If you or your spouse or civil partner need nursing home care, there are schemes you can apply for.
You can claim tax relief on the nursing home expenses you pay for.
The Nursing Home, or Fair Deal Loan Scheme is run by the Health Service Executive (HSE). The scheme offers financial support to people who need long-term nursing home care. See the Nursing home (Fair Deal) Loan Scheme section for more information.
You may be permanently incapacitated due to physical or mental illness. If you are, any gift or inheritance you receive to pay your medical expenses is exempt from Gift and Inheritance Tax. This can include the cost of your nursing home care.
You can learn more about this exemption in Exemption for qualifying expenses related to physical or intellectual disability.
