EHPAD = Etablissement pour l'Hébergement de Personnes Agées Dépendantes (care centre for dependent elderly people)
In March 2008 CERN signed an agreement with ORSAC, the organisation that runs the EPHAD "Le Clos Chevalier" in Ornex. Thanks to an investment subsidy from CERN, Members of CHIS are given priority for admittance to the establishment (up to 5 places out of the total of 70).
As a result, CHIS contributes to the development of facilities for dependent persons in the Pays de Gex as well as guaranteeing its members access to these facilities.
Clos Chevalier can be visited by booking an appointment.
An application for admission at the establishment is done directly with the admissions service at Clos Chevalier :
Le Clos Chevalier
7 rue du Pere Adam
tel. 04 50 99 11 00
The application consists of some administrative forms which needs to be completed by the person concerned and a medical section to be completed by the medical practitioner.
The rates are set by the General Council and the DDASS in Ain.
The administrative services of the institution are able to assist residents with the various administrative formalities related to admission.
