        Residential Aged Care Accommodation – Pricing

        Please see below for a full list of our residential aged care accommodation prices.

        This Calculator does not include the Basic Daily Care Fee (your contribution towards care, meals and services). This is the standard charge for every resident in aged care in Australia and is calculated at 85% of the single person Centrelink pension payment.
        The Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) is non-refundable. Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) is fully refundable. The Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) is set by the Australian Government (currently 5.96%, effective from Oct 1st, 2018) and is built into the Calculator.

        In addition to your daily care fee*, you can choose to pay for your accommodation by a refundable accommodation deposit (RAD), a daily accommodation payment (DAP), or a combination of both.

        • A RAD is paid as a lump sum amount.
        • A DAP accrues daily and is paid periodically, for example, monthly.
        • A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.

        You will have 28 days from the day you entered care to decide your payment method.

        Example:

        Option 1:

        If a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) is $350,000 you could choose to pay the full amount.

        Option 2:

        If you choose a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) and the room is $350,000 the daily price would be $57.15 per day (based on 5.96% 1/7/18).

        Option 3:

        If a combination of both RAD and DAP is more preferable then it could be

        50% RAD = $175,000 plus

        a 50% DAP = $28.58 per day (based on 5.96% 1/7/18).

        A Daily Accommodation Payment may be deducted from a Refundable Accommodation Deposit balance in order to meet the agreed accommodation payment.

        *Your daily care fee is used to contribute towards your day-to-day living costs. The rate is calculated each year in line with changes to the Aged Pension. This information is provided by the Department of Human Services.

        The basic daily fee is 85% of the single person rate of the basic age pension.

        From 20 March 2018, the single rate of the basic age pension is $826.20 per fortnight, making the basic daily fee (from 20 March 2018 to 19 September 2018): $50.16 per day; or $702.24 per fortnight. This amount is indexed with the age pension. This applies even if you are a member of a couple.

         

        Additional Fees and Charges Aged Care

        Additional fees may apply if you choose a higher standard of accommodation or additional services. Extra service fees apply to residents in an extra service place. Other additional care and services and associated fees are available per facility and vary from hairdressing and Foxtel.
