Welcome to our beautiful bushland setting
On 1 July 2014, the way a resident and their family pay for aged care changed. This change came out of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing's 'Living Longer Living Better' paper that was released in 2012. It is designed to provide better flexibility for the resident on how they pay for their stay in an aged care facility.
A resident and family is now given a choice upon entry to a facility as to whether they wish to pay a Refundable Accommodation Deposit or '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 an 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;
Maximum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) - $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) - 5.78%
NOTE: These prices are the MAXIMUM amount payable with the actual amounts paid varying depending on individual residents' circumstances.
