Das Dritte Pflegestärkungsgesetz (PSG III) stärkt die Pflegeberatung in den Kommunen. Pflegebedürftige und ihre Angehörigen erhalten dadurch eine Beratung aus einer Hand. Außerdem werden die Kontrollen verschärft, um Pflegebedürftige, ihre Familien und die Pflegekräfte besser vor betrügerischen Pflegediensten zu schützen.

The PSG III strengthens the network for long-term care consultation in the municipalities and communities. People in need of care and their families and caregivers will therefore have a didcated source to turn to for consultation about care needs. Furthermore, stricter controls will be put in place to protect people receiving long-term care from fraudulent practices and exploitation by care providers.
