The Australian Government regulates accommodation charges for residential care services. Although the Government provides some financial support, you may need to contribute towards your costs.

These charges can either be a lump sum payment (Refundable Accommodation Deposit – RAD) or a regular daily payment (Daily Accommodation Payment – DAP), or a combination of both.

If the accommodation charge is paid as a lump sum (RAD) it is fully refundable, unless you choose to pay other charges from this.

Please call our friendly Care Options team on 1800 852 772 for more personalised information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do ACATs assess the type of care I need?

Whether you live at home or are in hospital, ACATs can visit you to discuss exactly what it is you need.
Team members simply ask you a series of questions that are designed to determine how much and what type of help you need.
With your permission, the ACAT will also make contact with your doctor. This helps them to gain important information about your medical history, which helps with the assessment process.

What are my rights during an assessment?

- To be treated with dignity and respect.
- To be provided with correct and complete information about the assessment process.
- To be listened to.
- To have someone with you, such as a carer, close friend or relative.
- To have an interpreter (which ACAT can arrange).
- To receive independent advice from an advocate, or have them act on your behalf.

What if Iā€™m not happy with my assessment result?

You have the final decision to accept or reject an ACAT recommendation.
If you are unhappy with the recommendations, it is always best to first talk with the person in charge of the ACAT; most concerns can resolved this way.
If you cannot come to an agreement, you can appeal the decision. ACAT will send you a letter that explains how you, or someone acting on your behalf, can do this.
