Why live with us?
Korian has leveraged all its expertise in supporting seniors to develop a range of living spaces and housing options that allow seniors to maintain their autonomy and enjoy a lifestyle that focuses on freedom of choice and prevention. Korian provides secure, comfortable and spacious apartments (50 m² on average) that can be adapted to fit residents’ needs. All our assisted living facilities have shared areas that can be privatised for visits, and a garden. Each facility has its own range of services from which residents can pick and choose, including meals, activities, laundry services and spa pools. These services provide comfort and convenience and help to ensure residents’ peace of mind, while creating a friendly and sociable atmosphere. Most of our 60 facilities are also able to provide medical and nursing supervision upon request, as they are always within easy reach of our home care services or one of our long-term care nursing homes.
Shared housing for seniors in France
Since 2018, through our subsidiary Ages & Vie we offer shared housing solutions for seniors, specifically designed for rural, suburban, and urban areas.
How does it work?
This alternative housing concept allows up to eight seniors to live together as normally as possible with the support of three care assistants, some of whom live on-site with their own family.
These single-storey, ground-level homes include a private living area with its own bathroom for each resident, and common areas such as a lounge, a dining room, and a kitchen, so that residents can share meals, socialise, and enjoy leisure activities together.
These shared homes are ideal for individuals who are fairly autonomous or with diminishing autonomy, and who can no longer or do not wish to live alone in their home. They provide an alternative non-medical housing solution for those who are not interested in a traditional nursing home.
First established in the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region, the Ages & Vie network now counts 70 shared homes in eight French departments.
In 2020, seven new shared homes began welcoming residents in the French cities of Beure, Saint-Léger-sur-Dheune, Luzy, Le Deschaux, and Marmagne, and two outside the Bourgogne Franche Comté region in Plainfaing and Baccarat.
The size of this network will double by early 2022.
300 shared homes for seniors in France by 2024
Three hundred shared homes for seniors will be built in France between now and 2024, providing more than 2,400 bedrooms for up to 3,000 seniors and directly creating more than 1,500 jobs.
Today Korian is proud to operate 155 shared homes and assisted living facilities in Europe.
