Care: Residential care allowance

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Residential care allowance is a resident-related subsidy for the investment costs of full inpatient care. It is granted to the providers of full inpatient care facilities for residents in need of care whose income and assets are insufficient to finance the investment costs. An income limit applies. In this way, residents in need of care in nursing homes with low incomes and low assets are relieved of the investment costs.
The amount of the care home allowance depends in particular on the investment costs of the care home and the income and asset situation of the resident in need of care. A maximum of 15.35 euros per day can be granted in care home allowance.
The provider of the care facility must apply for the grant from the responsible district or independent city. The consent of the resident in need of care is required for the application. Documents relating to income and assets can be sent separately to the approval authority or enclosed with the application from the care facility in a sealed envelope. In certain cases, the application for care home allowance can also be submitted by the person in need of care themselves.
Nursing home allowance is only paid for residents in need of care in care facilities for whom a social welfare provider in Schleswig-Holstein already bears the costs of social welfare or would have to bear them if they were in need of social welfare.
