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

If the patients' own means, plus the HLE, plus the EL are not enough, then the municipality ("Gemeinde") picks up the rest of the tab.
If the Gemeinde has to pick up the rest of the tab, one should be aware that the Gemeinde might have a say in which Altersheim one goes to. Or not.

A friend-of-a-friend (so grain o' salt and all that) was in a private place when after some years the money ran out and she needed Gemeinde help. She had to move to the community Altersheim to receive that financial support.

Another friend-of-a-friend (grain o' salt again) was in the same situation. Her community contributed and allowed her to continue staying in the private place.

As with so much here, different practices in different places and cases. Just make sure you understand what your community typically does - even if you think now that you will never need the financial support.
