Helping together our isolated seniors 

The goal of our project is to break the isolation of seniors in the Sud-Ouest and Verdun (SOV) territory and create mutual aid networks.

Our Goal

The Ensemble Project is a collective co-construction resulting from the reflection of several partners worried about the harmful impacts (bereavement, loss of links, networks, mobility, autonomy, distress) of confinement among isolated and vulnerable seniors.

Scarves of Memory

“Les foulards de la Mémoire” is an assembly of eclectic works beautifully knitted, crocheted and embroidered (by more than 125 knitters and embroiderers, citizen volunteers), commemorating the 251 seniors of the Sud-Ouest and Verdun boroughs who sadly succumbed to COVID in the CHSLDs in our neighborhoods.

Art therapy

Organization of art therapy workshops (face-to-face and online) in four neighborhoods: Petite-Bourgogne, Saint-Henri, Ville-Émard-Côte-Saint-Paul and Verdun.

The goal is to break the isolation by connecting with others in a group context and by sharing a common project.

Our approach: Co-creation

Our approach is based on participatory design; a collaborative process where the synthesis of social and technological domains is essential. This design process is based on mutual learning and co-construction. The participatory design approach recognizes beneficiaries as active partners.
