Fair Deal Scheme

Fair Deal is the name given to the State’s Nursing Home Support Scheme which is used in the financing of long-term care for most older people.  It is a scheme of financial support for people who need long-term nursing home care. (Please note applicants cannot avail of State funding for a nursing home place prior to receiving approval of their Fair Deal application and it does not apply to Convalescent or Respite Care in a nursing home).

Under the Fair Deal 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 private, voluntary or public. A significant benefit of the Fair Deal scheme is that it allows residents to choose which nursing home they wish to stay in, once it is covered by the Fair Deal Scheme.  Parke House Nursing Home is a registered participant in the Fair Deal scheme.
