Our Fees

Depending on your financial situation, your care and accommodation costs may be partly or fully covered by the government. There are strong protections in place to make sure that care is affordable for everyone.

There are three types of fees:

Basic daily fee – an amount that everyone pays for day-to-day services. This fee is set at 85% of the single aged pension and is currently $61.96 per day.

Means-tested care fee – A contribution that some people pay towards the cost of their care. Services Australia 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.

Accommodation payment – Some people may need to pay an accommodation payment depending on an assessment of income and assets. This is in the form of a lump sum (refundable accommodation deposit) or daily payment (daily accommodation payment) or a combination of both.

For residents entering care on or after 1 July 2014, please refer to our Accommodation Pricing Schedule – 1 April 2024

Additional information on fees and charges is also available from My Aged Care.
