SlowCare

​Adequate health care for the disabled is no longer a given. Many parents of special needs children and special needs relatives are greatly concerned about the current situation. They would face an urgent need to find appropriate facilities elsewhere should they no longer be able to provide the level of care their relatives require. 

SlowCare is a well thought-out small-scale assisted living concept developed by Lucian and Ingeborg van Heumen to fill this need. SlowCare is to be introduced at multiple locations across the Netherlands. Lucian and Ingeborg van Heumen are currently still providing full-time care for their multiply disabled daughter Eline. Their SlowCare concept brings ‘mutual care’ closer to people’s communities. 
SlowCare care facilities, which were inspired by neighborhood care, cater to the needs of between 16 and 24 residents. They are run by relatives and professionally organized. Informal care by relatives and civil society are here given tangible form and content.  

Impact

Unfortunately, many of these types of projects fail, sometimes after years of hard work. SlowCare collects knowledge and experience on the development of care facilities and how they are put into operation, and makes these data available to parents and relatives so they don’t have start from scratch when they want to start up a similar facility in their own community. This way, the start-up period for opening such small-scale living facilities can be halved. The SlowCare Netherlands knowledge and experience center is being set up with the stated ambition to eventually realize 50 such facilities or similar initiatives.  

Generous Minds’ Role

Generous Minds helps SlowCare gain insight in this growth process. SlowCare’s knowledge and experience is combined with the expertise of the Generous Minds experts and enriched with what’s already available elsewhere. Generous Minds also helps develop a facility intended to provide promising new SlowCare initiatives with start-up capital.
