Caring for Relatives

Caring for a relative brings a multitude of changes to personal living situations which are often difficult to cope with. Physical and mental stress and learning nursing skills are one aspect, and clashes with your own life plans are another.

Reconciling family responsibilities with a career or studies is an organizational and emotional challenge. Humboldt-Universität reacts to this special situation with flexible solutions for students or employees who care for relatives (HU Principles for designing a family-friendly university / Study Organization). 

The Family Support Centre offers counselling and information to employees and students who are looking after a relative or will be in the future. (Care leaflet as PDF file)

You can find important information on the topic of care and on reconciling work with care responsibilities in the HU Berlin Further Professional Qualification courses.
