Assistant BurenService The Hague (The Hague Part-time)

BurenService is now active in The Hague!

BurenService has been active in Zwolle, Hattem and the Veluwe for 9 years now. . Inspired by Monique’s warm service in that part of Holland, it is my dream to offer the same excellent service and sincere commitment to our clients in The Hague.

BurenService is Dutch for Neighbour Service; always close by. At BurenService we guarantee respect, warmth, quality and above all he flexible service where we consider no request as too weird to try and meet. We wish everyone to be able to grow old in a dignified, individual way. In your own home, if that’s what you want. We see you as the individual and unique personality that you are. With your own story, dreams and wishes.

It really bothers me that sometimes older people are patronized or considered as a homogenous group while you are an individual and a full member of society. Everybody deserves to be seen, there is no ‘’one size fits all’’ solution. The reality is that with age it can be nice to get help with certain things. At BurenService The Hague we provide the assistance needed to live the life you want, Under your own direction. We challenge difficulties and look for possibilities, and will help you realizing them.

That is why we do what we do!. Everybody should be able to decide how they want to lead their lives, with a little help and assistance from your ‘’professional neighbour”
