With adults 65+ expected to make up 30% of Germany’s population by 2050, Long Term Care (LTC) consistently remains a topic of social conversation and focus in Germany.  The pending impact of the country’s ageing population prompted the Social Dependency Insurance Act of 26 May 1994 making it compulsory for people to subscribe to Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCI).  On the heels of  implementation of the home care portion of this act, the number of home-based care providers has significantly grown in Germany.  That said, LTCI in Germany is devised to care for basic activities of daily living, putting Right at Home in an advantageous position to offer respite and full-continuum care to the ageing population of Germany.
