In 2000 the idea of a Family Hospice Sabbatical was generated to further unburden the public health care sector facilitating family care for dying relatives or severely ill children at home. Austrian employees would have three options: uncompensated reduction of work time, change of work time or uncompensated sabbatical. The care giver can take care of spouses, partners, parents, grant parents, children, step children, foster kids, siblings and step parents.
