Two women stand up for nurses and family caregivers

Sandra Mantz

Two women combine forces and passion for the topic of care. With #1min.care they activate positive forces and raise awareness for nurses and family caregivers in our society.

In the jubilee year of nurses and midwives 2020 they collect emotional applause on prominent stages to raise the profile of nursing in the whole world.

Sophie is following her concept “Ilses wide world” since 2010 with the objective of strengthening the relationship between people with dementia and their nurses and family caregivers.



Sandra was a caregiver for elderly people for over 25 years. Today she promotes a human communication and culture in nursing. As a member of the rotary club Obernburg she is responsible for the office of senior citizens and engages in voluntary work focusing on a good dialogue with people who need care.

Together they will swing into action on saturday, February 29th. Sandra and Sophie will be in Martin Rütter’s show “Freispruch” at the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg. There they will collect one minute of applause together with the whole audience.

THANK YOU in advance to the whole team of Martin Rütter!

Sophie Rosentreter


1min.care is a POWER CHALLENGE for nursing

1min.care wants to draw attention to nursing in a positive and easy way using many different stages within our society.

Of course, all colleagues in the healthcare industry are invited to applaud for their own profession.

Everyone chooses his or her own motivation to applaud.

1min.care encurages and invites to show solidarity to nurses from other professional groups of our society, to stand up for unity in their own ranks and to pat/tap oneself on the shoulders

The applause of the audience can be a symbol / a sign for

  • recognition
  • appreciation
  • encouragement
  • attention
  • gratitude
  • respect
  • revaluation of the nursing profession
  • awareness and extension of responsibility for the current situation of healthcare, caretakers and cared all over the world


Cooperation with Nursing Now

1min.care and Nursing Now will put their strengths and work together to ensure that nursing is given its deserved value.

What is Nursing Now?

Nursing Now is a three-year global campaign run in collaboration with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organization.

Nursing Now is run by a Campaign Board made up of nurses and non-nurses from 16 different countries. The campaign is a programme of the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

Its aim is to raise the status and profile of nursing worldwide.


Start Video

One minute of applause is very long! Clapping your hands for a minute for a certain topic releases a lot of emotions. Cheering, laughing, getting up, giving a standing ovation, encouraging each other, looking into the camera supports the applause. We wish you all a lot of joy.

Nursing matters to all of us. Honor to whom honor is due!

1min.care – one minute for nursing.

Give nursing, our nurses and people who are being cared for, 60 seconds of applause for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Duration of the challenge

The goal of the stage challenge is to collect at least 24 hours of applause in a video documentary.

24 hours of applause for nurses who are available to the people 24 hours a day.

The result is 1440 minutes of applause or 1440 times an audience that applauds.

A big goal – we are excited!
