In 1969, the nonprofit association Notmütterdienst (NMD) was
founded. Today, the federal organisation is run from
Frankfurt. There are now branches in Berlin, Hamburg and
more recently in Koblenz.
The NMD provides child-care and household, for example, if
suddenly a parent falls ill, the mother must have a cure,
parents just want to vacation without children, etc.
In addition to that staff support for needy families caring
for elderly or frail people has become a second focal point.
The nonprofit organization provides help where it is needed,
namely at home, by the hour as well as round the clock.
Many families and seniors do not realize that this is
possible, they do not very often know that health insurance,
social services or insurance in particular, often take over
the costs. These are also usually cheaper than the cost of a
dormitory room. The NMD also provides advice to the
Especially the needs and wishes of elderly and sick people
are not often considered in our society, but everyone is
entitled to lead a dignified life in old age with the
greatest possible self-determination. For the employees in
the association home care in contrast to nursing homes
has the absolute priority.
In order to reach this aim the NMD fights every day by
leading consultations with stakeholders and encourage social
contacts with town halls, offices and insurance companies.
The first caregivers who in the seventies were included in a
file with plug-in cards were mostly elderly women. After
their children were grown and out of the house, the spouse
perhaps died, they wanted to give her life a new meaning,
coupled with an additional income for a small pension.
Today, the family-care workers are still experienced ladies
(and some men) of all ages, as well as professionals and
students, who are engaged in round the clock care. There are
now several hundred persons who are constantly working
nationwide, and the NMD is always looking for new labour
forces. Applicants must have a good intuition, experience
in family-work and they should be happy to engage socially.
Unlike many patient care services, it is not enough to just
look purely to bring the food over, and to afford medical
care. According to the experience of NMD in addition to the
necessary work in the household, especially the personal
approach, the physical care and maintenance as well as a
leisure activity are important.
As working with children and with elderly often requires
special knowledge, the NMD staff offers his support
in several seminars each year, for example on how to deal
with dementia patients.
Over the years, the NMD was honoured with many local, state
and national awards, which shows that the association has
provided valuable assistance in countless cases.
