La Réunion : un territoire spécifique en matière de prise en charge des personnes âgées dépendantes

Abstract : Reunion Island is a French overseas department and Ultra Peripheral European Region. Its demographic, social and economic characteristics match with the territory’s geography, as well as its physical features. Several elements (such as the distance separating the island from France and Europe, its exposure to seven of the eight major environmental hazards, the strong contrast between the coastal and the inland regions of the island) are to be considered when it comes to analysing key indicators like poverty rate, unemployment, and social inequality, which are amongst the highest in France. Therefore, the rapid ageing population on the island and the care for the elderly are challenges the public institutions have to tackle. However they are also an opportunity to promote innovative approaches, deeply rooted in territorial dynamics, and mindset. This communication therefore focuses on analysing these movements of constraints, as well as social and demographic opportunities, and the way it interacts within the territory with a view to enhancing institutional innovation.
