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

Parent and child care

For the health, growth and development of your baby and toddler, we advise you to regularly visit our consultation center. At the consultation center your child is weighed, measured and examined by the nurse and doctor. Practical advice and information are also provided for optimal care and education of your child. We offer this care to parents of babies to children of four years old. Activities of the nurse in this care:

  • When your baby is born, we can visit you at home, guide you and give information about the care and nutrition of yourself and your baby.
  • At the clinic, the growth and development of your baby is systematically evaluated by the nurse and doctor.
  • You will receive education about nutrition, upbringing and the development of your baby.
  • We ensure that your child receives all vaccinations according to government policy.
  • When your baby grows from an infant into a toddler, we will request a consultation at the center for toddlers.
  • Your arrival at the center for toddlers is very important because developmental disorders can be discovered from the second year.
  • We also conduct a vision test for your child at the center for toddlers.
