Applying to the NHSS
There are three steps to the application process:
Step 1 is an application for a care needs assessment. This process involves a decision as to whether you need long-term nursing home care.
Step 2 is an application for State support. This involves a financial assessment which determines what your contribution to your care will be and what contribute the State will make.
Step 3 is an optional step which should be completed if you wish to apply for the Nursing Home Loan. You may wish to consider taking independent legal advice before applying for the Nursing Home Loan.
