FOCUS ON THE VIAGEVIE PROJECT
ViagéVie is a new care model for the elderly based on France’s life annuity system that allows people to remain in their homes after the sale of their property and receive monthly payments. Initiated in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur by the Caisse des Dépôts public bank, SOLIHA, and the La Poste group, ViagéVie is setting up a general interest program that allows older adults (house owners) to stay in their homes in good conditions thanks to a suite of care services that are provided. The program is financed by the income generated by the sale of their property through the life annuity system. When the property is finally vacated, it is put on the market through a separate program to encourage home ownership.
