Nursing Homes Support Scheme
Information and Application Form
Use this form to apply for the Nursing Homes Support Scheme. Completed forms should be returned to your HSE
Nursing Homes Support Offi ce, who can also provide help to complete your application. Contact details for HSE
Nursing Homes Support Offi ces are on the back page of this form. Before completing this form, you can read more
detailed information on this scheme in the Nursing Homes Support Scheme Information Booklet.
n What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?
The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides fi nancial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care.
Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a
contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment. The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of
their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose
care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person’s
particular needs and that it has a place available for the person. As the budget for this scheme is fi xed each year, at
times a waiting list for fi nancial support may be in place.
n Who can apply for the scheme?
Anyone who may need long-term nursing home care can apply. You must be ordinarily resident in the State, which
means that you have been living here for at least 1 year or you intend to live here for at least 1 year.
n How does the application process work?
There are 2 parts to the application process: a Care Needs Assessment and a Financial Assessment. The Care Needs
Assessment is carried out by healthcare staff e.g. Doctors, Nurses, Social Workers, and looks at your healthcare needs
and your family and social supports. The outcome will show if you need long-term nursing home care.
If the Care Needs Assessment shows that you need long-term nursing home care, the Financial Assessment will work
out the amount that you will pay towards the cost of your care and the amount that the HSE will pay. The amount that
you pay for your care depends on your income and the value of your assets. People who have less income/assets pay
less and people who have more income/assets pay more. No-one will pay more than the cost of their care.
n What fi nancial support does the HSE offer?
There are two types of fi nancial support available under this scheme; State Support and a Nursing Home Loan
(Ancillary State Support).
State Support: Your income and assets are assessed and your weekly contribution is worked out. The HSE will pay
the rest of the weekly cost of your care, this is called State Support.
Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support): This is an optional extra feature of the Nursing Homes Support
Scheme for people who own property/land based assets in the State. Instead of paying your full weekly contribution
for your care from your own means, you can choose to apply for a Nursing Home Loan, to cover the portion of your
contribution which is based on property/land based assets within the State. The HSE will then pay that portion of your
cost of care on top of your State Support payment.
The loan is paid back to the State after the sale of all or part of the asset or your death, whichever occurs fi rst.
Repayment of the loan is made to the Revenue Commissioners. In certain cases, repayment of the loan can be
deferred, and you can read more about this in the Information Booklet. This part of the scheme is designed to protect
people from having to sell their home during their lifetime to pay for nursing home care.
n Do I pay the same contribution for as long as I am in nursing home care?
If you are approved for fi nancial support under the scheme, you will pay the same contribution provided that your
circumstances remain the same. The HSE can review, either at your request or on its own initiative your care needs,
nancial assessment or the amount of the nursing home loan. You can read more about this in the information booklet.
n If my circumstances change?
You must advise the HSE within 10 working days if you or your partner’s circumstances change, as your fi nancial
support may be affected e.g. if your spouse/partner dies or you or your spouse/partner sell your property. Failure to
advise the HSE may result in an overpayment of State support which must be repaid to the HSE. If a person does not
notify the HSE of a change in circumstances, he/she is guilty of an offence and is liable for a summary conviction to a
ne not exceeding €1,000.

Nursing Homes Support Scheme Application Form
Please note that if a person knowingly gives false or misleading information in connection with an application for State
support, he/she is guilty of an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fi ne not exceeding €5,000 or imprisonment
for a term not exceeding 3 months or both. In cases where a person does not disclose or makes a misstatement in
respect of the amount or value of income/assets and receives a greater amount of State support than would have been
the case if there had been disclosure or no misstatement, the overpayment must be repaid by the person on demand and
may be recovered by the HSE as a simple contract debt from the person or estate of that person.
Please note that the personal representative of a deceased person is legally obliged as soon as practical but in any case
not less than 3 months before any distribution of assets of the estate of the person give the HSE (a) a schedule of assets
that is applicable to the estate of the deceased person and (b) notice in writing of the representatives intention to distribute
the assets. A Personal Representative who does not retain suffi cient assets of the estate to repay any amount due and
payable to the HSE will be held personally liable for that amount.

Part 6 – Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support)
The Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support) is an additional support designed to
ensure that people do not have to sell assets such as their home during their lifetime
in order to meet their care costs.
This is an optional extra feature of the Nursing Homes Support Scheme for people who own property/land based assets in the
State. It is a loan advanced by the HSE to you. It is paid to help you meet the portion of your contribution to the cost of care that
is based on Irish property/land based assets (i.e. land and property within the Irish State).
Payment of the Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support) by the HSE results in the creation of a charge (a simple type of
mortgage) in favour of the HSE against the interest of the applicant and his/her partner in the asset(s) set out in this application. The
HSE will notify the Property Registration Authority of the charge who will register it against the asset(s) specifi ed in this application.
You may therefore wish to seek independent legal advice before you apply for a Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support).
However, please note that there is no requirement on you to do so.
Where the home, farm, business or other asset is owned by more than one person, the HSE requests all joint owners to fi ll in Part
6B of this form.
The Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support) may be applied for at any time, not just when entering into long-term nursing
home care. Applications for the Nursing Home Loan may be granted by the HSE subject to the overall budget available to it.
The Nursing Home Loan (Ancillary State Support) together with interest is repayable (unless the applicant has voluntarily repaid
the loan prior to it falling due for repayment)
(a) when the applicant dies, or
(b) when any part of the charged asset is transferred/sold (HSE must be notifi ed within 10 working days of transfer/sale) or
(c) if the applicant or his/her partner is made a bankrupt, or
(d) if the HSE determines that it has been given false/misleading information relating to this loan application
Repayment of the loan must be made to the Revenue Commissioners [see below]
The following provides information on how the process works:
The person who is responsible for repayment of the nursing home loan to the Revenue Commissioners is called the “relevant
accountable person”. The relevant accountable person may be a different person to the applicant, depending on the
circumstances as set out in the following examples:
Example 1: Where you transfer or sell part or all of your property, during your lifetime, you and your spouse/partner will be the
relevant accountable persons.
Example 2: Where the loan is repayable after the applicant’s death the personal representative of the deceased is the relevant
accountable person. A person who inherits or has an interest in the property or any part of it can also be held accountable for
repayment of the loan.
When the repayment must take place
When the nursing home loan falls due for repayment, the HSE writes to the relevant accountable person. The HSE notifi es him/her
that the loan must be repaid and advises of the amount due. In calculating the amount due the HSE applies the consumer price
index to the loan to take account of infl ation or defl ation since the loan was paid.
Repayment timeframes
The following timeframes apply for repayment of the nursing home loan;
n Where the repayment arises, for example, because of the death of the person in care the loan must be repaid within 12
months of the date of death. Where the repayment is not made within this timeframe, Revenue will apply interest on
the amount owing from the date of death.
n Where the loan is repayable because of the sale or transfer of your property during your lifetime, it must be repaid within 6
months of the date of sale/transfer or Revenue will apply interest back to date of sale/transfer.
How the repayment is made
Revenue Commissioners are the collecting agent for the HSE in respect of monies advanced by way of a nursing home loan. The
Nursing Home Loan must be repaid to Revenue. It should be repaid as soon as possible after notice is received from the HSE
and, in any event, within the timeframes outlined above. Further information is available on how to make payments on Revenue’s
website at www.revenue.ie
Deferral of Repayment of Nursing Home Loan
Where the loan becomes repayable on death, the repayment of monies based on the principal residence can be deferred in
certain cases. You can read more about this in the information booklet.
In relation to deferrals, the following timeframes apply for repayment of the nursing home loan:
n On the death of the partner of the person who was in receipt of care or on the death of the connected person, the loan must
be repaid within 12 months of the date of death of that person. For more information on the defi nition of a connected person
please see the information booklet.
n Where a person ceases to be a connected person as defi ned in the legislation or where an interest in the residence is
transferred/sold, the loan must be repaid within 6 months of the date the person ceased to be a connected person or date of
the transfer/sale.
