How do you get the right to receive personal assistance (The personal assistance entitlement ORDER)?

First, you fill in an application form and submit it to your Department of Social Services.

https://www.gov.si/zbirke/storitve/vloga-za-uveljavljanje-pravice-do-osebne-asistence/

On the basis of your application, the centre appoints a two-member committee to make an expert opinion at your home, which is the basis for the decision on your entitlement to personal assistance. The Disability Protection Coordinator at the Department of Social Services will issue you with a decision on your entitlement to personal assistance, which will state the number of hours and the types of assistance you are entitled to. Once you have received the decision, you choose an institution or association (known as a ‘personal assistance provider’) through which you can arrange for personal assistance to be provided. Together with the provider, you find a suitable personal assistant and work out a plan to cooperate together.

I got entitled to 100 hours of personal assistance a week. What does that mean?

100 hours of personal assistance means you are entitled to 100 hours of help from a personal assistant from Monday to Sunday. You can have two full-time personal assistants (40 hours per week) working with you and one part-time assistant (20 hours per week). Depending on your preferences and needs, the personal assistance coordinator at the chosen provider will prepare a working schedule for your personal assistants.

How am I assigned a personal assistant?

At the Brez Ovir Institute, depending on current needs, we publish a vacancy for a personal assistant, we conduct first interviews with the candidates and refer the selected ones for a second interview with the personal assistance user. Personal assistance user then chooses the most compatible person.

What if I’m not happy with my personal assistant?

If, over time, it becomes clear that the user and the personal assistant no longer wish to work together for any reason, we help you find another person. During the personal assistant’s sick leave or vacation, we organise a replacement.

Is there a charge for personal assistance?

Personal assistance is financed by the state budget, but the user has a legal obligation to to co-finance the personal assistance at the rate of half of the amount of the cash benefit received as a result of the need for foreign care and assistance.

What documents do I need to submit to my chosen Personal Assistance Provider?

The documents that the user submits to the personal assistance provider are:

– The personal assistance entitlement order
– personal assistance form

Who makes the work programme plan?

It is made by the personal assistance provider together with the user. It is a document that defines how the assistance is to be implemented in the user’s home. It must be submitted by the provider to the competent Department of Social Services. The user signs a cooperation agreement with the provider, which defines the rights and obligations of both parties. The user signs an annex to the agreement with the chosen personal assistant.

I also need training to get personal assistance. How much does it cost?

The user completes the Introductory Training on Personal Assistance, which is required by the Personal Assistance Act. The basic content of the training covers the meaning of personal assistance, the legal basis, communication between participants and the code of ethics. It is provided free of charge by the provider.

Can you organise the whole holiday for me?
