Everything carers need to know about legal support and representation.


A step-by-step approach is recommended in order to preserve the self-determination of the person concerned and offer maximum support.

Information authorization

This is required for consultations in hospital or at a local authority information point and to obtain information and options. This gives you a sound basis for decisions that are made together with the person receiving care.

Power of representation

Allows you to represent the person you care for in dealings with authorities or day-to-day matters such as support requests or subscription changes.

Care contract

Regulates which care and nursing services are to be provided, including remuneration and other details. This ensures that clear agreements are made and misunderstandings, for example with other family members, are avoided.

Special proxy

Authorizes you to take on specific tasks such as managing the bank account or collecting letters from the post office. As a rule, companies require separate documents to be signed.

General power of attorney

Enables you to represent the person being cared for in all legal transactions. This gives you full power of attorney and makes coordination much easier.

Advance care directive

Regulates the procedure if the person receiving care can no longer make decisions themselves, for example due to dementia or an accident.

Living will

Determines whether certain medical measures, such as resuscitation in the event of an emergency hospital admission, should be carried out. This gives you clear instructions and takes the pressure off you in critical moments.

Advance care planning

A continuous arrangement that is often used for palliative care patients to anticipate and, if necessary, exclude treatment courses. This helps you to implement the wishes of the person receiving care in the best possible way.


Regulates the procedure for euthanasia so that the person being cared for can determine under what circumstances they would like help in dying.


Regulates who should receive what after the death of the person receiving care. This prevents inheritance disputes and ensures that the wishes of the deceased person are respected.

The «Plan B» for Carer.

With the emergency plan, you ensure a seamless transition of care and nursing in the event that you are suddenly no longer able to perform these tasks yourself.
