To implement its autonomy policy, innovate and respond to the needs expressed by the residents of Yvelin, the Department relies on two important levers: the departmental agency AutonomY, dedicated to home support and “We need an observatory” which collects and responds to the needs of social and medical social services (ESMS) in terms of services, specialized offers and places.

Strengthening housing supply

Growing old at home in good conditions, in a safe environment is the desire of most French people and Ivelinois. Therefore, the Department is implementing numerous solutions to meet this demand through the Habiter Facile project to support housing adaptation.

For those who cannot – or do not want – to stay at home, the department voted to create 454 places over five years. AND creating 25 inclusive living environments by 2025, funded through co-living.

Autonomy also rhymes with innovation

In September 2024, the first inclusive village dedicated to people with cognitive impairment will open in Montigny-le-Bretonneux. The future center of the Anne de Gaulle Foundation, called AgorHa, will combine the two centers currently located in Milon-la-Chapelle and Versailles. A medical and social institution will appear in the village. 100 placements and one of the very first “medical and social laboratory of life” France, dedicated to mental retardation. The AgorHa project is supported by the Department of Yvelines, which finances most of it.

Following the health crisis, the Department and Agency of Autonomy mobilized the efforts of nursing homes by launching Project “Inno ESMS” which has since been awarded. The goal of the project is to maintain social connections and cognitive stimulation for residents of partner institutions by offering teleconsultation tools.
