The EPHAD previously known as Les Marronniers consisted of 3 buildings built between 1972 and 1995, which had become obsolete in terms of safety equipment and accessibility. The new Les Châtaigniers establishment has 134 20m² bedrooms offering 130 permanent accommodation beds (including 14 beds dedicated to Alzheimer’s) and 4 temporary accommodation beds. The project has also allowed for the creation of 6 day care places and 14 activity centre places with adapted care (PASA).

The total cost of the operation reached €16.6mn and benefited from grants from Caisse nationale de solidarité et d’autonomie (CNSA) for over €1.5mn and €820,000 from the departmental council. The EPHAD provided €3,924,759 in equity.
