Abstract
The hospital is an environment which accomodates the elderly persons and in which these last have to make trainings at one time when they are not in full possession with all their physical, psychological and cognitive capacities. They can then live there humiliating situations which generate feelings of discomfort, embarrassment and shame. The presence of interveners not very warm, lacking compassion lack and impressed negative prejudices towards the elderly patients, is another factor which is added to lead them not to feel at ease, involving, inter alia, consequences a fall of their self-esteem. However the affective touch is a strategy which would have the potential to act on the personal value of the elderly patients and to thus improve their self-esteem. It is with a view to popularize the use of the affective touch in practice nurse that a study was carried out in order to check its effects on the self-esteem of the elderly patients. The results confirm that the emotional touch influences positively the self-esteem of the elderly patients. The authors of the study thus recommend the systematization of the affective touch in nursing practice.

Abstract
The social invisibility of aging lesbians is a major obstacle to the adaptation of residential services to their needs. After looking at the difficulties associated with aging among lesbians, this article examines social mechanisms that reproduce their invisibility. Findings are based on a qualitative analysis of two series of interviews, 10 with service providers in private residences for older people and 10 with aging lesbians. On one side, there is openness at the level of personal attitudes, but proactive commitment in residence management and knowledge about older lesbians' psychosocial needs are lacking. On the other side, aging lesbians perceive residences as an environment where they would not feel secure enough to be open about their sexual orientation.
