Principle and conditions

Anyone aged over 60 who is habitually resident in the Principality or in a care home operated by the Princess Grace Hospital geriatric care department and has suffered a loss of autonomy due to their physical or mental condition may apply for the autonomy allowance.

A patient contribution is calculated on the basis of income. This determines the amount of the autonomy allowance for full or partial coverage of either a home help package or nursing care costs, up to the ceilings set out by ministerial decree according to the level of autonomy (G.I.R. scale) and a maximum hourly rate.

Support for daily living expenses and coverage of the cost of equipment and consumables may also be granted to beneficiaries of this allowance.

The allowance is paid monthly, to the beneficiary or to the care home, covering between 10% and 100% of costs subject to the established ceilings and the patient contribution.

1

Obtaining and completing the form

The application should be collected by the applicant or his/her family from the Gerontological Coordination Centre (11, bd du Jardin Exotique), which is responsible for evaluating the degree of loss of autonomy.

2

Submitting the application

The application should be submitted to the Gerontological Coordination Centre.

The Centre then assesses the extent of the loss of autonomy, develops an assistance plan and puts together the financial package.

Once the personal contribution (ticket modérateur) and allowance have been calculated, the allowance is paid directly to the beneficiary.
