Fees & Charges

Fees are determined according to each resident’s financial situation, as determined by Centrelink. Residents must provide payment for entering a nursing home, much like giving a deposit to buy a house or pay rent.

They can either pay a one-off deposit (which is refunded when the resident leaves the facility) or pay a daily accommodation fee.

The components of fees may consist of:

  1. Daily fees which generally amount to 85 per cent of the aged pension. This covers living costs.
  2. An income tested fee which applies in circumstances where the elder’s income is greater than the aged care pension.
  3. The Care Contribution Fee which is an additional contribution towards the cost of care that some residents may be required to pay. This will be determined by Centrelink.
  4. Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD). This is for the resident’s accommodation in the home. The RAD prices are set by the home. Centrelink will determine if you are required to pay this. It is determined based on an assessment of your income and assets.
