Woonzorg De Wende: A Haven of Care in Overasselt


Nestled in the serene town of Overasselt, Woonzorg De Wende is not just a residential care facility for seniors; it's a vibrant community dedicated to providing compassionate care and comfortable living. Within this nurturing environment, a recent project supported by Barenbrug Holland has added an extra layer of joy and engagement for residents. Completed in April 2024 with the collaborative effort of 10 dedicated individuals, this project has truly enhanced the quality of life for everyone at Woonzorg De Wende.

About 'Woonzorg De Wende'

Beyond providing comfortable living quarters, Woonzorg De Wende places a strong emphasis on comprehensive care.

The project

With the generous assistance of Barenbrug Holland's Helping with Hands organization, Woonzorg De Wende has undertaken the renovation of its existing chicken coop, complemented by the installation of an outdoor run. This endeavor, made possible by the skilled hands and caring hearts of volunteers, has transformed the space into a sanctuary where residents can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in a safe and accessible environment.


The impact of this project extends beyond the physical enhancements. It provides residents, many of whom grapple with mental illness, dementia, or other challenges preventing independent living, with opportunities for meaningful engagement and sensory stimulation. Moreover, the proximity of the chicken coop to the terrace of the elderly and the outdoor area of the daycare center fosters intergenerational connections, allowing both the young and the elderly to share in moments of joy and companionship.


Woonzorg De Wende is not only a place of care; it's a community where collaboration and compassion thrive. Thanks to the partnership between Woonzorg De Wende and Barenbrug Holland's Helping with Hands, residents can experience the beauty of nature and the warmth of community, enhancing their overall well-being and quality of life.
