What will it cost?
Costs are calculated according to the results of your assessment. They will vary according to your needs and the type of care accommodation you choose.
Government subsidies may be available to help pay your fees.
Fees for aged care are assessed as follows:
Basic daily fee
A contribution towards your daily living costs, such as nursing and personal care, meals, linen, laundry and electricity. All residents other than Australian ex-prisoners of war pay this fee.
Means-tested care fee
This fee is determined by your assessable income and assets. You’ll only pay this fee if your income and assets are over the minimum threshold.
This fee covers your accommodation and may be paid as a lump sum or as a daily fee (RAD/DAP*).
Please talk to us if you would like us to explain this further.
Selecting your room
At Ryman villages, our private rooms provide superior accommodation – the rooms are large, and each room has a private ensuite.
The room price (RAD/DAP*) depends on the type of room you select. This will be clearly outlined in your accommodation agreement.
If you have any questions about room prices or payment options, a village manager will be happy to answer them for you.
