There are 4 types of accommodation types available within Arcare’s aged care residences: fully and partially government supported, standard accommodation and extra services accommodation.
1&2. Fully or partially Government supported accommodation
We offer fully supported suites where no accommodation contribution is required, or partially supported suites where only a very small accommodation contribution is required from the in coming resident.
To check for eligibility for fully or partially supported accommodation, download an Assets and Income Assessment Form at www.humanservices.gov.au, fill it in and then submit to the government. For assistance please call Centrelink on 1800 227 475 or the Department of Veteran Affairs on 133 254.
3. Standard accommodation
These are the majority of aged care suites that are available at our aged care residences and are subject to an accommodation payment payable by the resident.
Each suite has a set price that is primarily determined by the features and location of the suite, the location of the residence and housing prices in the vicinity. The accommodation payment can take three forms – RAD, DAP or a combination of these. Click here to learn more about aged care feess and charges.
4. Extra Service Accommodation
Some residences provide extra service suites and superior lifestyle options that require an additional fee to be paid on top of the standard accommodaiton payment.
This is a daily charge and depending on the residence covers additional services such as FOXTEL, choice of meals, alcohol with dinner, WIFI and daily newspapers.
