A warm blanket of care and attention
At Herberg Welgelegen, vulnerable people (predominantly older people with dementia) receive day care in a small, intimate environment. This wonderful initiative arose from the sincere wish to provide excellent, affordable care. What makes care excellent? It’s often only visible in the small details: a happy face, eyes that light up or a relaxed smile. Herberg’s professional care providers and highly committed volunteers know how to put smiles on people’s faces with personal care and attention. And what you give out you get back.
The lean and flat organisational structure keeps care affordable. In addition, because Herberg’s commercial activities generate a profit, this limits the burden on the government and the clients. And crucially, the local community also provides support. Excellent, affordable care: the Herberg shows us it’s possible.
