In compliance with the social service law, the care allowance belongs to people who primarily due to their unfavourable state of health are dependent on other person’s care and is intended for the provision of this care. The procedure assessing the degree of the applicant’s dependence, which precedes the decision on the care-allowance granting, is relatively complicated and implies two risks: 1/ granting the allowance to a person who does not need it (i.e. waste of funds); 2/ not granting the allowance to a person who is really dependent on other people’s assistance, which results in worsening the dependent person’s care and quality of life.
