This fee is set up by the Department of Human Services. All aged care residents are asked to pay $60.86 for day-to-day services.
- Accommodation payment
Based on your Income and Asset Assessment outcome, the Department of Human Services will advise whether you are required to make an accommodation contribution, or full payment for your room.
The maximum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) and the Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) for Byron Aged Care as of October 1, 2023 are outlined in the table below. Facilities are able to charge less than the advertised maximum charges, but cannot charge more.
New residents can choose how they wish to pay the agreed accommodation fee:
