1000 euros per year – care check is the first project under black and blue


1000 euros per year – care check is the first project under black and blue

The first concrete measure has been taken 48 hours after the black-blue government in Lower Austria was sworn in: people in need of care from care allowance level three who are cared for at home must receive 1,000 euros per year. The budget is 47 million euros per year.

Under the principle of “at home then stationary”, the state governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner (ÖVP) and the deputy state secretary Udo Landbauer (FPÖ) want to support care within their own four walls with the care voucher. The two will announce this in a broadcast on Saturday. With the care thousand, those affected should be able to finance additional services in addition to the health care allowance. They want to distinguish themselves from the Burgland model, under which informal carers can be employed by the state. According to the Court of Audit Burgenland, it is used by only 188 people. Significantly more Lower Austrians should benefit from the care thousands, Mikl-Leitner and Landbauer emphasized. A social scale needs to be worked out.

Swipe against SPÖ
“A measure with which we can reach 47,000 people in Lower Austria and which was not feasible with the SPÖ,” Mikl-Leitner said in the broadcast. The care voucher is also a contribution to the fight against inflation for Deputy Governor Udo Landbauer: “We stand for a care network in Lower Austria that receives everyone who needs care and does not allow injustice. Lower Austria must become the best care country. With the care voucher, we support precisely those compatriots who need help.”
