The HSE support scheme for helping with fees due to Nursing homes is known as the “Fair Deal”.
An application for Fair Deal support should be made as soon as possible once the decision to avail of Nursing home facilities is made. An application form can be received either through the local HSE offices or any of our homes. The Support given will depend on the residents current income but as a general rule the resident is obliged to pay 80% of his/ her income and the HSE support will pay the rest of the fee. Our staff can advise and help in the application process and with any queries you may have. Source www.hse.ie
