Families of informal care customers can receive discretionary care and support to help them cope with the informal care situation. Discretionary care and support are provided at home or in a unit outside the home.
Discretionary care includes part-time care, short-term care, home-help services and day activities. We will decide on discretionary care.
If you are interested in discretionary care and support for informal care, please contact your designated worker.
Part-time care means that the care receiver spends the day or night in a care home or assisted living facility. Together with their designated worker, the informal care family assesses whether the family needs part-time care. We can grant care as needed, but no more than six times per month. Part-time care is subject to a charge.
In short-term care, the care receiver spends several days in a care home or assisted living facility. Short-term care is provided in the city’s own or private care homes or assisted living facilities.
Together with their designated worker, the informal care family assesses whether the family needs short-term care. We can grant short-term care as needed and at our discretion. Short-term care is subject to a charge.
The informal care home-help service allows informal caregivers to take some time off, tend to their affairs and enjoy recreational activities. The maximum allocation of the home-help service is eight hours per month. You should book the home-help visit in good time.
A home helper of informal care comes to take care of the care receiver at their home. The home helper aids in, for example, eating, going to the toilet and outdoor activities. The home helper does not administer medication or do household chores.
The home-help service is free of charge.
