Villa Pelletier is one of Southern Cross Care’s founding facilities, opening in 1970. It was originally managed on behalf of the Order of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd in Australia, who established the facility to provide accommodation for their community of women who supported themselves by providing laundry services to nearby hospitals and hotels.
The house has been purpose built to support residents and also offers short term respite accommodation which can assist with a smooth transition into permanent placement.
Our home encompasses design features that are of particular benefit to residents with mobility challenges. This includes wide hallways and nurse call buttons located in every bedroom, bathroom and throughout the facility.
There are a range of common areas which residents can access throughout Villa Pelletier. These offer spaces to take part in activities and socialise, or simply just relax and enjoy quiet time with family and friends. Common spaces include a dining room, lounge room, activities room, comfortable indoor and outdoor sitting areas and a BBQ area. The on-site chapel provides a place for quiet reflection, or residents can attend the regular mass services.
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, 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.
