What Makes Our Disability, Aged Care, and Allied Health Supports Unique?

To first understand Neighbourhood Care, we need to talk a little bit about the Netherland’s largest home-care provider, Buurtzorg. Founded in 2006, the organisation has gained worldwide recognition and expanded into 26 countries by utilising its revolutionary, unique, and critically-praised “flat” organisational model. Not only does this model reduce bureaucracy and improve communication, it has also been shown to increase both employee and client satisfaction. Why is this relevant? Well, the name “Buurtzorg” directly translates into “Neighbourhood Care”.

What is a “flat” organisation? 

Essentially, a flat organisation operates without any levels of middle management. What does that mean? By removing middle managers, we give our teams (the people who know you best) maximum autonomy to make decisions with you regarding your care while reducing bureaucracy in the decision-making process. Not only does this empower our teams, but it also improves communication and aids in building strong, meaningful, and lasting relationships with your support workers, nurses, and allied health professionals—thus, improving the quality of your care.

How do I book a consultation? 

At Neighbourhood Care, we like to say “first coffee, then care”, which symbolises our desire to get to know you on a more personal level. What better way to do that than over a hot cup of coffee? If you’re looking for support for yourself or a loved one and you value meaningful, personal connection as much as we do, click here and book your “coffee consultation”. We look forward to hearing from you!
