Understanding the Cost?

An important consideration for individuals deciding to move to an aged care facility is the cost.

Questions you may ask include

  • How much will I pay?
  • What is included in the cost?
  • Are there payment options? And
  • Where do I start?

The answers to these questions may be varied depending on your own personal circumstances. Considerations may include:

  • The type of room you would like?
  • Your personal financial circumstances and
  • The type of care or services you may wish to have?

Exact costs will be different for each individual.The My Aged Care website provides a good explanation of these fees and charges. Link

My Aged Care also offers a residential care fee estimator. Click Here 

The Australian Government determines if you are required to pay certain fees or costs. This assessment is based on your completion and the processing of an Income and Assets Form with the Australian Government.

If this form has not been processed prior to you moving to the facility you will be charged the full Daily Accommodation Payment for the room you have chosen Once the form is processed, the fees relating to this may be refunded, if appropriate.
