« Nous vieillirons ensemble ». Expérimenter l’intersectorialité

Abstract : This paper analyzes the results of an experiment entitled “Nous vieillirons ensemble” (“We will grow old together”) conducted in a rural part of France that has experienced an increase in the population of people over seventy-five years. It seeks to examine the contribution of an artistic and cultural project associated with home care services for the elderly on overcoming isolation. This cross-sector partnership project poses questions on how to maintain social ties for these dependent people. By producing new methods of cooperation in the area, it challenges the professional practices of both the caregivers and the artists involved in the project. Moreover, it helps to reconsider the objectives assigned to organizations in their consideration of the populations toward a greater individualization of services. Thus, it suggests looking at social ties not in terms of a deficiency for the elderly but as a continuum of practices and representations where the place given to the relationship must be reexamined in all professional practices.
