Burdened by Career, Studies, and Care? Sick Dependants? Old Parents?

The need of nursing care can affect everyone: the partner, parents, or one's own child.  Employees and students at RWTH Aachen are increasingly facing the challenge of simultaneously managing their responsibilities at the university and the care or supervision of dependants. RWTH Aachen views dependants as members of any type of our employees' or students' communities, in which people assume social responsibility for one another.

Through information about the current care offer and individual, personal counseling, we would like to support university members with care tasks in combining profession, study and care.
