An ageing population is not limited to France but affects a large number of countries, both in Europe and beyond. In China, for example, those over 65 will account for about one-quarter of the population by 2050 (source: United Nations).
The senior living facilities:
a stepping stone towards internationalisation
Unlike France, where the government’s separation of the medico-social and the private sector has led to the emergence of the senior serviced residence concept, these countries have a limited number of housing solutions tailored to autonomous seniors.
It is therefore through the creation and operation of senior living facilities abroad that ÆGIDE has initiated an internationalisation of its business model. A movement that began with the opening of the first residences in Belgium (Auderghem, Antwerp and Leuven), Italy (Bergamo) and Mauritius, will continue over the next few years, most notably in Portugal, Germany and Asia.

Three priority geographical areas
The Group is capitalising on the strength of its concept and is forming partnerships to export its model of residences to three areas identified as priorities. ÆGIDE thus contributes to the export of French knowledge in the advanced age sector.
ÆGIDE intends to develop in this geographical area where needs are numerous, in particular in China, Thailand and Malaysia in the medium term.
