In contrast to stories of people who really seen and heard and feel satisfied. The differences are huge. We find it important that everyone can take cognizance of these differences and that homes of the experiences to learn,” says Diana Veldman, director-director of Patiëntenfederatie the Netherlands.


The federation hopes that nursing homes that are below the average score to be able to learn homes with satisfied residents. “From the experiences we learn that it is not just a matter of ‘more money in there and everything will be ok,” says Veldman.

“It’s all in the way they offer, their approach and staffing align with what for people is important. In addition, the generic quality standards are in order. Also differences in the houses, so that information must be transparent.”
