Korian’s Positive Care approach illustrated by immersive art installations
The social mission of the Korian Group, which is resolutely inclusive, is supported by a common culture based on our Positive Care approach: contributing to the quality of life on a daily basis of our patients, residents and their families, and our caregivers.
To mark the Korian Group 15th anniversary, Chief Executive Officer Sophie Boissard invited visual artist Véronique Le Mouël to immerse herself in daily life at the Group’s facilities alongside residents and patients.
The artist drew on this experience to create four joyful, colourful installations which reflect the Positive Care approach practised by the Korian caregiver community: alleviating suffering, getting people moving, and sharing both great and small events in the life of the Korian Home. These collaborative works will be unveiled at an event organised by Korian, on 7 February 2019. They will then tour the Group’s facilities in France and Europe.
"To mark our anniversary and to highlight the road travelled in terms of support and our philosophy of Positive Care, we wanted to take an artistic approach. This allows us to share in a sensitive and meaningful way the profound nature of the mission of Korian’s community of women and men, all committed and ready to act to provide the care and support that ensures well-being and quality of life for the most elderly, vulnerable people. These creations are faithful representations of our fundamental purpose, what sets us apart, our spirit, our community, and the way we do things." evokes Sophie Boissard, Korian Group’s Chief Executive Officer.
