What do the rooms cost?
The fees that Residents in our Aged Care Centre may incur are:
Ongoing Care Fees– these fees relate to your daily living costs and are divided into two parts:
- A basic daily fee which is payable by all Residents;
- a means-tested care fee which is determined by a Resident’s assessable income and assets. This care fee is in addition to the basic daily fee.
Accommodation Payments – these payments relate to the cost of your accommodation in an aged care home and are in addition to the Ongoing Care Fees. This payment is only applicable if your assets exceed an amount set by the Australian Government and is agreed with our Centre prior to your occupation.
The Accommodation Payment can be made by one of the following methods:
- A refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) – This is a lump sum payment.
- A daily accommodation payment (DAP) – This is a daily payment.
- A combination of both the RAD & DAP.
A Resident has up to twenty-eight (28) days, after entering the Centre, to decide on their payment method:
- A refundable accommodation deposit is a lump sum payment, the balance of which is refunded when you leave.
- A daily accommodation payment is a rental style payment that is paid on a regular basis, payable up to a month in advance, and is not refundable.
- A combination of the two.

Is Government financial support available?
You may be eligible for Government support to cover some, or all, of your care and accommodation fees. To apply for this support, you need to complete the Request for a Combined Assets and Income Assessment on the Services Australia website.
As it can take 2 to 4 weeks for the DHS to assess your eligibility, it’s a good idea to complete the form long before entering aged care. If you choose not to complete the form, that’s okay, but it’s likely you will have to cover all the fees yourself.
