Am I entitled to a Pflegevermächtnis (nursing legacy) even if I am not included in the last will?

Generally, only close relatives are entitled to a nursing legacy. This entitlement exists if the person cared for the deceased person to a greater extent at least six months before his/her death. Should the caring relative have already received grants from the inheritance in order to compensate these services, or if he/she has received a payment already during the lifetime of this person, he/she is no longer entitled to a nursing legacy.
