The resources available to help and promote Home Support

In creating its Foundation, the National Academy of Medicine wished to put at the service of society as a whole its unique capacity to bring together, on essential health and social issues and around the best French and international experts, all the political, medical, scientific, economic and associative stakeholders.

To fulfill its mission, the Academy of Medicine Foundation (FAM) has chosen to organize debates based on excellent scientific publications or communications, open to the general public (associations, NGOs, companies, patients) and the media, and directly relayed to public authorities, particularly members of parliament. In addition to their level, these debates are distinguished from other events of the same type by the benefit of the institutional status and the guarantees of credibility and ethics that are recognized at the National Academy of Medicine.

After the first cycle of conferences organized by the Foundation of the Academy of Medicine on the theme “Transforming the future of aging”, it seemed important to focus the rest of the discussions on “Aging at home”. This theme, linking citizenship and the home, appears to be extremely topical and important.

The recent revelations concerning the elderly in an institutional setting have prompted the Foundation of the Academy of Medicine to propose a series of 4 debates between care professionals and the general public, followed by a synthesis before the decision-making authorities of our country. The aim of these debates is to analyze the difficulties and limits of home care, and then to respond to them in an objective, constructive and ethically correct way in order to build together a better last period of life in a chosen and loved environment.

2nde session :The resources available to help and promote Home Support  

In support of the family carers, the home care professionals intervene by providing competence, support and availability. Everything is done to ensure that the system works as well as possible for the sick person and their family. All the professionals, GPs, nurses, care assistants, home helpers, meals on wheels and financial support should work together to make this happen in the best possible conditions. And yet, everything is far from perfect… Perhaps the circumstances are not optimal, information is not sufficiently shared, coordination is insufficient. The debate will serve to clarify these essential aspects.
