Home care is for everyone: young and old, families with or without children, the elderly and all caregivers

Services

Stichting Wit Gele Kruis voor Thuiszorg “Prinses Margriet” (Stichting WGK) offers a wide range of assistance and services. Our objective of these services and assistance is that people can stay at home as long as possible and be cared for in their homes. The foundation also wants to ensure that people can return home more quickly to receive further help there, for example after being admitted to the hospital.

 Home care is also available for the parents of children up to four years old. Moreover, we believe it is important to offer transportation to people who do not have transport possibilities in order for them to be on time at their medical appointment.

 Home care is also available for the relatives of every client, whom we call the informal caregiver. Every person who cares for his or her loved one with dedication and love has a risk of becoming overburdened. As a home care provider, we can’t perform our job without informal caregivers and that is why it is also our job to support the informal caregivers and relieve them where necessary.

 To be eligible for home care, you will be required to submit a number of documents. For more information about the request for care, please refer to our page about the Care Central.
