Understanding residential care costs

The Australian Government provides funding for a range of aged care related services

Olivet Care is a government-subsidised aged care provider and the fees and costs for our residential care services and accommodation are based on the standard rates as regulated by the Department of Health on behalf of the Australian Government.

More information on eligibility for subsidised residential aged care and applying for an assessment can be found on the Australian Government My Aged Care website.

Our helpful admissions team will assist you to understand the costs and fees that would be applicable, based on your individual situation and the accommodation options we have available within our various households. This may include undertaking an income and assets assessment to work out what fees you may need to pay.

If they can afford to, there is an expectation that those coming into aged care homes will contribute towards their ongoing care and accommodation costs

There are 4 main types of fees and costs associated with residential aged care:

  • Basic daily fee

  • Means-tested care fee

  • Accommodation cost

  • Additional services fees

The basic daily fee covers the day to day living costs such as meals, laundry, cleaning and general utilities costs.

The basic daily fee is set at a maximum of 85% of the single Aged Pension and is the same for everyone, whether or not you receive the Aged Pension.

The basic daily fee is currently set at $61.96. As the fee is linked to the Aged Pension, the amount payable is reviewed twice a year in March & September. All residents will be advised of the new fee whenever changes are made.

The means-tested fee is an additional contribution towards the costs for day to day personal care and nursing costs, but only applies to people who can afford it.

The actual fee that will apply, if any, is based on an assessment of your income and assets. For couples, the fee is based on half your combined income and assets, regardless of who earns the income or owns the assets.

There are annual and life-time caps on the means-tested fee. Maximum annual fee you can be asked to pay is currently now $33,309.29.

Accommodation costs are the fees that residential aged care providers charge for the specific room that is provided. Room costs can vary depending upon local property prices, the type and size of a room and other amenities that are available within the home.

There are three ways accommodation costs can be paid:
• a lump-sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD); or
• a regular rental type payment called a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP); or
• a combination of both a partial RAD and a DAP calculated on the unpaid lump sum.

Like the means-tested fee, whether you are required to pay the full price for your accommodation will be based on an assessment of your income and assets. You can move into a home before deciding how you want to pay. You have 28 days to decide and until then, a DAP will apply until you make that decision.

Full details of the room options by household we currently have available at Olivet Care, including associated RAD and DAP accommodation costs, can be found on the My Aged Care website. A summary is also provided below.

A lump-sum that is paid as you enter Olivet Care, or shortly thereafter, based on the room provided.

Fully refundable upon probate being granted.

The DAP is calculated as a daily cost and is charged monthly

The calculation is based on the full RAD (less any partial RAD paid) multiplied by the maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR) applicable on the day the room price was agreed. The current MPIR is 8.34%.

For example, if the RAD for a room is $550,000 then the DAP payable is $125.57 ($550,000 x 8.34%/365).

DAP payments are not refundable

Our aim is to provide all our residents with a level of care and services that will exceed expectations. Additionally, we do offer a range of reasonably priced ‘hotel style’ services to provide enhanced lifestyle choices. These include wine with meal options, telephones in rooms, and Wi-Fi for streaming services, etc.
