Here are some important things to know about home care in the Netherlands:
Thuiszorg (homecare) associations provide for all domestic medical services. They are often organized as kruisverenigingen (home nursing associations) where you can borrow medical equipment as well as hire nurses.
Baby consultatie bureaus (health clinics for babies) are often part of these associations. In these clinics every newborn baby and young child is checked regularly by specially trained doctors who provide immunization programs and other pediatric care. The child will be referred to a specialist for specific problems.
