POLITICS – Seniors take center stage. In the midst of a scandal after the terrible revelations about the daily life of residents of the EHPAD of the Orpea groupthe care of the elderly with loss of autonomy is invited into the presidential campaign.

By the very admission of the government spokesman, the revelations made in the book The Gravediggers, by journalist Victor Castanet “are absolutely revolting”. The government has promised to investigate to confirm the veracity of the facts, denied by the group, and the president of the National Assembly LREM Richard Ferrand pleaded to “favor establishments which are non-profit”. But this displayed goodwill did not make us forget the never-ending projects of Macron’s five-year term on the subject.

The new applicants to the Élysée did not fail to call them back. And they take the opportunity to reveal or outline their measures for the elderly and/or those with a loss of autonomy. Some are common to several candidates, such as salary increases or staff increases. Others advocate nursing homes 100% public and still others prefer to rely on caregivers or home help. A brief overview.

Fabien Roussel wants EHPADs reviewed and corrected

Fabien Roussel intends to “ensure the autonomy of our seniors.” And to get there, the PCF candidate is counting on the EHPADs, reviewed and improved: investment plan to modernize them, creation of 300,000 jobs over three years, salary increases, application of the “one carer for one resident” principle… He wishes to transform the financing of these establishments to arrive at “100% of non-profit EHPADs”. To a lesser extent, it also intends to develop home help, with the creation of 100,000 jobs and a “national and territorialized service for assistance with autonomy”.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon defends “a public dependency service”

Jean-Luc Mélenchon has remained rather discreet for the moment on his program for the autonomy of seniors. However, the position is clear: we must “build a public dependency service to help seniors stay at home”. This requires the creation of thousands of jobs (at least 210,000 in nursing homes), and the upgrading of statuses and salaries. The Insoumis also want to ban “lucrative private EHPADs”, such as those of the Orpéa group. “We don’t make money on people’s addiction”, hammer the rebellious deputies, aligned on this point with the Communists.

Anne Hidalgo wants more daily integration

Anne Hidaldo wants “a benevolent society towards the elderly”, with the support in “all public policies” of the notion of “aging well”. Its program unveiled in mid-January contains few details, but the PS candidate provides a “training and recruitment plan for old age professions” to better support and integrate people with loss of autonomy and their families. With regard to EHPADs, she wishes to “rethink them completely” with “a greater human presence” and campaigns for the revaluation of the personalized autonomy allowance, in EHPADs or at home.

Yannick Jadot and “well-treating practices”

Above all, Yannick Jadot wishes to “guarantee caring and human support for people with a loss of autonomy, whether they are at home, in private nursing homes or in public nursing homes.” An objective that involves upgrading the salaries and careers of those who support them, “increasing human resources” and upgrading the personalized autonomy allowance. He also promised to “limit the creation of new lucrative private EHPADs” which will have to respond to “ agreements of general interest objectives.”

Valérie Pécresse, supporter of home help

Valérie Pécresse places seniors in the “Family” section of her program. Above all, it is focusing on home care, with three out of four measures to facilitate it: development of home help services, doubling of the tax credit for personal service jobs and creation of a special status for family carers, with compensation and flexible working hours. Only one point directly influences the daily life of the elderly: the candidate LR wants to “reorganize the operation” of the reception establishments to improve the care of the residents.

Éric Zemmour, for an old age and autonomy law

The Reconquest candidate! has yet to reveal its ambitions for seniors. However, his spokesperson Antoine Diers, contacted by The HuffPost, pleaded for “a burst of humanity”. Éric Zemmour should thus set “three priorities for an old age and autonomy law” over 15 years: the identification of the needs of the elderly and the simplification of care procedures; the development of home care, with better remuneration for the health personnel concerned; and finally a “more rigorous control” of the host establishments, in particular by removing the ARS hitherto in charge of this aspect.

Marine Le Pen relies on “close caregivers”

Marine Le Pen will not reveal her program before February 5. But the president of the National Rally, however, has several proposals for health. In this program, a small part is specifically devoted to the elderly: the “increase in medical staff” and the increase in salaries in nursing homes, as well as the creation of a separate emergency department for faster care of elders. Next, the RN candidate is betting more on “close caregivers, essential links in the health system” whose status she wants to consolidate.
