Home adaptations

The long-term care insurance can contribute to the costs of home adaptations 'enabling the person to remain or become more independent when it comes to personal hygiene, preparing meals and mobility inside and outside the home'.

Home adaptations will only be covered after prior approval by the State Office for Assessment and Monitoring of the long-term care insurance (Administration d'évaluation et de contrôle AEC). The coverage may not exceed EUR 28,000. As is the case for assistive technology, the long-term care insurance provider may cover the cost of home adaptations for persons who do not reach the 3.5-hour threshold for activities of daily living (ADLs), provided that they can demonstrate a significant and regular need for assistance in the category of activities mentioned above, owing to an illness or deficiency lasting more than 6 months.
