Santé au travail des aides à domicile : apports et limites d’un dispositif de discussion sur le travail

Abstract : The home care sector faces a concerning accident rate alongside great difficulties in the recruitment area. Yet this sector is expanding due to the ageing population and the increasing needs of long-term care. Simultaneously, diverse work sciences converge towards the same matter of interest being work discussion devices. Work debate appears under different names as a health and performance vector for organisations. The following intervention research is based in a federation of associations employing home care aides (HCA). It encompasses two primary objectives: the measure of the impact of work discussion spaces and the deepening understanding of HCA’s occupational health. A work discussion device was therefore tested in several structures. A pairing of quantitative and qualitative methods were implemented in order to explore professionals’ health and to measure the effects of the device. The results reveal the mixed effects of the device regarding HCA’s health and organisational performances. At the intersection of all the methods that were used, perceived recognition and internal relations are the main predictors of the professionals’ health. The work discussion perspectives especially regarding the home care sector are discussed.
