Guest from Europe Soir, Yann Reboulleau, CEO of the Philogeris group specializing in the management of nursing homes, believes that today nothing justifies maintaining such a strict health protocol in retirement homes.

He is therefore asking the government to ease restrictions. 


He asks for a reduction in the health protocol in nursing homes.

While nearly 80% of the residents of the 17 retirement homes managed by the Philogeris group have received their first dose of vaccine against the coronavirus, Yann Reboulleau, CEO of the group, launches an appeal to the government on Europe Soir, Monday: it is necessary to loosen the noose in the Ephad.

According to him, "nothing more justifies" the strict restrictions of the health protocol currently in force in these establishments.

A difficult situation to live with

"Our roughly 1,000 residents find it difficult to understand why they would live in the same regime of restrictions they have suffered for almost a year, when almost 80% of them have been vaccinated", launches the CEO, being the echo of its residents.

A situation that is all the more difficult to live with "because this vaccine protects them from serious forms".

Time is therefore starting to be long for the patients of the Philogeris network, who will all be vaccinated by the first week of March, if we stick to the vaccination schedule.

"The elderly are patient, but they don't have much time left"

Without forgetting that no more source of contamination has appeared in the establishments of the network "since mid-January", affirms Yann Reboulleau.

And to remember that "the elderly are patient, but do not have much time."

This is what the residents report to him.

"They tell us that young people are impatient when they have life ahead of them, but we are patient when we no longer have it."
