Caring for Relatives

Reconciling Work, Study and Care

Long-term care is something anyone may need one day and this can be any time! And it is not only for parents who are increasingly displaying serious signs of aging in the long-term care, but it can also fall upon the partner or the child – by means of a serious accident, through disability or a chronic illness.

For this reason, it is important not to limit the concept of family to families with children. Because employees and students of the TU Clausthal also increasingly face the difficult issue of keeping the balance between their tasks in the work or study place and the care and support of their relatives.

While the motivations to take over the home care for a close relative can be varied and the decision can well deserve recognition, they still need to be carefully considered because this process is equally difficult for everyone involved, and can drag on for years.

What to do if the need for care occurs in the family? – take a look at the following guide of the Federal Ministry of Health and the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.

Important legal information about the law of guardianship, the Patient Decree and Care Power of the Attorney can be found on the site of the Federal Ministry of Family, Seniors, Women and Youth. Likewise, important information about the Patient disposal.

Do you have specific questions about Family Care Leave, Care Leave Act, or Leave of Absence from Study? For this purpose, please contact the Family Service Agency, your Human Resources Administrator at the TU Clausthal, or the Student Administration.
