Sample Tips from our Guide section

Applying for the Nursing Homes Support Scheme

In order to apply for the scheme you must be ordinarily resident in the State. Ordinarily resident means that you have been living in the State for at least a year or that you intend
to live here for at least a year. Applications are made to your local Nursing Home Support Office on the standard application form. There are three steps to the application process.

Step 1 is an application for a Care Needs Assessment. The Care Needs Assessment identifies whether or not you need long-term nursing home care.

Step 2 is an application for State Support. This will be used to complete the Financial Assessment which determines your contribution to your care and your corresponding level of financial assistance ("State Support").

Steps 1 and 2 must be completed by all applicants (if you are resident in a nursing home before the scheme starts please see section Questions about Residential Services for People with Disabilities for further information).

Step 3 is an optional step which should be completed if you wish to apply for the Nursing Home Loan (this is termed "Ancillary State Support" in the legislation).

The application form should be completed and signed by the person applying for nursing home care. However, in certain cases, another person may apply on their behalf.
