It happens more and more often that people, clients and their families contact me and my colleagues to ask if there are places like Family Care Foundation in other countries. I am not so sure about that, but if some of you know a place a bit like ours, please let me know!!!
The other thing is that I would deeply love to encourage other people to start something like our place since so many people are asking for that kind of “treatment”. I dislike the word treatment, but for lack of better alternatives it might be called that now.
I often meet people saying that they wish to start something like Family Care Foundation, Some weeks ago I met colleagues in NZ who have ideas about how to do it. I really hope they make it come true. It is “just” to start, since it is anyhow impossible to know beforehand what will happen and what it will be like. The main thing is to have a vision, to find some people to collaborate and to realize it will be very hard at times, but that is how life and work is. And the benefits are huge. That is what I have experienced myself and it is also what people around me say when talking about our shared experience.
There is a need for places which combine a so-called “ordinary life” with therapeutic knowledge, and so many people are asking for places like that. Daniel Mackler has indeed shown an alternative by his movies. Now we have to find a way together to make it come true in a very concrete way.
