Transforming Integrated Care in Community (TICC) is a European collaborative project aiming at adapting, deploying and evaluating an innovative organisational model for the home-based care and services sector in the 2Seas area (England, Belgium, Holland, France), relying on the “Buurtzorg” methodology. The latter has been implemented for more than 10 years in Holland. Buurtzorg is mainly about creating self-managed teams of 6 to 12 carers, working at a neighbourhood level.
Results from this Dutch experimentation are meaningful: Improvement of carers’ life-balance, proximity and responsiveness, dignified care, prevention of dependency in elderly, decrease in unplanned hospitalisations, etc.
