I came across this website while researching the Fair Deal Scheme for my elderly mother and this was the only place I could see to find some independent advice. Our discussion was useful to clarify the issues in my mind about meeting this cost. I do think it would be useful for people to be made aware of the issues involved so that they may be in a better position to deal with this type of situation.

My father transferred the farm to me in 2016. We are worried in case the Fair Deal tries to take the farm. Emer explained the process and we know what to do now. We were very happy with the service.

I wanted to know about the Fair Deal for my husband who has dementia. I found the application form very complicated. They were asking for an awful lot of information and copies of documents. Emer explained the system to us in a straightforward way so that we understood what we were getting ourselves into. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Our mother is currently in hospital and the staff are putting pressure on us to make a decision about the Fair Deal because they need the bed. We spoke to Emer because we were not sure whether or not it was a good idea to go into the Fair Deal or to pay privately. Emer explained how the Fair Deal works and gave us the tools to deal with the hospital.

We were exhausted trying to look after our mother who has dementia. Until recently our father was her carer but now he too is showing signs of slowing down. We looked at the Fair Deal scheme but could not figure out what was the best thing to do. We were at breaking point when we spoke to Emer and she helped us to understand what is involved in the Fair Deal scheme and how much it will cost. We would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.

My father was adamant that he did not want to go into a nursing home. We are currently paying a carer to live in and we just wanted to know how the cost of homecare compares with the Fair Deal Scheme. We had tried to research it ourselves and were delighted to find Emer online. Emer explained the costs involved and we are hoping to make a decision soon about what to do.”

A Note from Emer...

“No matter what your circumstances are, it is worth talking to me about your situation even if your income and assets are relatively high.

I cannot stress the importance of this enough.

Figures alone do not give the full picture and smart decisions still need to be made.”
