‘FAIR DEAL’ OR ELDER ABUSE? Bríd on Vincent Browne programme.

On Vincent Browne the other night we made the point about how unfair the Fair Deal scheme is. The Devereux’s situation was the case in point – a couple married for 63 years and separated by the HSE’s ‘Fair Deal’; one of them was accepted for care in the nursing home, the other wasn’t. It’s not just unfair – it’s cruelty. Simon Harris should be done for elder abuse.
