All residents are asked to pay fees and charges as a contribution towards their accommodation, living expenses and care. If you cannot afford the fees and charges there are protections in place which ensure you will still have equal access to residential aged care.
There are five fees and charges you may be asked to pay:
- Basic daily care fee
- Means tested fee
- Refundable accommodation deposit (RAD)
- Extra service fee
- Specified care and service charges
