By listening to the needs of senior citizens, helpers, people with mobility issues or the sight and hearing impaired, Vita Confort provides personalized reception with its trained teams, differentiating solutions and products, and tailored services and tools providing completely transparent visibility.
Vita Confort consultants are familiar with the needs of senior citizens, the disabled and their helpers, and have been trained in the basics of occupational therapy and can even recommend a partner occupational therapist when required for the project.
They have Silverbat level training provided by Handibat Développement (CAPEB* brand), which recognizes professionals’ skills in the area of accessibility work and fitouts, thereby ensuring a high quality end result. Finally, they have also completed training for Choisir en Confiance (Choose in Confidence) certification, which guarantees ethical sales. As a result, the consultants have solid knowledge of the relevant needs and solutions, and can even arrange for a home visit on request to help with the design of any mobility access layout project.
The design and purpose of the products sold by Vita Confort meet a triple requirement: user benefits, aesthetics and price. They are developed by Lapeyre in partnership with experts (such as the D.School of the Paris School of Engineering Ecole des Ponts), and manufactured in Lapeyre’s plants. They can also be designed by partners under a collaborative arrangement.
Vita Confort therefore has access to a unique product offer covering:

Right from the entrance, the automatic doors are equipped with an audible guiding system to aid the blind and vision-impaired.
The reception and consulting desks are equipped with an induction loop system for hearing aids that amplifies the sound and protects against interference, and simultaneous signing and subtitling to facilitate discussion.
The sales outlet has a product showroom with bathroom and kitchen displays designed to meet everyone’s needs with modern and non-stigmatizing products. It also has various “product areas” with self-serve displays for products that contribute to improving comfort and getting around in the home, and a corner specifically for home automation products displaying a comprehensive range of solutions to ensure home security and automated control.
The Vita Confort sales outlet is involved in the life of the neighborhood and has a specialized bookshop where visitors can get detailed information about aging and disability-related problems, and a “workshop” space where residents and associations can meet for discussions.
This space will be open for meetings, conferences and discussion groups to share solutions to adapt a home for an older or disabled person. These events will also be an opportunity to co-develop products and services with stakeholders in the silver economy.
