Every year since 2011, “Dessine-Moi Mon Répit” organizes trips for dependant seniors. They have two goals: to let them enjoy a vacation and give their caregivers a break.
In connection with a network of facilities and gerontology services, “Dessine-Moi Mon Répit” can offer vacations to seniors with severe disabilities. Surrounded by healthcare professionals and trained volunteers, they can participate in various activities, including memory-building workshops, exercise classes, cultural visits, spa treatments, relaxation sessions, etc.
The trips also give the most isolated people an opportunity to build a social network by prolonging their new relationships afterwards (visits and interaction with families).
The vacations organized in 2015 received funding from the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah.
