The majority of the allocation will be used to refurbish and update existing units by improving the living environment of older people by way of general refurbishment and upgrade such items like electrical systems. In the case of some counties where individual projects are not formally identified, there is some work still required at local level to determine such projects. In addition, monies will be made available for the procurement of aids and appliances for older people and thereby improve their quality of life.

In particular the Tánaiste and Minister of State Power welcomed the identification by the Health Service Executive of specific projects as priorities for completion.
