Service Description

A person who can no longer manage his or her own affairs due to illness or age can be provided by the care court with a caregiver. The caregiver can act for the person in need of help in areas determined by the care court, so-called task circles, and also legally represent the person in need, if necessary.
 
The majority of care in Schleswig-Holstein are run on a voluntary basis. This means that relatives or acquaintances of the person in need of help or committed citizens or bruges take on the role of the caregiver. You will not receive any remuneration for this. However, they are paid a lump-sum expense allowance.

As a volunteer supervisor, you have certain tasks and duties. You must take into account the wishes and interests of the person in need of help in your work for the person in need. You must also report to the care court at certain intervals about your work for the person in need.
 
After the order by the care court, you will receive a supervisor's card. On this occasion, the judicial officers of the care court will inform you about your tasks and duties as a voluntary supervisor. Later, you can also contact the care court with questions about your work as a volunteer supervisor.
