What is meant by Ambulatory care or home care?

As the name suggests, home care takes place within your own four walls. In contrast, there is inpatient care in nursing homes. Home care is a collective term for a whole network of help options that help you to be cared for at home.

Most people want to stay within their own four walls. In old age, in particular, you don’t get used to a new environment so quickly. Despite everything, the need for security increases with age. What if I fall and nobody is there? Who will help me in the shower? Relatives are also afraid that their parents will no longer be able to look after them. The very question of whether the elderly mother is taking her important medication is worrying. Let us advise you which help options are available for you and which services are covered by long-term care or health insurance.

Care for your elderly

Some relatives can look after their father or mother who is in need of care and take care of them. However, care has to be learned. Home care by relatives can be exhausting for everyone involved and push you to the physical and mental limit. Our specialist and advice centers for family caregivers and our outpatient care services advise and support you in this.

Who pays for home care?

Apart from home nursing, which is covered by health insurance, long-term care insurance pays for the services provided by a professional nursing service as well as for the care that a relative or a private individual provides. The services can also be combined, so the part is taken over by a nursing service, the other part by the private person. The care fund pays up to a certain maximum amount based on the degree of care. The nursing care fund also pays for other support measures: For example, for nursing courses, housing advice, and care.
