ROOM TYPES AND PRICING EXPLAINED
Your contribution towards the cost of care, services and accommodation is subject to your individual financial circumstances, and is determined by the Government.
The accommodation fee covers your room, bathroom facilities and access to all communal areas. There are 3 ways to pay the accommodation fee.
- RAD1 (Refundable Accommodation Deposit) – fee paid as a lump sum; you have up to 6 months to pay. A DAP will apply until paid.
- DAP2 (Daily Accommodation Payment) – fee paid as a daily payment, calculated using the Government-approved interest rate. This rate will vary from time to time but is fixed at the date of admission.
- RAD & DAP combination payment – This provides you with the opportunity to combine the lump sum and daily payment options.
