Does the Sozialamt (Social Welfare Office) grant benefits even if the MDK has not acknowledged a care level?

If a person demonstrably regularly requires outside help (according to the MDK assessment), but the level of need for help does not meet the criteria for care level (Pflegestufe) I, the Sozialamt will grant benefits if the person is unable to finance the assistance services using his or her own resources.
