Accommodation Options & Supports
Residential aged care fee arrangements involve accommodation fees and care fees. For some people in some circumstances there may be other expenses.
If your income and assets are over a certain amount you will be asked to make a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) via a contractual agreement with Ballan District Health & Care. If your income and assets are below a certain amount the Australian Government may pay for part or all of your accommodation costs. The Department of Human Services will advise you if you are required to make a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) instead of, or in combination with, a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD).
The table below shows the three residential aged care room types available at Ballan District Health & Care and the maximum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) and Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) you may be asked to pay. To enquire about examples of combined RAD and DAP accommodation fee arrangements, please contact the Ballan District Health & Care Aged Care Manager on (03) 5368 1100.
