Aged care costs explained
If you are new to aged care, the fees and payments can seem overwhelming. When you’re looking into aged care, it’s important to keep in mind that the Australian Government may make a contribution to your aged care costs, depending on your financial situation. Many of our residents receive some degree of Government support, with some only paying the Basic Daily Care Fee, which is linked to the age pension.
While it can be complicated, the system is designed to be flexible to meet everyone’s differing needs and financial situation, and to support those who have limited financial assets or income.
