Highly qualified staff

Moving to another country is a big step for everyone. It is especially difficult if you can not communicate in your own language. But do not worry about it. Close to the German border, all our houses not only comply with German standards, but also have German-speaking staff. You can learn the local-spoken language of the country if you wish, but you will always be able to hear and speak German everywhere.

Trial Stay

Trial Stay

For many elderly people moving to a nursing home is a very stressful situation. Often this dramatic involvement is experienced as a major loss of independence and for many represents a massive change in the living situation. For this reason, we offer you the opportunity to try your stay. Convince yourself in person about the many advantages of our houses: either during a tour of the house or during a non-binding trial stay. You move into a room and explore all benefits: having dinner in a friendly atmosphere, relaxing on the terrace or participating on adventurous excursions. So not only can you experience something new, but you may also discover your future retirement home. We have prepared special trial rates for you.

Stress-free move

Insurance options

Insurance options

Health insurance, long-term care insurance and supplementary care insurance play a major role in the care of the elderly. Since January of 2017, in order to receive care benefits, one of the five levels of care must be eligible. The degree of care required is decisive for the benefits paid by the care fund.

 

In this case, if it is decided to move abroad, all cash benefits from long-term care insurance are covered by the EU Social Benefits Export Regulations. After moving to another EU country, you are entitled to all benefits provided for in the host country’s social system. The benefit entitlements to the German long-term care insurance depend on the period of time spent by the patient abroad and on whether the country is inside or outside the EU.

  • Wenn Sie einen festen Wohnsitz in Deutschland haben, können Sie bei einem vorübergehenden Auslandsaufenthalt von bis zu sechs Wochen Pflegeleistungen in Anspruch nehmen. Die Pflegeversicherung übernimmt Ihre Kosten dafür. Normalerweise übernimmt die Pflegeversicherung auch die Kosten für die Leistungen, die durch die Pflegekraft erbracht werden. Im Voraus muss man die Einzelheiten dazu mit Ihrer Pflegeversicherung abklären. Die Leistungsansprüche für einen Aufenthalt bis zu sechs Wochen erhalten Sie in jedem Land der Welt.

 

  • Bei einem dauerhaften Auslandsaufenthalt mit Pflege in EU-Ländern erhalten Sie zwar keine Pflegesachleistungen, es wird Ihnen aber das Pflegegeld zur Verfügung gestellt. Sobald die Behörden davon ausgehen, dass es sich um einen gewöhnlichen Aufenthalt im EU-Ausland handelt, können sich Pflegebedürftige jedoch entscheiden, ob Sie Pflegesachleistungen oder Sachleistungen bei Krankheit nach dem Recht des Wohnortstaats oder das Pflegegeld nach dem SGB XI von der deutschen Pflegekasse in Anspruch nehmen möchten. Die Voraussetzungen für den Erhalt des Pflegegeldes im EU-Ausland sind, dass Sie in Deutschland krankenversichert sind und dass Sie einen anerkannten Pflegegrad haben. Sollten Sie noch keinen Pflegegrad haben, sollten Sie einen beantragen.

 

  • Bei einem längeren Aufenthalt außerhalb der EU-Länder können keine Leistungen der Pflegeversicherung in Anspruch genommen werden. In diesem Fall werden die Leistungen der Pflegeversicherung eingestellt.

 

Altersrente im Ausland
Seit dem 1. Oktober 2013 wird die Altersrente ungekürzt auch im Ausland ausgezahlt, egal in welches Land Sie den Wohnsitz verlegen.Um Sie zu entlasten und den Übertritt so leicht wie möglich zu machen, übernehmen wir den Großteil der administrativen Aufgaben, z.B. mit den Krankenkassen und der Wohnsitzanmeldung.

  • If you have a permanent residence in Germany, you can receive up to six weeks of care benefits for a temporary stay abroad. The long-term care insurance covers your costs. Usually the long-term care insurance also covers the costs of the services provided by the caregiver. In advance you have to clarify the details with your long-term care insurance. Benefits for a stay of up to six weeks are available in every country in the world.

 

  • In the case of a permanent stay including care in EU countries, you will not receive any nursing salary, but the care allowance will be provided to you. However, as soon as the authorities assume that this is a habitual residence in another EU country, people in need of care may decide whether they like to make use of benefits-in-kind, or of non-cash benefit under the law of the country of residence, or of the care allowance under SGB XI from the nursing insurance fund. The prerequisites for receiving the care allowance in other EU countries are that you have health insurance in Germany and that you have an eligible level of care. If you do not have a level of care, you should apply for one.

 

  • For longer stays outside the EU countries, no long-term care benefits can be claimed. In this case, the benefits of the long-term care insurance are discontinued.

 

Retirement pension abroad
Since October 1, 2013, the retirement pension is also paid out in full, no matter which country you move to. To relieve you and make the transfer as easy as possible, we do most of the administrative work, such as taking care of the health insurance and residence registration.
