CURANDO Elderly Care, Odisee University College

Elderly care is under pressure.

While an increasing amount of elderly people needs an increasing amount of care, financial resources are still hardly sufficient. This is why vzw Curando and Odisee University College have been searching for evidence based innovations: to be able to continue guaranteeing high-quality care, even during these challenging times. Residents always come first, so that we don’t lose track of our main goals: improving their quality of care and/or their quality of life.

Different studies in several Flemish nursing homes have resulted in numerous innovations: the introduction of disposable wash gloves and the supply of more comfortable seat cushions and mattress covers. We are striving to reduce the use of medication and person centered care is our basic principle: to treat each resident not only as a resident, but as a person with needs, likes and dislikes.

Small changes create great impact.

Together we can accomplish greatness.
