  Lorikeet House

You can be asked by an aged care home to pay accommodation costs.  This is called an ‘accommodation payment.’  The maximum room price is the maximum accommodation payment that you can be charged for the room.

Maximum price for room

The current maximum price that you can be charged for this room is a refundable deposit of $400,000.00 or daily payments of $62.80 or a combination of both.

You have 28 days after entering a home to decide how you want to pay your accommodation payment. You can chose:

  • A refundable accommodation deposit which is a lump sum payment, the balance of which is refunded when you leave.
  • A daily accommodation payment which is a rental style payment that is paid on a regular basis, payable up to a month in advance, and is not refundable.
  • A combination of the two.

Explanation of payment options

Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable deposit, a daily payment, or a combination of both. A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount. A daily payment accrues daily and is paid periodically, for example monthly. A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.

You can choose to pay for your accommodation payment with both a part lump sum refundable accommodation deposit and ongoing rental style daily accommodation payments. You can negotiate the amount of lump sum and rental style payments with the home.

Example of a combination payment for room

For this room a resident could pay, for example, 50% of the price by a refundable deposit of $200,000.00 and 50% of the price by daily payments of $31.40.
