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