Abstract

With the strong growth of the elderly population expected in the coming years, it is important to be prepared to take care of more elderly people suffering from loss of autonomy or loneliness. To do so, we must develop housing solutions that meet their expectations and needs while promoting their well-being to the maximum.

This research paper aims to explore if the new submerged housing solution called “shared accommodation”, resembling a colocation for elderly people with a daily accompaniment, may bring an improvement in terms of Well-being in the life of elderly people. This study will compare “Shared Accommodations” and “EHPAD” (Residential establishment for dependent elderly people), in terms of well-being and give some recommendations. The method used for this conceptual paper is based on literature reviews or secondary data from articles, online websites, news, journals, and books. This study will investigate previous research papers on the topics of elderly: demography, service needs, problems encountered, accommodations and well-being. The findings have shown that improving the well-being of our seniors will have an impact on their mental and physical health as well as on their autonomy and life expectancy. Therefore, the study will propose some recommendations in order to improve well-being in specialized housing for the elderly.

Keywords: Elderly people, Shared accommodations, EHPAD (Residential establishment for dependent elderly people).
