At the heart of claims by the Federal Association of professional caregivers (BdB), whose targeting of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin to end went, are funding the actually necessary working time per client, an increase in the remuneration at least 50.00 net per hour and recognition of work done as a profession, as a qualification for a master’s degree must be demonstrated. Wage increase indirectly reach the social politician and member of the Berlin Government left, Minka Dott, is, however, given the budgetary constraints not Possibility for an increase in the remuneration. She wanted are struggling however to change the care hours, to get a pay rise by this indirect route”. So far the legislators for the legal assistance per client provides only two to three hours enough for tasks such as accounting, correspondence with social services or care funds and the personal care of needy people, for whom the professional carers employed by the care judges care. working time per month.

Therefore, according to the politicians on the BdB event, the generalization in favor of individual solutions should be abolished.
