Care guides at the University of Bonn ´(`'Pflegelotsen'`)

The care guides are colleagues who act as the first point of contact in their areas of work on the subject of care. They help you to find your way through the care jungle, provide initial information and give you telephone numbers of people to contact.

You can still obtain detailed advice from the Office of Family Services.
