An application for domiciliary care allowance was received on 13 April 2011 from the person in question. This application was referred to one of the Department's Medical Assessors who found that her child was not medically eligible for the allowance.

The person in question was notified of the decision on 22 June 2011 and has in the last few days notified the Department of her wish to appeal the decision. Her request has been forwarded to the Social Welfare Appeals Office who will register an appeal shortly.
