For nearly 45 years, our experience with the most complex care situations has shown us that the heart and good will is not enough. Each care professional will have to strengthen their knowledge and skills to create and maintain a relationship, a Humanitude link while providing care, if they want to succeed and prevail. During our training sessions, in the rooms, with all the vulnerable people who present complex cases, which hustle and frustrate professionals on a daily basis, a Humanitude’s qualified trainer will teach our philosophy to perfect each care gesture. Teaching some of the hundreds of techniques that we have developed, in order to establish a positive relationship, to professionalize the gaze, speech, touch and verticality, the Humanitude results are assured. Using our care tools for a humane approach, there will be an improvement of care, nutrition and social activities effectiveness, all while changing the culture into a place of life and desires.
Humanitude units worldwide, adopt Humanitude as a quality approach, to ensure its sustainability and achieve the desired results. A certified Humanitude unit is a wellbeing organization of excellency, where people of all ages feel welcome and appreciated. The best Humanitude results we have everyday are the people’s smiles during care.
Come with us as we upgrade person centered care, let’s improve people’s lives and change healthcare culture with Humanitude!

An innovative, awarded and impactful training approach
to improve the quality of life of vulnerable people
and the quality of work life of caregivers.
Humanitude aim is to promote the links that allow Humans to connect with each other regardless of their health status.
The maintenance and promotion of these links is fundamental and done essentially with three relational pillars: gaze, speech, touch and an identity pillar: verticality. These four pillars constitute the essential and vital foundations of positive human relations throughout our lives.
The Humanitude training approach makes it possible to professionalize these pillars and properly care for people living in any care setting, with all the associated benefits.
It aims to generate a return on investment based on medical and economic indicators: dependency, risk factors, severity of illness, length of stay, etc.
