Night home care for the dying

Night home care for the dying involves the provision of support in the evening and night-time hours for people in their last stage of life and their relatives.


The volunteers will not perform any medical or nursing activities or heavy domestic work. However, they will be able to help with personal care, reading or monitoring. Night home care gives relatives the opportunity to rest or to get a good night's sleep.

Maximum rates for a non-contracted care provider

If, for care included in the public healthcare insurance, you choose a healthcare provider with whom we have not made any agreements, the rates in the Rate list for non-contracted care will apply. Do the rates charged by the non-contracted healthcare provider exceed our maximum rates? In that case, the difference will be payable by you. This will apply for reimbursement both under the public healthcare insurance, and the supplementary insurance.
