Personalized autonomy allowance


Dernière mise à jour le :21/01/2021


The personalized autonomy allowance is a benefit that helps fund the assistance expenses faced by people 60 years of age or older with a loss of autonomy, whether they live at home or in an institution.

Managed by the departments, this benefit in kind is, at home, dedicated to the provision of human assistance, technical aids or services (home improvements, temporary accommodation in day-care facilities, respite for informal caregivers, etc.). The degree of loss of autonomy is assessed using the AGGIR (autonomy gerontology iso-resource groups) grid, which classifies seniors into six levels. The first four levels qualify for the APA.
