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

District nursing

District nursing is professional care in your familiar environment and this care is self-evident, based on quality of care in which the satisfaction of the client is central.

Our goal is that people can stay home for as long as possible and get their necessary care there. We also want to ensure that people can return home (faster), for example after admission to the hospital. District nursing is for everyone.

We offer the following services:

  • Nursing care such as wound care, administration of medication (based on protocols) and personal hygiene.
  • Encourage our clients to retain their independence as much as possible.
  • Preventive care and guidance of the client and the informal cargiver by providing information about the development of the disease, nutrition, medication use and adjusting to other rules of life.
  • We apply terms for the delivery of our care. Please take into account our delivery conditions. One example of this regulation is having your dogs on a leash for the safety of our employees.


How can you apply for district nursing?

If you are still in the hospital, our transfer nurse will help you prepare the care at your home. If you are already at home, you can request home care through your general practitioner. The general practitioner must give permission via the care portal.

For more information about the care request, please refer to our page about the Care Central.
