When entering residential aged care, the assessment of your assets and income determines what you may need to pay to your service provider. The three main types of fees/payment you may be asked to pay include:

  • The basic daily fee – for all care recipients in permanent aged care.
  • A means tested care fee – paid in accordance with your financial circumstances.
  • An accommodation payment – a contribution towards accommodation costs.
