Home Care – Fee Estimator
Residential Care - Fee Estimator
The Residential Care fee estimator provides an indication of the fees and charges you may be asked to pay if you enter an aged care home on or after 1 July 2014. Based on the information you provide, it estimates your;
- Basic daily fee
- Means-tested care fee
- Accommodation payment.
The actual fees you may be asked to pay will depend on your income and assets as assessed by the Department of Human Services or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
My Aged Care can assist you with using these fee estimators or can provide you with an estimate over the phone. Before you call you should have your financial information ready, especially details of your various forms of income and assets.
