The government’s position is that “the effort of people ready to take care of an ailing family member at home must be appreciated”, the statement said. The ministry noted that “unlike the austerity of (earlier) left-liberal governments” the incumbent government has raised home care fees by 63% since 2010.
They added that the government has also arranged that a social security tax should be deducted from the fees, ensuring a higher pension for recipients.
Currently people in charge of sick family members receive a monthly net amount between 29,340 and 52,812 forints (EUR 90-162) from state coffers.
