Age-related limitations, health problems or simply the current family situation can cause older persons or their relatives to require short- or long-term assistance with everyday needs.
Spitex provides assistance and nursing care in your home if you have health problems or are convalescing, for example, from a serious illness or an accident. You need a doctor’s order to ensure that the health insurance will pay for the Spitex services.
