Clowncare wants to reduce loneliness and increase the well being of elders in care settings by organizing clown visits to eldercare centers.

Everyone knows an elder person that is...lonely. Many of these elders end up having no choice but to be taken care for in institutions rather then in their families. These are our grandparents, our parents and our neighbors. 

Clowncare wants to reduce loneliness and increase the well being of elders in care settings by organizing clown visits to eldercare centers.

Our clowns are professional artists that are prepared to interact with elders in a one-to-one basis, helping them to smile again, to play, to laugh.

Everyone has the Right to Happiness, older people too. We want to guarantee this Right, starting with a smile.
