Social assistance: help with care Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Anyone in need of care can apply for help with care.

Anyone who is in need of care, receives no or no sufficient benefits from his care fund and does not have sufficient income and assets to cover their needs independently, can receive benefits of help for care in the home or in a nursing home. The benefits of assistance for care are subordinate to the benefits of other social service providers (such as nursing care funds, health insurance companies, pension insurance institutions, employment agency, accident insurance institutions).

Persons in need of care and thus entitled to benefits are persons who have health-related impairments of independence or abilities and cannot independently compensate for physical, cognitive or psychological impairments or health-related stresses or requirements.

The help includes:

  • Home care
  • Services in outpatient assisted living groups,
  • Aid
  • Semi-inpatient care,
  • short-term care,
  • Preventive care and
  • inpatient care.

All proof of income and assets, proof of long-term care.

§§ 61 to 66 Social Code (SGB) Twelfth Book (XII) - Social Assistance.
