What is it about?
The Tubbe Model is an organisational and management model applied to a number of residential and care homes (RCHs) in a rural community in the west of Sweden. What does it offer? Effective, efficient, attractive homes where senior citizens can live life to the full; attractive, motivating workplaces for staff; and encouragement to the residents to be energetic and make the most of what they have to offer to make their lives more meaningful.
At the request of the general public and Belgian actors in the sector, a number of RCH managers and stakeholders were given the opportunity to find out more about the Tubbe Model. The King Baudouin Foundation organised reciprocal visits and, after various contacts with the model's Swedish initiators, six pilot projects were launched in Belgium.
The aim of this flyer is to share the experience gained so far in these pilot projects. A more extensive publication will follow in early 2019, when the pilot projects have been assessed.
