Luitgard graduated as a medical doctor from the Faculty of Medicine of Mainz University, Germany and has experiences in paediatrics, surgery, anaesthesiology and general practice. She worked in Germany, the United Kingdom, and South Africa and volunteered in India.
Luitgard’s mission is to provide her customers with the highest quality health and well-being service and first aid training in English in a non-English speaking environment.
HEALTHY AND SAFE AWAY FROM HOME was originally founded to provide the international community in Switzerland with the best possible first aid training in English by offering a programme accredited by the Swiss authorities and at the same time understanding the need of customers to transfer knowledge and skills to countries across the globe. Being a small company HEALTHY AND SAFE AWAY FROM HOME is able to offer courses designed to suit customers’ needs.
HEALTHY AND SAFE AWAY FROM HOME has been providing first aid training and health presentations to the international community in Switzerland for more than 10 years. Luitgard provides a friendly environment with lots of practical exercises, role-play and scenarios. Customers leave her courses feeling confident about their first aid abilities and prepared to help in an emergency.
Luitgard is committed to always being up-to-date on new developments, not only in resuscitation and emergency care. As a medical professional it is her passion to raise awareness on health and well-being related topics. It was therefore a small step to add further qualifications in health and well-being to her portfolio.
All programmes are science and evidence based and promote positive health and well-being. Luitgard supports businesses, who are thinking about their employees’ health and well-being, in setting up effective well-being programmes. A workplace environment that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle leads to increased job satisfaction and employee productivity and decreased sickness absence. Health screening, educational awareness programmes, ergonomic workplace assessments, or individual health coaching: Luitgard helps businesses create and develop the programme best for their employees.
