WHAT IS
WHEEL OF CARE?

Wheel Of Care is a collaboration of midwives and nurses offering home care in and around Brussels. We characterize ourselves through slow care, a personalized patient approach as well as a sustainable way of working with materials and transport.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We love our job and we want our patients to love the personalised care we are offering them.
Therefore, we chose to work with a special emphasis on:

SMALL TEAM

We want to know our patients and want our patients to know us. We believe in a durable and open relationship between caregiver, caretaker and their surroundings. This is the only way to guarantee personalised solutions and continuality in our caregiving.

SLOW CARE

Through our work experience, we have learned to slow down. We want both to have and to make the time to listen to our patients as well as enjoy our time together. We are convinced that this is not only of interest for the patients, but also for us.

SUSTAINABLE CARE

We chose to work in a sustainable way: the materials we use are sustainable and safe. To make all our home visits, we have opted for the e-bike, helping Brussels being more green and keeping us in shape at the same time!

FLORA

I’m Flora! After my studies in midwifery in Leuven, I head to Antwerp to study Tropical Medicine. I did several internships and missions in different parts of Africa, such as Cameroon, Rwanda and Congo. For several years, I worked at the Sint-Jan Hospital in Brussels, first in dialysis and afterwards in the mobile unit. Working in the mobile unit offered me the opportunity to be flexible. I could follow several courses to work in the high care unit, the emergency or in the palliative care unit. Working as a midwife and as a nurse fulfils me with energy and satisfaction. Being able to do this in the home environment of the patient only increases those feelings. When I’m not at work, I like to spend my time painting or planning my next travel destination.

AMANDA

My name is Amanda! I studied as a midwife at the Erasmus High School in Brussels and I am very excited to be able to strengthen the Wheel of Care team. Next to Wheel of Care, I also work as a home nurse. During my training, I did an internship in various hospitals and at home in and around Brussels. I really enjoyed my internship in the Philippines and helped countless moms to put their babies in the world! I like to offer my home care, it allows me to get to know people better in their personal environment to provide the most appropriate care. In addition to my passion for midwifery, I love to travel, I sing in a pop music choir and I play guitar.

THOMAS

My name is Thomas. After my nursing studies Brussels, I started working at the Saint Jean Clinic in Brussels. At first I was working at the intensive care unit and now I'm working in a surgery department. Working for Wheel of Care gives me the ability to combine my passion for patient care with my love for cycling.

JULIE

My name is Julie. I followed the development of the Wheel Of Care project since the beginning via social networks and then got the chance to jump on board. Interested in the environment and health, I earned my bachelor's degree in nursing in addition to my cheese master studies. I worked in a psychiatric hospital in South India for a year. Thanks to this trip, I learned to work autonomously and to grow my flexibility and adaptability skills. Home care creates the opportunity to offer customized quality care, taking care of the personality of the patient and his environment. This builds up a relationship that is right, healthy and honest. If I’m not riding my bike or stand behind my cheese counter, I am a beekeeper, I love to take sport challenges, I spend time with my friends and I search for new places in the world to discover!

KIM

Hello, I am Kim! Born and raised in Brussels, I also graduated as a midwife in my favorite city. Feeling hungry for more, I pursued my studies in Ghent, where I obtained a master’s degree in Healthcare Management and Policy. Through internships and volunteering, I got to experience how it is to be a midwife in the Netherlands, Mauritius and South Africa. I am someone who likes a challenge and I love giving everything for our patients every day. Bringing a smile to their face is what makes me happy. In my spare time, I am a occasional sportswoman, a regular bruncher and I love baking.

IENS

Hello, I'm Iens. I graduated in 2011 as a midwife and have some years of experience as a nurse and midwife in various hospitals in Ghent. In addition to being a midwife with heart and soul, I have another passion which is to travel and to discover other cultures. Joining Doctors Without Borders made perfect sense as I could combine my 2 greatest passions. I have already completed multiple missions in extremely harsh and challenging conditions. Today I want to use my dedication, passion and experience to help young parents in Brussels. I love biking and visiting you at home by bike, to take care of you and your loved ones.
