From 1 July 2014 people entering permanent aged care may be required to pay an accommodation payment, in addition to the basic daily care fees and means tested care fee (if applicable).
Your personal financial situation will determine the level of accommodation payment you may need to pay. People with limited assets and income may have their accommodation payment fully or partially subsidised by the Government. An asset assessment form should be completed and sent to Centrelink or the Department of Veteran Affairs before entering permanent care to ensure the correct accommodation payment is determined for you by the aged care home.
The accommodation payments (if applicable to you) are payable as either Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RAD) or Daily Accommodation Payments (DAP) or a combination of both. Accommodation payments are capped at the maximum RAD or DAP equivalent shown on our website, see below, or advertised on the MyAgedCare website.
Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RAD) are made as a lump sum of the negotiated accommodation price, whilst Daily Accommodation Payments are charged as daily payments and are billed in advance each month. If payment is made by a RAD then the full accommodation deposit will be returned when you leave our home, less any allowed charges that are outstanding at this time. If you decide to make your accommodation payment by way of a combination of both a RAD and DAP and your DAP payments are not being met then any outstanding DAP’s may be taken from the held lump sum amount (RAD). It should be noted that by doing so it will increase the level of DAP payments by the reduced RAD amount held to ensure equivalence to the original accommodation payment price agreed upon at entry.
It is important to note that these prices have been derived to represent the maximum charges applicable for our accommodation, all prices are negotiable to meet your personal financial situation. We are dedicated to providing accommodation to all people requiring clinical care and support with daily living within an aged care home environment, regardless of their financial position.
