Rotterdam: Nursing home holds 1st caregiving café

On Friday, 7th of March the first caregiving café (MantelZorgcafé) was organized in the nursing home Pniël, Oudedijk 15. Mantel Zorg café is a joint initiative between 5 healthcare organizations: Hoppe Steyn, Peniel, Rubroek, Allegedly and Vraagwijzer and will be organized every month in different places. The reason for that is to take the café closer to the caregivers. In times of changes in the healthcare, when less and less professional organizations are involved in taking care of sick people, it is important for an attention to be given to the caregivers who provide long care for their loved ones. Taking care of people who need it is a difficult job and involves a lot of energy but also emotional stability.  MantelZorgcafé gives the opportunity for them to meet another people in the same situation and exchange advices during the meetings.
