About Cordaan

Cordaan aims to help anyone in need of care, support or assistance. Elderly people with dementia or physical ailments, children and adults with learning disabilities and people with mental health problems. Descent, religion, age or nature of the disability don’t play a role; these differences add colour to Cordaan.

Cordaan provides care and assistance on a small scale in and around various locations, and in the community, at home or ‘just like home’ wherever possible. We are committed to stimulating people’s abilities, and respect and admire people’s right to be independent and make their own choices. Everyone must be able to lead the life they choose, in their own familiar surroundings for as long as possible. When this becomes a problem, they must have the option of moving to a safe, friendly care location. Key words that define Cordaan’s core values are: colourful, stimulating, familiar, friendly, caring and nearby.

Cordaan provides care to around 20,000 people in 120 locations in every district of Amsterdam and Diemen, as well as in Huizen and Nieuw-Vennep. We do this with a staff of almost 6,000 employees and more than 2,500 volunteers, in association with informal carers and care professionals, research institutes and numerous social organisations. In its capacity as one of the largest care organisations in Amsterdam, Cordaan aspires to lead the way in developing long-term care in the country’s capital.

Cordaan staff are professional, enjoy their work and feel appreciated for their commitment, involvement and attentive care.
