How to calculate the accommodation payments
Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable accommodation deposit (RAD), a daily accommodation payment (DAP), or a combination of both.
The DAP is calculated by multiplying the RAD (or the unpaid portion of the RAD) by the interest rate set by the government (currently 4.98% per annum) / 365 days (/100).
For example, $325,000 x 4.98%
365 / 100 = $44.34 DAP per day
Or a combination payment at 50% of the price by the RAD being $162,500 and 50% of the price by the DAP being $22.17 per day.
The basic daily care fee is in additional to the above accommodation charges.
If charges such as a means tested care fee is deemed relevant, they are also in additional to the above.
Fees for additional services apply at $19.90 per day and are separate to the above. Refer to management for further details.
For concessional/fully supported residents the above accommodation fees do not apply.
