Resolution №859 care on a non-professional basis

Reading time: 3 min.

The implementation of permanent care during the period of martial law in the country has gained more and more popularity because, during active hostilities, the number of people who need outside help is constantly increasing.

However, not every citizen knows that for the provision of permanent care on a non-professional basis, it is possible to receive monetary compensation from the state, which is provided for by the Resolution of the CMU of September 23, 2020 No. 859. This shows the relevance of the chosen topic for today.

Therefore, in this article, we will analyze the provisions of this resolution and determine how monetary compensation can be obtained.

Who is entitled to monetary compensation?

Resolution of the CMU No. 859 stipulates that natural persons who provide social services on a non-professional basis without the ultimate goal of making a profit (that is, do not conduct business activities) have the right to apply to the relevant state authorities for receiving care compensation.

In this context, social services should be understood as the provision of a complex of medical, educational, economic, legal, psychological, and rehabilitation measures aimed at certain social groups of the state's population who are in difficult life circumstances, i.e. cannot take care of themselves due to of appropriate age or the presence of health defects.

Carrying out care on a non-professional basis - this is the provision of social services without proper preparation, training, and compliance with the standards established by the state.

In the vast majority, such services are provided by individuals who live together with their relatives or family members, and thus take care of them, as they have mutual rights and obligations.

In addition, compensation is assigned only for the provision of social services (care) for the following categories of citizens, namely:

  • persons with disabilities in the first group;
  • children with disabilities;
  • persons who have reached an elderly age and have cognitive impairments (in Ukraine, persons who have reached the retirement age are recognized as elderly citizens - at least 60 years old);
  • persons who have incurable diseases (diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, etc.) and because of them do not have the physical ability to take care of themselves;
  • children who do not have an established disability, but are seriously ill (the list of such diseases is approved by the Resolution of the CMU of December 28, 2018 No. 1161).

Importantly! Monetary compensation is not assigned if the citizen in need of assistance is already provided with social services, palliative care, and inpatient care services by other persons.

Also, it is worth noting that if you care for several people at the same time, then in this case you can receive compensation for only one person, and not for all of them at once.
