Offers for support in everyday life; application for a grant
Offers of support in everyday life in accordance with Section 45a of the German Social Code (SGB XI) are intended to provide hourly relief for people in need of care and their family caregivers. The Free State of Bavaria supports these services together with the umbrella organization of the long-term care insurance funds. Sponsors of recognized offers of support in everyday life can receive a grant within the framework of project funding.
By offering support in everyday life, an additional range of services is to be created for those in need of care in home care from care level 1. Up to 125 euros per month can be used as a uniform relief amount for quality-assured care and relief services. The aim is to relieve the person in need of care in their everyday life as well as caregiving relatives and similarly close persons of the care and the associated physical and emotional burdens.
