🌟 La Table de nos Aînés X Personnalité 
Once every 2 months, a personality (actor, singer, humorist, writer, journalist) comes to share his or her profession and also, to answer the seniors' questions.

🍽️ A big THANK YOU to Francois-Xavier MÉNAGE, TF1's great reporter for sharing his journalistic experiences around a beautiful intergenerational table at the Halle aux grains in Paris.

🧑🏻‍🦳👴🏻 Our dear elders were delighted to hear François-Xavier MÉNAGE talk about his job as a major reporter, and also to pass on innovative ideas for reinventing the TV news of "tomorrow". 

😉 Thanks to all the teams, especially, 
Mathieu MURATET for organizing these magnificent tablées, which the seniors remember with fondness every time.

Invite an Elder to Lunch in your region

Our initiative, Invitez un Aîné à Déjeuner is expanding in the regions: Hauts-de-France, Rhône-Alpes and Paris.

🍽Our concept: a duo of isolated seniors and healthcare professionals or young people in intergenerational flatshares or family carers share a gastronomic, complicit and convivial moment in a restaurant in their geographical area.

📍The objectives of this initiative: 

  • Incentivating seniors to get out of the house and visit restaurants. Getting moving helps maintain autonomy;
  • Giving seniors the desire to eat healthily, thus combating undernutrition;
  • Recovering 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;
  • Improving the home-care approach: offering a meal to senior-helper duos;
  • Favoring intergenerational or family ties between an isolated senior and a young person in an intergenerational shared apartment or family caregiver.

👨🏻‍🦳👩🏻‍🦳 Our beloved seniors were invited to visit the Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris (MAM) with the excellent guide-conférencier, SALVATORE TULIPANO.
- Intergenerational lunch at the FOREST restaurant where Chef Julien SEBBAG and his team regaled us with multiple starters, main courses, desserts as colorful as they were exquisite.

🎙 Testimonial from Cedric Aumonier - member and companion at the Table de nos Aînés :
"Wonderful convivial tasting moment with our seniors from the 12th arrondissement of Paris. After visiting the museum, we enjoyed succulent dishes to share, in the shade of a cool forest in the Forest restaurant, one of the Moma group's many remarkable addresses. Our favorite was the 3-chocolate cookies..."

🌟 A big thank you to Emilie Patou of MOMA GROUP PARIS and to Sonia Legros
of Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris for organizing this initiative that is at once, supportive, cultural and gastronomic.
