Nouveaux dispositifs de prise en charge, nouveaux métiers ? Les dynamiques de professionnalisation pour les soignants de première ligne en milieu spécialisé Alzheimer

Abstract : The increase in public action on Alzheimer’s disease since the early 2000s has contribu- ted to the emergence and consolidation of a specialised care sector. The Alzheimer’s care sector consists of dedicated facilities, which operate relatively autonomously, usually wit- hin elder care services (nursing homes, at-home nursing care, geriatric hospitals). Based on a qualitative survey of carers at the dementia unit of a nursing home, this article explores the different dynamics of career advancement in the Alzheimer’s care sector. After describing the context in which occupational practices are developing in care for Alzheimer’s patients, this paper shows how frontline staff working in a dementia unit see it as a place where they can build careers, by improving their qualifications, by acquiring specific skills and through autonomy. The paper then highlights areas where these dif- ferent dynamics come into conflict.
