Your own personal circumstances and financial situation will influence the amount you pay for an aged care facility. How much you pay or may be required to contribute is determined by the government. For a better understanding of this, we suggest seeking financial advice before submitting an application. The cost of residential aged care consists of care fees and accommodation fees, which may look like this:
Basic daily fee
Covers living costs, such as meals, electricity and laundry
Additional services daily fee
There may be fees associated with our premium facilities providing additional services which are not covered by government funding, and these are paid for by residents as a set daily amount.
Paid through an upfront amount, daily payment or a combination of both, this cost includes the room you will occupy.
Means tested care fee
This additional contribution to the cost of your personal and clinical care is calculated by the Department of Human Services based on your income and assets
