Nursing Homes Support Scheme (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages
Alice-Mary Higgins (Independent)
Well done to the Minister of State. I commend her on the Bill. I know from the previous Oireachtas the real care she brings and the work she has done for those who are most vulnerable, their families and those around them. This is a very positive Bill and a very positive step forward. I commend her on that and look forward to engaging further on the issues we highlighted. I think the Minister of State understands they will be key, important parts around changing the perspective and experience of those who are older in Ireland, and of those with disabilities and their families, in terms of care. There is a whole set of pieces and this is one very good and constructive part of a new jigsaw. I commend the Minister of State and her officials on it. I thank the Cathaoirleach.
