James Bannon

Question:

541. Deputy James Bannon asked the Minister for Health if he will provide clarity in respect of the criteria regarding personal assistants for persons over the age of 65 years and the reason persons over this age cannot avail of this service unless they have previously been assigned an assistant, as this is causing extreme hardship; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As the Deputy's question relates to service matters I have arranged for the question to be referred to the Health Service Executive for direct reply to the Deputy.
