What is Fair Deal Scheme

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme Act 2009 was signed into law on the 1st July 2009.

The Scheme is designed to remove real financial hardship from many individuals and their families. Under the scheme an individual will make a contribution towards the cost of their care. This is based on financial assessment of the individual's means. The state will pay the balance of the cost.
