The government announces 400 million euros for the “old age”


The government will release in 2022 “more than 400 million euros” of new funding for assistance to the elderly, notably via the creation of posts in nursing homes and a “floor price” to better remunerate home interventions, announced this Thursday Jean Castex. Of this total, 240 million euros will be directed to home help services: while currently the care differs from one department to another, providers will now receive at least 22 euros per hour of intervention, everywhere in France, specified the Prime Minister during a speech in Autun (Saône-et-Loire).

This “minimum public funding”, or “floor price”, aims to “secure” home services and “redress an inequity,” said the head of government, who visited a 95-year-old lady in the morning. benefiting from this type of intervention, in a small Burgundy village. Currently, “more than half of the hours worked (…) are paid below this level” of 22 euros, pointed out Jean Castex, accompanied by his ministers of Health and Solidarity, Olivier Véran, and autonomy, Brigitte Bourguignon .

10,000 more caregivers within five years

In addition to this floor price, home help services will be able to claim additional funding of three euros per hour, if they engage in a “quality approach”, for example by providing services in the evening and on weekends, or by offering training to their employees. The government has also “santuarized” in the 2022 budget of the Secu of funding to increase the workforce in accommodation establishments for dependent elderly people (Ehpad), announced Jean Castex, who spoke after visiting one of the of these structures in Autun.

The objective is to reach 10,000 additional nursing posts “within five years”. Including the 10,000 additional jobs already funded since 2017, the increase in nursing staff will therefore reach 10% between 2017 and 2025, according to him. The government will also introduce a “new system of remuneration for home nursing care”, so that the professionals concerned “can spend more time” with the elderly, generalize the on-call of night nurses in all nursing homes, and ensure the presence of a coordinating doctor at least two days a week in all structures.

Home care services will also benefit from dedicated funding to set up a “single point of entry” so that families no longer have to manage the “administrative burden” of coordinating the various interventions.
