Accommodation Payments and Key Features

Accommodation Payments - these payments relate to the cost of your accommodation in an aged care home and are in addition to the Ongoing Care Fees.

This payment is only applicable if your assets exceed an amount set by the Australian Government and is agreed with our Centre prior to your occupation.

The Accomodation Payment can be made by one of the following methods:

  1. A refundable accomodation deposit (RAD) - This is a lump sum payment.
  2. A daily accommodation payment (DAP) - This is a daily payment.
  3. A combination of both the RAD & DAP.

A Resident has up to twenty-eight (28) days, after entering the Centre, to decide on their payment method.
