The net benefit of home support to psychiatric patients could reach € 6.050 per year per patient. The benefits are highest when a moderate-intensive form of home support is used for people who have serious problems.

Home support aims to assist vulnerable citizens in society in the structuring of daily life and to increase their own self-reliance in a practical and accessible way. Home support tries to bring peace, order and regularity to people who have lost control over their lives. The target group consists of people with mental health, psychosocial and / or psychiatric problems, worrying care avoiders and those who due to loss of physical ability have to cope with major changes in daily life.
