Fees and Charges
Residential Care, Permanent
From 1 July 2014, permanent residential care fees will be made-up of the Basic Daily Fee, a Means Tested Care Fee and a price for Accommodation.
The Basic Daily Fee is set by the Australian Government and is based on a % of the Age Pension. You can download a current Schedule of Fees and Charges from this page.
A Means Tested Care Fee is an additional contribution to the cost of your care and is worked out by the Department of Human Services or Department of Veterans Affairs and is based on a person’s income and assets.
The price for Accommodation is set by us and is based on a combination of the room features, room size, services offered and our location. You can choose how you pay for your Accommodation by paying a refundable deposit or a daily payment or a combination of both.
