The Costs of Aged Care When moving into aged care.

A resident is required to pay either a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), which is a lump sum, a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a combination of both. The amount payable is published on the aged care facility’s website, with RAD’s commonly in excess of $500,000. As the name suggests, the RAD is refunded when the resident leaves the facility, whereas the DAP payments are not. The facility will invest the RAD, but only the initial capital amount is returned (less any outstanding fees). The Federal Government provides a guarantee for repayment of the RAD. In addition to this a resident will need to pay a Basic Daily Fee, a Means Tested Care Fee and sometimes an Additional Services Fee. Rather than just relying upon a property sale to fund a RAD the Aged Care loan provides a number of significant emotional and financial benefits for the borrower and their family.
