Many families are being faced with huge weekly bills for their loved one in a nursing home, despite their relative having qualified for the Fair Deal scheme that supports nursing home care.

Delays of up to three months in providing individual funding for people under the scheme at present are totally unacceptable, according to Roscommon Fine Gael Senator Maura Hopkins.

She is calling on the Minister for older People Jim Daly to immediately secure additional funding from the Finance Minister Pascal Donohue to reduce the increasing burden on families affected.
