What does Fair Deal Cover?

Fair Deal funding covers the level of care appropriate to the individual as well as bed, board and a laundry service.  It also covers certain therapeutic activities and some aids and appliances needed to assist with the activities of daily living.  If a person has a medical card this should cover the cost of aids and appliances as well as medical care such as GP charges and medication. If you do not have a medical card then costs not covered by Fair Deal must be covered by you or your family.
