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.

The maximum lump sum accommodation charge per person is $550,000 for a single room with a private ensuite (6.2m x 4.4m).

Frequently Asked Questions

How is my income assessed?

Your income is usually assessed by Centrelink. However, if you receive a regular service pension or income support supplement from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), they will assess your income.
If you do not receive any pension, when you enter care you will need to provide information about your income to Centrelink.

What is an accommodation payment?

Depending on your government mean testing assessment, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your accommodation in residential care. This may be as either a lump sum payment (Refundable Accommodation Deposit - RAD) or as a regular periodic payment (Daily Accommodation Payment – DAP), or a combination of both.

Will I have to pay anything else besides the basic daily fee?

Some residents have to pay a means-tested fee, in addition to the basic daily fee. This is determined by Centrelink on behalf of the Department of Social Services.

Residents may also have to pay an Additional Wellbeing Services fee, which is a daily fee that covers the provision of key wellbeing services including group gym sessions & personal training, social activities, excursions and health promotion, and in-room telephone services.
