Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the socially and ecclesiastically influential founders of the first small home in Amsterdam and the sister congregation that was part of it. Who were these men and what was their goal? What did their activities mean in terms of care, and what was the influence of gender and class factors on charity? The structure of this historical description follows Joan Tronto's conceptual model, which distinguishes four phases of care. The chapter considers that these four phases can also be seen as manifestations of care that do not necessarily take place in a chronological order. First phase is caring about. The second phase is taking care of, the actual organisation of care so that certain needs can be met. The third phase is care giving, the concrete action of caring. The fourth phase is care receiving, or the response by the care receiver to the care given.
