Buurtzorg is a model that has taken the carer and nursing industry by storm in the Netherlands. Buurtzorg means neighbourhood care in Dutch. With the Buurtzorg model, continuity, building trusting relationships and networks are all important. Under the Buurtzorg model, staff members are empowered to make the right decision for the client right there as a team, and not through a traditional management hierarchy.

VIVA’s first self managed teams will operate in the early onset dementia space, offering a range of at home services.

We are here to help people to live as independently as possible. This means working in a way that promotes a ‘can do’ attitude and identifies strengths in each individual.

 

 

It also means being flexible and willing, giving people as much control as possible over the support they receive. We always aim to respond quickly and flexibly to requests for new services, or changes to services, without sacrificing the quality of what we do.
