Traduction en anglais : Day care as part of a comprehensive service structure after introduction of the German Long-Term-Care-Insurance.
Detailed time protocols based on direct observation as well as socio-demographic and morbidity-related data were collected in Day-Care-Facilities for the Aged and the Handicapped (Tagespflege), in order to gain information regarding the users and the service activities of these institutions.
Women aged 80 years and over constitute the main users ; they use the facilities between 8 am and 4.30 pm in most cases.
The analysis of employee activities showed that roughly one quarter of the time was spent on specific services of such facilities, e.g. group activities, individual activating therapy of patients.
Should Day-Care-Facilities play an (increasingly) important role in the domestic social service provision for the aged and the handicapped, the financing of their costs (on the average DM 88 per day, not counting transportation cost) must be reconsidered.
