Aged care is a specialist type of service and will cost money, but it is worth doing some research to see if there is financial assistance to help pay for the care.
Columbia Aged care Services is happy to provide information on its fee structure and, in many cases, the Australian Government may contribute to the cost of accommodation and care for people who have been assessed as needing care. The amount they will need to pay themselves will depend on their assets and income.
Aged care costs
Aged care homes have several fees and charges, with some fees the same for everyone and some based on income. There is a daily care fee and, in some cases an income tested fee. Some may also be asked to pay an accommodation payment – either an accommodation bond, or an accommodation charge. The government calculates and regulates care fees.
