Day care for those with statutory long-term care insurance

The day care is intended to accompany the home care. You can take advantage of day care services if home care cannot be sufficiently ensured or if this is necessary to supplement or strengthen home care.

Day care is usually used by people in need of care whose relatives work during the day. Those in need of care are usually picked up in the morning and returned home in the afternoon.

Within the framework of the maximum benefit amounts, the nursing care fund assumes the care-related expenses, including the expenses for care, and the expenses for the medical treatment care services necessary in the institution. The costs for accommodation and meals as well as separately calculable investment costs, on the other hand, must in principle be borne privately.

The maximum benefit amount for includes monthly

  • for care level 2: 689 euros,
  • for care level 3: 1,298 euros,
  • for care level 4: 1,612 euros and
  • for care level 5: 1,995 euros.

Persons with care level 1 can use their relief contribution (up to 125 euros) for day care.

Semi-inpatient care also includes the necessary transport of those in need of care from the home to the day care facility and back.

Persons in need of care levels 2 to 5 can make use of semi-inpatient day and night care in addition to outpatient care benefits in kind, care allowance or the combination benefit according to § 38, without any credit being made to these claims.
