Home care support

One of the long-term care insurance system's guiding principles is to prioritise home accommodation as opposed to accommodation in an assisted living facility.

This choice stems from a desire to allow everyone to live comfortably in their own home for as long as possible. To that end, long-term care insurance provides for the following benefits:

  • benefits in kind;
  • cash benefits;
  • a lump sum for incontinence products;
  • assistive technology;
  • home adaptations;
  • pension contributions for caregivers.
