Welcome to our beautiful bushland setting
Following on from changes to Aged Care which commenced on 1 July 2014, the way a resident and their family pay for aged care changed. Since this time residents have still continued to experience quality aged care in a bush like setting, without regard to whether they have the means to pay for their accomdation or pay a RAD (Refundable Accomdation Deposit) or not.
A resident and family is now given a choice upon entry to a facility as to whether they wish to pay a RAD (formerly known as an accommodation bond), or an equivalent daily payment (a periodic payment also known as a 'Daily Accommodation Payment 'or 'DAP') or a combination of both. If the Centrelink Asset Assessment deems that you cannot pay the fees necessary, then you can enter as a funded resident as per the previous program. The RAD is paid as a lump sum amount and the DAP accrues daily and is paid monthly. The combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.
The other major change is that there is now no more classification between high care and low care. The funding style options of entry are now the same for all residents entering in, regardless of their care needs.
The following accommodation prices apply to all new residents that move into our home;
Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) - $350,000 - $450,000
Maximum Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) - $74.09
Combination payment (50% RAD and 50% DAP) - RAD $225,000 DAP $37.05
Effective Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) - 5.96%
NOTE: These prices are the MAXIMUM amount payable with the actual amounts paid varying depending on individual residents' circumstances.
