La Maison

La Maison de Tara opened in 2011 thanks to the support of local municipalities - in particular that of Chêne-Bougeries - and some generous donors.


Our vision is that everyone can live an end of life with humanity and dignity. We believe in the importance of training whoever is required to accompany a loved one affected by chronic illness, disability or at the end of life.


We believe in the importance of the group, and in the traditions of accompaniment of end of life amidst the community, just as it used to be until the recent taking over by medicalization.


La Maison de Tara welcomes residents of all ages and nationalities meeting certain criteria .


  All admission requests are subject to an overall assessment by La Maison de Tara, in conjunction with the resident,  their doctor or healthcare institution.


Relatives of our residents are welcome at La Maison de Tara. Invited to get involved in supporting the resident, they benefit from the active support of volunteers and professionals from the house.

Témoignage famille 1.jpg

Resident's companion

My companion hardly ate at all,
I really appreciated that we brought him what he liked
that he loved the most... his small expressos, jam, which were his last pleasures.

Daughter of a resident

La Maison de Tara has allowed all of us to live the last moments in a more
serene and to have more space.
Each person who came to the room was kind and brought us something beautiful.
Dad even had a few more laughs.
And, importantly, thanks to all of you, he told us that he loved us.

Daughter of a resident

A very beautiful memory, the departure of my father
was done with so much respect, listening,
empathy that it helps to make it seem "easier".
