Accelerating the development of shared housing for seniors
Banque des Territoires, Crédit Agricole Assurances and the Korian group announce a partnership to develop Ages&Vie shared housing for seniors throughout France. This form of inclusive housing is an intermediary between home support and nursing homes. The partnership signed today will allow, by 2024, the launch of 300 shared housing throughout France, offering 3,000 places for accommodation.

Ages&Vie shared homes are organized around a common living space, where residents meet to share meals and selected moments of conviviality. They are helped in their daily lives by life assistants, some of whom live on site. Each of the eight residents also has a private space, which they can furnish and decorate according to their tastes.
"By contributing to the development of a new type of housing for seniors, Banque des Territoires is fully fulfilling its mission to serve the most inclusive territories. With a population over 75 years of age that will increase by more than 70% by 2060, local authorities, particularly those located in rural areas, are being asked to propose solutions that will allow seniors to age in complete serenity," says Olicier Sichel, Director of Banque des Territoires.
The existing housing park has 50 residences in 30 different municipalities in the Burgundy Franche-Comté region. They are operated by the Franche-Comté company Ages&Vie, created in 2008 by Nicolas Perrette, Simon Vouillot and Thierry Morel and of which the Korian group became the main shareholder in 2018.

"Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to significantly accelerate the pace of development of Ages&Vie shared homes and respond in a concrete way to the needs expressed by municipalities in rural and peri-urban areas," says Sophie Boissard, Korian Group’s CEO.
"As a major player in the field of health and well-being, Crédit Agricole Assurances is proud of this partnership, which will enable it to support seniors in the regions. Located in the regions through its 39 Regional Banks, the Crédit Agricole Group plays a key role in their development and maintains strong local links with its customers, supporting them in all aspects of their lives, including old age," said Frédéric Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of Crédit Agricole Assurances.
