Juliana Village Accommodation Pricing from 1st January 2015

Residential Care

Legislation introduced by the Australian Federal Government on July 1 2014, changed the aged care system significantly.

The distinction between “high” care and “low” care has been removed and is now termed “residential” care.

Accommodation costs can be paid either as a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a combination of both.
Residents have a period of 28 days after entering to decide on their payment method. Accommodation costs are determined by a resident’s assessable income and assets. Please note that retention payments do not apply to residential care.

Ongoing care fees include:

  • Basic Daily Fee – payable by all residents and determined by the Federal Government. As at 19 March 2015 at $49.07 per day.
  • Means Tested Care Fee – will be determined by a resident’s assessable income and assets
  • The value of your home will be assessed for the purpose of the Means Test Care Fee up to a cap of $162,087.20 unless occupied by a protected person such as your spouse.
  • Residents can spend up to 52 nights a year away from the aged care home without affecting any government financial assistance. This is called social leave and only counts if you spend the night away from the care home. If you spend more than 52 nights away from the home, the government will cease to pay any subsidies for the extra time and the home may ask you to pay more.
