Finally, there is Disability Assistance at home ( Jan 2012 )

It took them a while to catch up with other nations ( Scandinavia, the United States, Britain and the Netherlands, for example ) but better late than never I suppose.

An assistance policy rolled out nationally from January 1 is a blessing that has been a long time coming for Swiss families affected by disability.

In many cases the assistant, who will be paid around SFr32 per hour, will be called upon to perform the most intimate of tasks – changing sanitary items, toilet duties, showering, dressing.
