The Nursing Homes Support Scheme, better known as ‘Fair Deal’. 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. For clarity, Fair Deal funding does not apply to Convalescent or Respite Care in a nursing home.
