This case study concerns the Residence Tarnos Océan home, an establishment of the European Association of the Physically Disabled, which welcomes residents in Tarnos, in the south of the Landes, who require assistance for most of the acts of daily life. The renovation of the site, based on an analysis of situations and working conditions, has made it possible to provide everyone with a meaningful environment. The work carried out between 2015 and 2017 was based on a detailed analysis of the activity and work situations linked to the needs of residents. Many investments have been made in the development of premises, the creation of new services, the provision of equipment and training. Thus, the structure was able to increase its reception capacity by 10 places.
