What might you be asked to pay?
Basic Daily Fee
However, some people will not have to pay anything for their accommodation or possibly only pay for part of it. The Department of Human Services will advise if you are eligible for any Government assistance towards your accommodation, based on an assessment of your income and assets. If you are not eligible for Government support, you will pay the accommodation price. This price will be outlined in the Price Day Agreement you make on accepting a room, and the Resident Agreement you sign before you enter care.

What is a RAD and a DAP?
Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable accommodation deposit (RAD), a daily accommodation payment (DAP), or a combination of both.
A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount.
A daily payment accrues daily and is paid periodically, for example monthly.
A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.
