Bert England Lodge was purpose built and designed to evoke a home like environment with four individual houses. It is conveniently located within one kilometre of Rockingham General Hospital, Woodbridge Medical Centre, a Supa IGA store and a Brumby’s Bakery.

Room types and 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.

Payment options defined

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.

• Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP), which is a daily payment amount.

• 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 opposite as 50% RAD and 50% DAP.

Please note the below figures relate to accommodation costs only.

There are a number of options or combinations in which to pay for accommodation. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

"I support the staff, and they support me, it’s a team effort. It’s this approach, which really makes the difference. Because I can contribute to decisions about Lynette’s care, I feel included in the care process, which gives me peace of mind that this is the best place possible for Lynette.""
