There are a lot of things to understand and consider when it comes to residential aged care. If you have any questions about moving into Greenhill Manor in regard to our care, facilities or pricing, we encourage you to get in touch for a chat.

The costs involved in moving into an aged care community can be a little complicated. The government offers subsidies to everyone; however, you may need to contribute more towards the cost of your care if you can afford it.

Care Costs

Basic daily fee

All aged care residents, including short-term respite residents, pay a basic daily fee. This contributes to day-to-day living costs such as meals, cleaning and laundry. The maximum daily fee for all residents is 85% of the basic single age pension. When you enter an aged care community you’ll receive a letter from the Department of Human Services confirming your maximum basic daily fee.

Means-tested care fee

Fulltime aged care residents may also be required to pay an additional contribution based on an assessment of their income and assets. There are annual and lifetime caps for this contribution and any income-tested fees you may have previously paid towards home care count towards this cap.

Accommodation costs at Greenhill Manor

Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)

Each aged care room in Australia has its own RAD price. Your RAD is a lump-sum accommodation payment, which is fully refundable when you leave. You have the option to pay the RAD either in full or a smaller deposit amount combined with a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP). The more you are able to pay up front, the less your DAP will be.
