Joseph Cooke House - Shelley

Description

Joseph Cooke House is located at 2 Houtmans Street, Shelley, WA, 6148.

Catering for 43 residents, our modern home is located only one kilometre from the banks of the Canning River.  Joseph Cooke House was named after Senator Joseph Cooke who was a Knight of the Southern Cross and a founding member of the Board of Southern Cross Care Homes Incorporated. He eventually became a Senator in the Commonwealth Parliament and President of the ALP in Western Australia.

Joseph Cooke House is centrally located with nearby amenities including a post office, bank, bowls club, community centre and a chemist.  There is also a medical centre close by, as well as hospital and ambulance services.  Leach Highway is within close proximity, and with on-site visitor parking and public bus stops close by, visiting is a breeze.  It is co-located with Thomas Perrott Village, one of our independent living villages.

Short term respite accommodation, from one day to a number of weeks, is also offered, providing peace of mind for carers.  It can also be an important step in the smooth transition of the care recipient into permanent placement in the care facility.

Pricing

Residential Aged Care Fees

When entering aged care, the Centrelink assessment of your assets and income determines what you may need to pay towards the cost of the accommodation and services. You may be asked to pay a basic daily fee, a means tested fee and an amount for your accommodation. The basic daily fee is to cover living expenses such as meals, power and laundry. The means tested care fee contributes to the cost of your care and you may also be asked to pay an accommodation contribution to either fully or partially cover the cost of your accommodation.

Paying for residential aged care can seem complex and we are here to help you navigate the options available to you based on your situation.

Accommodation Payment Options 

Residents have a choice on how they wish to pay for their accommodation. Residents are required to complete a Centrelink assessment which determines eligibility for Government financial assistance for their accommodation. 

  • Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), which is an upfront amount paid by a resident for entry into residential care, or
  • Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP), which is a daily payment amount, or
  • A combination of RAD and DAP, which is where a resident makes an upfront payment of a portion of the RAD and the remainder is paid as a DAP. For illustrative purposes, this has been shown in the table below as 50% RAD and 50% DAP.


The table below shows the RAD and DAP costs as well as the figures of a 50% RAD and 50% DAP.
