Nursing Homes Support Scheme, a Fair Deal


A Fair Deal

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme is a scheme of financial support for people who need long-term nursing home care. Under the Nursing Homes Support Scheme, you will make a contribution towards the cost of your care and the State will pay the balance. This applies whether the nursing home is public, private or voluntary.

The HSE administers the Fair Deal Scheme within the resources available and in line with the Nursing Home Support Scheme legislation. Applicants cannot avail of State funding for a nursing home place prior to receiving approval of their Fair Deal application.

The scheme has a number of steps and these are set out in the detailed Nursing Homes Support Scheme Information booklet, which you can read or download on this page.
