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

They are not as expensive as 6000 CHF. Around 3500 CHF was a start price for a room,food in Zürich. The KK pays to a large extent any extra nursing.
I think you're mistaken, omtatsat. Or do you really know of an old-age nursing home that is cheaper than those run by the City of Zurich?

From the link to the City of Zurich’s municipal old-age nursing homes:

Care costs
60 x 14 days = 840
45 x 16 days = 720

Self-pay
30 x 21.60 = 648

Depending on whether the room is single or shared, with or without its own bathroom, the cost ranges from
Room and food 130 x 30 days = 3’900
up to
Room and food 200 x 30 days = 6’000

That’s
840 + 720 + 648 + 3’900 = 6’108
up to
840 + 720 + 648 + 6’000 = 8’208

before any of the additional charges are added.


Additional charges include, for example,
  • a fee for the staff member accompanying the patient to external appointments such as doctors or dentists, or to a hairdresser or lawyer
  • the haircut itself also charged to the patient,
  • a separate fee for the transport to and from such appointments,
  • telephone costs,
  • any extras consumed in the institution's restaurant,
  • errands such as getting shoes repaired,
  • any nursing or products deemed not to be covered by the medical insurance, which may include materials for bandaging, or a better type of product such as diapers, when only the basic one is covered.
