Accommodation for women who are qualified as ‘supported’, previously referred to as concessional.
We welcome women who qualify as supported, concessional or partially supported*. This means they are in receipt of the aged pension but without other means to contribute to their care.
If fully supported, the Consumer pays 85% of their pension towards the cost of their accommodation and services received, with most other costs being subsidised by the Commonwealth Government. (As such, no RAD or DAP is required.)
*Government assistance eligibility for Consumers entering a Residential facility after 1 July 2014 is determined under means testing arrangements involving a combined income and asset test. Prospective Consumers must complete an Assets and Income Assessment application which will determine whether any additional fees are required. Advice about your eligibility is available either from Centrelink or DVA, and there is further information on www.myagedcare.gov.au.
Accommodation Pricing for Consumers who qualify to pay a RAD and/or DAP, ie a Refundable Accommodation Deposit and/or a Daily Accommodation Payment.
Since 1 July 2014, Consumers are able to choose how they pay the agreed accommodation price. Consumers have three choices to pay this amount as per the pricing list below:
- either as a lump sum refundable deposit, similar to an accommodation bond, this is called a Residential Accommodation Deposit (RAD)
- a periodic payment, called a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP)
- or a combination of both.
In cases where no lump sum payment is received, or when the combination option is selected, Residency by Dillons Fremantle will require the Consumer to complete the guarantee and indemnity provisions in the agreement.
