Cost of Care in approved facilities

Under the Nursing Home Support Scheme (NHSS), the weekly cost of care for private and voluntary nursing homes is published following agreement being reached with the National Treatment Purchase Fund. The cost of care for public residential care services has now been updated with the January 2016 position shown by centre.

A fundamental element of the NHSS allows for the choice of residence, ie public, private and voluntary and the individuals contribution under the scheme remains the same regardless of which centre is their choice.
