What is and how does the program work?
Home Care Premium is the home care program provided by Social Institute for people who are recognized as not self-sufficient. The objective of the service is to intervene in the socio-assistance sphere of the beneficiaries and prevent their cognitive impairment.
The program is aimed at public employees and pensioners, who can request the benefit for themselves or for relatives and first-degree custody who are not self-sufficient. Specifically, the contribution is paid, in addition to public employees and pensioners, in favor of:
- relatives and relatives of first degree;
- subjects linked by civil union;
- minors orphans of civil servants (belonging to the Unitary Management of credit and social benefits) and of public pensioners;
- brothers or sisters of the right holder, provided that he is their guardian or curator.
The beneficiaries of the Home Care Premium program obtain an economic contribution aimed at reimbursing the costs incurred for hiring with a regular employment contract and the monthly payment of a home assistant. Personal assistance services are also provided as supplementary services, which are provided by bodies affiliated with Social Institute.
