How do I apply for home care service?

The City of Copenhagen considers it essential to support citizens to help themselves, so they can manage as many everyday chores as possible

When you apply for home care  you will get a visit from a social worker who, in cooporation  with you, will assess your need for help. Together  you will set goals for  which  tasks you will be able to eventually  perform fully or partially. This way you will be  involved in the process of developing and maintaining your skills.

If you are in a situation where you are not able to take care of yourself, you will  be granted help.

You can receive home care regarding :

  • Training
  • Practical help
  • Delivery of food
  • Personal hygiene
  • Home nursing
  • Temporary residential care

The home care  is free of charge. There are fees  for services such as delivery of food, laundry and general household items and for food during temporary stay in residential institutions.

Whether and how much help you can receive and how to apply  depends on whether you are older or younger than 65.
