Substitute for a carer looking after a family member

Substitute for a carer looking after a family member

The purpose of the substitute service for a carer looking after a family member is to support the coping ability of a carer of an adult with a need for significant care by providing them with short-term leave and free time.

 

The substitute service for a carer looking after a family member ensures the care and supervision of a person with a need for significant care at their home. The carer is substituted primarily in terms of care procedures, such as getting dressed, eating, using care equipment and hygiene procedures.

  The service will only be provided if both the carer and the person they are taking care of reside in Tallinn according to the Population Registry. The service will be provided for one person for 2 hours minimum and 16 hours maximum per month (including up to 30 minutes of commuting time for the carer) at the home of the person they are taking care of.
