Explaining Costs & Fees in Residential Aged Care

Moving into a residential care home is a big decision and it is important to understand the costs and fees associated with care so that you and your family can choose the home, accommodation type and payment option that best meets your needs. The fees that your pay cover the cost of the care you receive and your accommodation in an aged care home.

While aged care fees are subsidised by the Australian Government, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care and accommodation if you can afford to do so.

We strongly recommend that you seek independent financial advice to help you choose the right option for you.
