11 – Full-time nursing care

Fact sheet no. 11

If home or outpatient nursing care is no longer sufficient, it may become necessary to move to a nursing home. Full-time nursing care is mainly used by people who are in need of care in the sense of the nursing care law and who have been classified into a nursing care level for inpatient care.

There are facilities that offer special assistance for people with needs in care and supervision, e.g. for people with dementia, comatose patients, or those with special diseases.
