Casa de Sofia is a pioneering healthcare space in Catalonia that provides comprehensive care to children with complex chronic illnesses and advanced illnesses who need care that they cannot receive at home, but do not require the high specialization of a hospital. The centre offers these children a safe and friendly environment where expert caregivers provide them with such care and empower families and empower them when the time comes to thunder at home. The House of Sofia owes its name to Sofia Cruz López, a girl who was born with a serious de-generative minority disease, Sanfilippo Syndrome. Despite the serious limitations of her ill-ness, Sofia lived happily, surrounded by her family, at home, running and playing with her pets, and admiring the stars in the sky. This spirit permeates every corner of the house that bears his name, so that all the children and families in it feel at home, but at the same time cared for, helped by health professionals. This is also the wish of his parents Jordi and Mercè and his brother Jordi, of his association and of all the people and entities that have worked tirelessly for years to make the project a reality.
