Why we love it?

What we love about Etoilés&Solidaires is the innovative idea of breaking the isolation of our seniors by putting them in touch with gourmet chefs, thus creating surprising yet profoundly enriching encounters.

Challenge

ElderlyFood
SOCIAL CHALLENGES - Combating social isolation: 530,000 seniors were in a situation of social death in 2021, compared with 300,000 in 2017. 2 million seniors isolated from family and friendship circles in 2021, they were 900,000 in 2017.

INCLUSIVE CHALLENGES: given the social isolation of our seniors, they have become invisible. The idea is to "give them back their place" in today's society and create intergenerational links.

HEALTH CHALLENGES - Combating undernutrition: France is the 3rd country in Europe most affected by social isolation and undernutrition among the elderly. In the 65-75 age bracket, malnutrition affects 3 to 5% of the population. Over the age of 80, it is estimated that it reaches 30% of subjects, becoming a risk factor for hospitalization and loss of autonomy.

Solution

The aim of ÉTOILÉS & SOLIDAIRES is to:
- reinspire seniors to get out of their homes to go to restaurants. Getting moving helps maintain autonomy;
- restoring self-esteem: isolated seniors have regained a taste for getting ready before going to the restaurant (dressing, styling, hygiene care). Physical well-being naturally has an impact on morale;
- create social, local and intergenerational ties;
- reinspire seniors to eat healthily and, in so doing, combat undernutrition. 

Offer restaurant meals for our isolated grandparents and their carers!
In this month of March, when March 4 was Grandmother's Day, here is a short text written by Marie GUILLOIS, Founder of ETOILÉS & SOLIDAIRES. 

😍 Happy Grandmother's Day to all Grandmothers!
💙 To Grandmothers by descent or adoption...
💙 To the Grandmothers who guide us, pass on, advise...
💙 To the Grandmothers who carry us with their tenderness and affection...
💙 To the Grandmothers who watch over us from far or near...
✨ You are our treasures.

👩🏻‍🦳👨🏻‍🦳 More than 8251 seniors have benefited from our solidary and gastronomic initiatives in 5 years through our STARS AND SOLIDARIES initiatives :

🍽 La Table de nos Aînés X Salariés : Seniors and employees of a company take part in an intergenerational tablée at a restaurant in their geographical area.
🍽 Invitez un Aîné à Déjeuner (Invite an Elder to Lunch): an isolated elderly duo and healthcare professional or family caregiver or young person in an intergenerational shared apartment share a lunch in a restaurant in their geographical area. 

🙌 The aims of these initiatives: 
- to combat social isolation and undernutrition; 
- to help change the way society looks at aging;
- to maintain seniors' independence;
- to foster intergenerational links between seniors and young people in shared accommodation, family carers and healthcare professionals. 

For our isolated seniors, our adoptive grandparents - we will continue ever further to reintegrate them into the 💙 of our society. 

🇫🇷 Projects for 2024:
📍develop our initiatives - the Table de nos Aînés, Invitez un Aîné à Déjeuner in new regions;
📍incite more companies to participate in our "Tables de nos Aînés x Salariés".
