Live and online

A multi-day in-depth study session can be held at The Hogeweyk, on location and online. Regardless of where the sessions are held, our clients experience them as very inspiring and offering a valuable introduction to the concept and The Hogeweyk. As well as the opportunity to explore more extensive crucial elements and discuss critical details. These days help you to envision and design your own project based on The Hogeweyk Care Concept and Be Advice Paradigm.

How to envision and design your own project on the Hogeweyk Care Concept and Be Advice Paradigm

A multi-day in-depth study session is led by several consultants with years of experience in concept development, implementation of The Hogeweyk Care Concept, change management and operational management. During an introductory meeting we examine your actual request and adjust the programme to your wishes, needs and, for example, your project’s current stage of development, whether it concerns a new project, an existing care organisation that wants to innovate and transform as a whole or a part of it, for example a day center. We help you to understand how you can envision and design your project or concept based on The Hogeweyk Care Concept and Be Advice Paradigm and how it can be applied in your country, environment and project. These interactive days are ideally suited to you and your dedicated team—i.e. the team you will work with to implement the change or innovation.



An example of what to expect

  • A 2- or 3-day programme led by two advisors including at least one founder;
  • General introduction of The Hogeweyk and The Hogeweyk Care Concept by means of presentations, guided tour and/or videos;
  • Introduction on and explanation of the Be Advice Paradigm© (our evidence informed decision making tool to guide innovation);
  • Interactive brown paper pillar session, an intensive deepening of the 7 pillars in about a day and a half;
  • How you can envision your idea or project based on The Hogeweyk Care Concept and Be Advice Paradigm, how to apply it in your country, environment and project;
  • Formulating opportunities and challenges;
  • Deepening a few topics of your choice, such as building/environment design or cultural change;
  • Exploring a possible road map towards realisation.

After a multi-day in-depth study session, you will receive a hand-out of the presentations for internal use.

"Working with Eloy and Iris during the training sessions was the best thing that could have happened for our teams. Just when we thought we had dementia care figured out, you came along and opened our eyes to the lack of “normalcy” that even “high quality” facilities here in this country continue to lack. We are firmly committed to bringing that normalcy of daily routine to our new dementia focused community center here in South Bend Indiana! This will be a revolutionary model of care…and, truly, care the way it should always be. Thank you so much for your insights and the time spent with REAL services, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Services, and Center for Hospice Care. I hope that we are able to get together again in the future! "

Angelica Baginske | Director of Alzheimer's and Dementia Services

"Since 2015, several politicians, managers and employees from the municipality of Kristiansand, Norway, have been visiting The Hogeweyk on various occasions. We became inspired to build new care homes called Strømmehaven, which opened in 2020. Experiencing The Hogeweyk as well as the guidings and workshops by Be, have been a very good contribution to develop both our buildings and our care concept. The consultants at Be are always giving us a warm welcome, manage to give good and detailed explanations about the vision and principles in The Hogeweyk, and dare to ask challenging questions which have been important and helpful for our own process of understanding and decision making. We look forward to our further cooperation!"

Ilse van Lingen | Advisor Plan & Strategy Strømmehaven

"I would like to say how wonderful it was to have Jannette and Eloy with us last week to tell us all about The Hogeweyk Care Concept. Our staff were very impressed and they have taken away many ideas to think about and in particular how they can make small changes to normalise the lives of all our residents and not those just with dementia."

Robyn Simpson | General Manager Operations & Service Development, Doutta Galla Aged Services (Footscray, Australia - 2017)

"The advisors were engaging, enthusiastic, had a willingness to share, thoughtful, informed, open, honest, insightful with regards to the issues our countries share with our populations and politics. Also we felt we had a very real, informed conversation and we left with a feeling that we could rely on you as partners in the new venture for our own partnership."

Rob McCulloch-Graham | Chief Officer Health & Social Care, Scottish Borders Health & Social Care Partnership

"Your workshop was fantastic and will help many groups in Calgary improve their care delivery for people with dementia."
