“We did what we said, that is to say respect the roadmap announced last year,” says the president of the Bois Joli association, which manages thenursing home of the same name to Big-Sales (Seine-Maritime). Philippe Legois during the general meeting which took place mid-June.
Animation project for each resident
Indeed, an animation manager has been recruited. At the beginning of 2022, it presented a complete animation project for each resident, structuring the company through a functional organization chart based on 3 poles: administrative, care and animation.
Among the novelties which should arrive, a website which will be consultable by all. In addition, a social life council made up of residents, families of residents and staff representatives has been reinstated.
And the meetings of the social and economic council (CSE) with staff representatives have restarted since July 2021. Not to mention the participation in the study of the nursing home rehabilitation project.
On the personal side, four contracts were made permanent and several training courses offered. In particular in IT for the creation of the website, in care reserved for nurses for the healing of wounds and in animation to operate the equipment “snoezelen” (controlled multisensory simulation).
Investments were made in 2021 to improve residents’ living conditions and replace obsolete equipment. Replacement of chairs and tables in the restaurant for €30,570, purchase of a touch screen for entertainment for €22,770, a patient call system for €35,451, a hot plate in the kitchen for 8 €839 and computer equipment for €7,777.
However, the president of the association calls for caution on the financial side.
2022 is going to be a very difficult year financially. Loads will increase appropriately. Current revenue and endowments will not follow and exceptional revenue and endowments will become rarer.
But this does not slow down the ambitions of the association. “We plan to acquire a second-hand vehicle to transport people with reduced mobility, which should be largely financed by the Department,” says Philippe Legois.
