Who we are
High quality of care
Over 5000 employees devote themselves together with 1900 volunteers to care for around 5200 clients, including (young) adults, elderly persons, children or the whole family.
Society places high demands on our ability to cope, which is why we offer people with a mental disability and their families support where needed, both at home and at our living facilities.
ASVZ offers people with a mental disability the opportunity to shape their lives. The starting point is always the client’s personal background. We let clients tell us what they want, however major or minor their needs may be. We then look for a solution together.
Broad care package
We have come across a variety of needs in the course of time, enabling us to set up a diverse package of care and services, and our employees dispose of widely divergent professional skills. The services we offer develop in step with the needs of our clients.
ASVZ wants to offer high quality care. Therefore, a good relationship with the client and his/her family comes first. We continuously keep the dialogue about one another’s possibilities and impossibilities open, since this is the basis for committed personal care and other services.
What we want
Each individual is unique, with his own needs, preferences and possibilities. ASVZ strives to meet the personal wants and needs of its clients to the best of its ability, however major or minor they may be. The point is to allow the client to make independent choices and to be able to influence his/her own life and surroundings.
As an organisation, it is essential to have clear starting points in order to adequately respond to the various needs of clients. This is certainly the case if many different employees work together to shape the care and services provided. ASVZ’s method of working is described in the care vision (flipbook), which serves as our compass. What we wish to express with this care vision is what we stand for as an organisation and what is required of our employees in terms of conduct.
The main question that our employees can ask themselves and each other is: what and how? What do you intend to do and how do you intend to do it? And then proceed to take action accordingly. The relationship and dialogue with the client are essential in this respect, and our entire package of care and services should be focussed on this.
