Martin DeschênesMartin Deschênes, Assurance Partner in the Montréal office, will be co-presiding the Dr. Clown fundraising campaign this fall. In his second year of involvement with the organization, he will be contributing concretely to the success and influence of this campaign that helps sick children and the elderly.

Improving the Quality of Life of People in the Hospital

The mission of the Dr. Clown organization, which became Jovia in 2012, is to contribute to improving the quality of life of people in the hospital through its therapeutic clown program. By creating a connection through games and using the imagination, therapeutic clowns work with two types of people, children hospitalized in pediatrics departments and the increasingly dependent elderly. More than 30 healthcare establishments call on Jovia’s personalized services. The group has also received the official support of the Collège des médecins du Québec and the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec.
