There are not a few workers who have to take care of elderly parents who need supervision and care. To these are added those who help a disabled family member in carrying out daily actions. But it is not always possible to reconcile working hours with the needs of the person who is no longer autonomous. And there are many care workers who work alongside family members every day to provide for the needs of the non self-sufficient relative.
In fact, in some cases it is possible to request carers’ allowances also for elderly people with these difficulties and not only for walking problems. In fact, sometimes the patient presents with behavioral disorders or neurogenerative diseases. In the presence of Alzheimer’s disease, it is often not prudent to leave the person alone at home. Hence the need for continuous assistance even during the night.
The government allocates funds to support families which bear the costs of carers and specialized operators. In particular, the INPS check of 1,800 euros for these family members and caregivers starts from January 2022 with Law 104. In addition, over 350 euros are due from the Revenue Agency for assistance to non self-sufficient relatives with incomes of up to 40,000.
With the arrival of state contributions, it is therefore possible to ensure care and standards of well-being above all for taxpayers in financial difficulties. Often the amount of the pension of the non-self-employed elderly person is not sufficient to pay the costs of home care. And where it is not possible to hire carers, the relatives themselves provide for the basic needs of the disabled person or parent. Fortunately, with Law 104, checks of various amounts for 36 months also arrive to non-cohabiting family members.

On the other hand, those who, due to work commitments, cannot take care of the family member must necessarily turn to external help. Therefore he must stipulate a contract with operators or carers who take care of the needs of the disabled on a daily basis. In such cases it is possible to take advantage of the 19% deduction on the monthly costs of home care. However, this is within a maximum expenditure ceiling of 2,100 euros and with incomes not exceeding 40,000 euros.
On the official portal of the Revenue Agency, the other conditions that give access to the tax concession are specified. First of all, it is necessary to present documentation certifying the payment of the services by the operator who assists the disabled person. Furthermore, it is necessary to present a medical certificate relating to the condition of non self-sufficiency of the applicant.
Finally, it should be borne in mind that the deduction is due only in the case in which the non self-sufficiency is strictly connected to the presence of a pathology. Therefore, if you make payments up to € 2,100, you will be entitled to a refund of approximately € 399.
