Re: Does your Krankenkasse help finance your stay in a retirement home?

Well I donít know anyone who did it by choice! Iíd say it comes down to a situation where there is no other choice usually due to health reasons.
The paradox, in Switzerland, is that because the financing comes from so many different sources, and their rules are different for living "at home" or living "in a home", some people end up not being able to afford to live at home, given the level of care they need.

The absolute costs of their living in a home are often much higher than the costs would be of providing them nursing and care in their own homes, but the funding is provided only for the institutional variation. It's a crazy situation.
