Update on A Fair Deal
Fair Deal, a new scheme to support people in long stay care was due to commence on 1st January, 2008. However, the scheme will not now begin on that date. The final details of the Bill are being addressed at present and it is intended to publish it as soon as possible, following Government approval. People should be reassured that, in the meantime, the current arrangements for nursing home subvention will continue uninterrupted.
