The user perspective is our starting point in innovations in housing and care. Users are often, just like organisations, blinded by their situation. The art of our work is to take our client on a journey of innovation, sometimes quite literally, to analyse their needs and look for inspiration towards solutions in a much wider perspective. For example cutting edge ICT development is happening in formula one racing and defence technology. They can teach you about data transfer and ambient technology.

Recently we have specialised in dementia care. We are certified experts for a revolutionary model of dementia care called Psychobiografical Care, that has proven to preserve emotional stability and even restore many functionalities that were lost. This patient empowering model is easy to combine with views like dementia care mapping or maeutic care. Our partnership with De Mensch enables us to teach this method to your employees or students. We can help you with the design of your care home using the insights of this visionary care model.

Neighbourhood development can be achieved through use of a variety of possible interventions. HabiPro believes that housing, care and welfare organisations should combine their efforts together with other stakeholders to maximise the effect of their interventions. It is all about achieving better levels of communication and interaction in neighbourhoods.  It is about knowing who lives in your street. Economical interventions are sometimes more powerful in effect than renovation. HabiPro works with leading organisations in the development of community currencies and incentive models that will bring about sustainable change and social and economical uplifting in your community.

With leading architects we design for care, creating a healing environment. Colour, light, space and functionality are being integrated to a collective vision of not only a healthy but also an empowering environment.
