If you need nursing home care, you may qualify for the  Fair Deal Scheme. if you are medically assessed as needing long term residential care and financially assessed by a Means Test as qualifying for payment. If you visit the HSE website - Older People Services - you will find information on the current Fair Deal Scheme which came into effect from the 27th of October 2009.

The means test always takes account  your income and it may also take your assets into account. Your house may be taken into account and, if it is, there are specific rules about how it is treated, in keeping with the Nursing Home (Fairdeal) Regulations. The HSE has considerable discretion in relation to how assets are treated for the purposes of assessing means. The Fairdeal  is designed to help with nursing homes costs. It was not designed to meet the full costs.

You or any other person who is paying the costs involved may be able to claim Tax Relief on the costs of your care in a private nursing home.  A list of nursing homes approved by the Revenue Commissioners is available by clicking here >>
