Has your child suddenly become ill or are they not yet well enough to return to their usual routine? Do you need to go away for a couple of hours and there is no one who can take over care duties at home? You can make use of professional and tender care for sick children at home: Since 2013, specially trained child minders from "genau jetzt!“ have been taking care of sick children in their homes in Graz and Kumberg.
The association Verein KiB – children care organises an “emergency mum” who takes over care duties at home - she is available day and night, and can be contacted under 0664/620 30 40. The association provides families with sick children with both practical and political support. Parents can ring a hotline for information. Members of the association are allocated a mentor and can even be provided with financial support.
Children with disabilities and those recovering from a serious illness can enjoy a free holiday at Kumplgut. Even when your child’s treatment finished several years ago, it is still possible to have a holiday there.
