Persons wishing to receive support from a carer who do not meet the conditions listed below can contact the Office for the Elderly and Social Support of City Hall, or a personal care services company accredited by the Director of Health Affairs.
Understanding the process
This service allows elderly people or people with a temporary or permanent disability to remain in their own home thanks to the support of a carer to help them with various day-to-day tasks.
To be eligible for a carer you must:
- Be resident in the Principality of Monaco
- Be over 60 years of age
Coverage may be granted through the autonomy allowance if the applicant for care is registered for a support plan recommended by the Monaco Gerontology Coordination Centre. The amount varies depending on the household’s income
People aged over 60 who have experienced a loss of independence can contact the Monaco Gerontology Coordination Centre (CCGM) which will conduct an at-home independence assessment and, if necessary, propose care services and assist in preparing the application for the autonomy allowance based on the required proof of income documents.
