Dutch in nursing homes

The Dutch Language House has worked together with hospitals for a number of years to find structural language solutions. In 2010, it extended its activities to another branch in the care sector: nursing homes.

We started with an analysis in a number of nursing homes. We try to gauge as closely as possible the needs of proficiency in Dutch. We also help to draw up and to implement the language policy. Future language initiatives such as Dutch lessons will accordingly be supervised better and produce improved results.

We hope to find efficient solutions that can be used in the entire sector.
