What is a care representative?
A care representative is appointed when an individual is suffering from ill health, a mental condition or a physical disability.
How to appoint a care representative?
For the appointment of a care representative, an application must be made to the courts on behalf of the individual and two medical reports are required. Family members may need to be notified in writing or their written consent presented to the court.
Who can become a care representative?
Under the Nursing Home Support Scheme or Fair Deal Scheme, it is possible for a relative of a person needing long-term nursing home care to be appointed as a Care Representative.
Nursing home loan
The Care Representative will then have authority to consent to a nursing home loan in respect of the 5% contribution per annum to cost of care on land and property. This will enable the contribution to be deferred until the death of the person requiring nursing home care. In certain circumstances, the contribution can be deferred into the future
