Low-threshold care services: recognition and promotion - from service providers

Currently, about 2/3 patients in Lower Saxony are cared for and cared for in their own homes by outpatient care services or by relatives.
Low-threshold care services ensure temporary supervision and care for these people (Section 45 c (3) SGB XI). The aim of the temporary supervision and care is to relieve the burden on carers.
The care is provided - on the basis of nursing guidance by specialists - by volunteers; it can be done at home in individual care, but alternatively also outside the home environment in groups. In addition, services are also provided in day care and in the context of family-relieving services. The target group of the offers includes people with

  • dementia disabilities,
  • intellectual disability or
  • mental illness,


if these people are restricted in their everyday competence due to the disease and there is an increased need for supervision and care as a result. This applies in the presence of a care level, but also if the extent of care level I is not reached (so-called "care level 0").


a) Recognition as a provider of low-threshold care

b) Promotion of recognised offers


Recognised offers may be submitted upon request for the

  • coordination and organisation of aid,
