The Dr Clown Foundation brings joy to those who need it most: hospitalized children and lonely seniors.
The Dr Clown Foundation is an innovative arts-in-healthcare organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life of hospitalized children and seniors in long-term care facilities through the interventions of its relationals clowns that combine personal contact, games and imagination. The goal is to integrate relational clowns into the establishments’ healthcare plans. The foundation oversees two distinctive programs: Dr Clown, mainly intended for children and La belle visite, destined for seniors with a loss of autonomy, residing in long-term care facilities.
