Financial Supports

Financial Support

  • The Nursing Home Support Scheme, or Fair Deal, is the main financial support for the cost of nursing home care. 
  • 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.
