The Foundation was born on November 30, 2018 with the vocation of serving the Maresme region and the city of Mataró in honor of its founders, as well as on behalf of families, friends and professionals who, after years of attendance, consider that the The health and welfare of the population is also the responsibility of the caregivers themselves, so that the disability is not a risk of social exclusion, also chronic, such as poverty or discrimination

The objective of the Foundation is to provide comprehensive coverage to all those patients and families of different backgrounds and different sensitivities, who suffer an associated chronic process where there are usually difficulties in the autonomy of patients, in their cognitive abilities, a process of adaptation or difficulties of reintegration into the community.

Thus, the groups likely to receive comprehensive support can be very diverse:

  • Neurological diseases (Stroke, Trauma, spinal injuries and everything known as Brain Injury) generally known as “Physical Disability or Functional Diversity.
  • Autoimmune diseases (encephalitis, liver problems, congenital and hereditary diseases).
  • However, it must be taken into account that other pathologies or diseases may have difficulties that require support throughout the life cycle, such as:
    • Diseases derived from terminal processes
    • Rare or minor diseases
    • Difficulties arising from traumatic life processes

The concept of the chronic patient must be analyzed from the perspective of “a continuum” where age is not an exclusive factor. The Foundation ensures the integration and individualized work in each case as well as delimits the different activities and projects according to each specific group in order to empower and help other groups in their actions (associations of affected people and families).
