Accommodation Pricing

Fees and Admission The financial side of Aged Care may become confusing. A multitude of government processes, terms of reference and forms can easily become overwhelming. Our role is to provide a clear and current explanation of your options. Please contact us to discuss your situation with one of our friendly team members. Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) A Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) is a lump sum accommodation payment that is assigned to every aged care room in Australia. This payment is fully refundable when you leave. If you decide not to pay RAD in full, you may choose to pay a smaller deposit combined with a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP). Your DAP is adjusted based on the amount you are able to pay upfront. The more you are able to pay upfront, the lower the amount of your DAP. Basic Daily Fee Residents are required to pay a basic daily fee which goes towards cleaning, meals, laundry and other day-to-day costs of living. The current government-set maximum daily fee for all residents is 85% of the basic single age pension. Your maximum basic daily fee will be confirmed by the Department of Human Services upon your entry to an Aged Care community such as Pines Living. Based on current rates, the maximum basic daily fee is $54.69 per day based on current rates. Everyone is expected to pay a basic daily fee to cover these services. Means Tested Care Fee (MTCF) If you are entering Aged Care on a permanent basis, you may also be required to pay an additional contribution fee. This is a government fee which is based on testing your income and assets. There are annual and lifetime caps in place for this contribution. Pines Luxury Living (Additional Services) Choosing a suite in the Pines Luxury Living Community located on Level 4 as your new home means experiencing superior levels of comfort and lifestyle. Each Pines Luxury Living resident will have access to additional products and services and lifestyle activities.

the type of room you choose
If you are not eligible for government assistance, the price you agree to pay will vary depending on what type of room you choose. For instance: 
 
  • whether you choose a single or shared room, or opt to have a shared bathroom or ensuite
  • the size of the room 
  • the geographical location of the aged care home.

While there is flexibility in how you pay for your accommodation, it’s still important to choose a room within your budget. You can find and compare room costs using the Find a provider tool.
 
Your price negotiations
Whether you have to pay towards y our accommodation or not, everyone entering an aged care home needs to agree a room price in writing with their aged care home. Aged care homes are required to publish their maximum accommodation costs for their various rooms on this website. You and the home can negotiate and agree to a lower price, but you cannot be charged more than the maximum published price.
 
Do I have to pay the full cost upfront?
No, you have a choice as to how you can pay. The options available are: 
 
  • a lump sum (a refundable accommodation amount)
    • If the government is helping with the costs, this is called a Refundable Accommodation Contribution (RAC).
    • If you are paying the full amount yourself, it’s called a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD).  
  • rental-style daily payments (a daily accommodation charge)
    • If the government is helping with the costs, this is called a Daily Accommodation Contribution (DAC).
    • If you are paying the full amount yourself, it’s called a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP).  
  • or a combination of both (for instance, to make the total required of $550,000 you could choose to pay $200,000 as a refundable lump sum, and the rest through smaller non-refundable daily payments).
     
If you choose to pay an amount as a lump sum, any unused money is refundable when you leave the home.
