Professional care: district invites you to an information event

The Waldeck-Frankenberg district health service is looking for independent professional carers to support people who are unable to manage their own affairs due to various impairments. The specialist health service will be providing information on exactly what this role entails and what requirements must be met at two further information events on 10 April in the Frankenberg monastery and on 16 April in the community centre in Bad Arolsen - both from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm.

Whether it's dealing with correspondence, dealing with the authorities or managing and organising finances: Sometimes people with a mental illness or due to a mental or physical impairment need support in carrying out their everyday tasks. This is where independent professional carers come in. They are appointed by the court and help the person concerned to cope with their everyday life. The professional carer can organise their working hours as they wish and therefore carry out their work alongside another job and in harmony with family life. This is because the carer also determines the scope of their work. At the same time, the court remunerates the carer for their work.

On 10 April in Frankenberg and 16 April in Bad Arolsen, the specialist health service will provide information on the basic requirements that must be met in order to become a professional carer. All interested parties are cordially invited to a non-binding exchange at the Frankenberg monastery (Bahnhofstr. 12) and the community centre in Bad Arolsen (Rathausstr. 3). Registration is not required and the event is free of charge. Further information on self-employment as a legal professional carer is also available on the district's website at
