Wheelchair bike thanks to 'Waardigheid en Trots' initiative
In 2014, the Dutch Parliament launched the 'Waardigheid en Trots' (Dignity and Pride) programme. The purpose of this programme, initiated by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, is to improve the care provided in nursing homes in the coming years in a measurable and tangible manner.
Dignity and pride. Loving care for our elderly. This is what good care for the elderly in nursing homes is all about. Care that is in keeping with the client's wishes and capabilities, with warm involvement of family and loved ones: dignity. Care that is provided with pleasure by motivated carers, nurses, nursing specialists and therapists and that meets their professional standards and (professional) pride.

Thanks to the help of this initiative, Careaz J.W. Andriessen was able to purchase their VeloPlus wheelchair bike.
