"Nature offers both what nourishes the body and heals it, and fills the soul, heart and mind with wonder”. Pierre Rabhi, French writer and ecologist (free translation). This quote confirms the need to bring nature inside health care establishments, because it helps them become more humane and therapeutic. This is the reason why I have been part of the Foundation since 2012.

Access to nature should not be a privilege, it is a need. Hence my motivation to join the Foundation and make nature accessible to those who cannot visit it.

CEO of the Foundation

Since I was a young boy, I have had a passion for plants and gardening. It was totally natural for me at retirement to embrace the mission of the Forget For A Moment Foundation to bring nature inside health care facilities and seniors’ residences.

Imagine the impact of the flowers you bring home. They change the whole atmosphere. Now imagine the impact of living walls in hospitals. Imagine their impact on patients and their families, imagine their impact on doctors and nurses.

The campaign corresponds very well to this quote from Jean-Jacques Rousseau, an XVIIIth century French philosopher: “Where it's possible to bring a man back to his natural state, we would see a happy and satisfied creature… thus nature makes man happy and good.” The Forget For A Moment Foundation fulfills perfectly this inspiration of liberty as expressed by Rousseau. And it is for us to get inspired by it!

Plants purify air in a closed environment, and they give us peace of mind. This shows to what point a human being can live in harmony with plants in his surroundings. The mission of the Forget For A Moment Foundation is to bring nature’s beauty where we are, be it in a hospital, in a seniors’ residence or in a healthcare centre.
