In France the children have to contribute if they are higher earners, I think this is correct way.

In Switzerland, it is very much, as most things, C/Kantonal. My neighbour in NE from Bern, who mother was in a care home in Bern- was so worried he would have to sel his own family home to pay for her care when her own money run out. 'Fortunately' she died before that happened. In NE, people have to use savings, pensions and proceeds from house, and then the Canton picks up the bill when all but pensions run out- but leave a sum for children to share. From top of head, I think it is about 25.000 each, to be shared with children. My parents' savings and proceeds of the family home all went to pay for their care. Same for my mil in the UK. I agree with FMF.
