A Means-Tested Fee may be required by permanent residents following a government assessment of assets and income. This fee is paid directly to Residential Gardens but deducted by the government from the home’s subsidy. No resident will be required to pay more than they can afford, and no resident will be required to pay more than the cost of their care.
The Maximum Permissable Interest Rate (MPIR) will be used to calculate the Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) equivalent of the Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), as well as interest payable on the payments. The current MPIR as of 1 July 2016 is 6.01%.
The Department of Social Services may be able to help with financial hardship assistance for aged care expenses. Applications for financial hardship assistance may seek assistance with their daily fees and the income-tested fee.
