Testimonies from two Grenoble hospital caregivers

Carole

I’d like to share my view on Soleil Rouge clowns’ work. I am working at Grenoble pediatric hospital. I discovered the clowns during one of their visit in oncology unit. My first thought was to wonder what clowns could bring to hospitalized children. But once I saw faces brightening up with joy and happiness, kids screaming with laughter, I understood it was giving them a well-being, it helped them facing the disease. My opinion on professional hospital clowns then totally changed: I realized their action was essential.

Hello, I am Bernard, working in a Paediatric unit since 26 years. Soleil rouge clowns bring good mood, cheerfulness and joy in hospital. Those are very special and unique moments for both children and parents that allow them to escape, for some time at least, from hospital routine and care. I especially remember a child, in oncology unit, who was taking a lot of fun playing with the clowns and this joy and good mood spread, in turn, to me. Good mood is catching and it's always a pleasure to meet the clowns, to have a good time and to joke around with them. I believe their work is complementary to medical care and they fully fit into the hospital.
