Government Announces New Plan for Care of the Elderly

Via RTÉ

Its about time they did this but I have huge reservations to this part of the Plan

The plan provides for the State to recoup some of the cost of care from older people after their death, when their home is sold.

What if it is left to a member of the family, I know they have to pay inheritance tax etc, but how can they put another tax on it, I suppose it will be another Stealth Tax, they’ll tax ya despit you being dead!

I like this part of the plan though

The distinction between a public and private nursing home bed is to end.

But basically will pay more if you can!
