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.
