Admission Pricing

What might you be asked to pay?

Basic Daily Fee

Everyone is required to pay the basic daily fee.  This covers your day-to-day living costs such as meals, cleaning and laundry, heating and cooling. The Basic Daily Fee is set at 85% of the single person rate of the basic age pension. When the pension increases on 20 March and September each year, your Basic Daily Fee will increase. Currently, and up to March 2018, this fee is $49.42.

Means-Tested Fee

If you can afford to, the government will require you to contribute to your cost of care. The Department of Human Services will work out if you are required to pay this fee based on an assessment of your income and assets and will advise you of the amount. Please note that if you are a member of a couple, half of your combined income and assets are considered in determining your means-tested fee, regardless of which partner earns the income or owns the asset.
There are annual and lifetime caps on these fees. Once you reach $26,566.54 in a year and $63,759.75 over your lifetime, you cannot be asked to pay any more Means-Tested Fees. Any income-tested care fees you pay after 1 July 2014 in a Home Care Package before moving in to our facility will also contribute to these caps.
Information on the governing rules of aged care means test assessments, including deemed income and exemptions, is available on the Department of Human Services website.
