All residents pay a basic daily fee of 85% of the Australian Single Aged Care Pension. Depending on your circumstances, you may also need to pay an additional care fee and an accommodation charge for your room.
The additional care fee and accommodation charge are means tested by the Australian Government’s Department of Human Services. They will review your income and assets and advise you if you need to pay either fee. They will also advise you of the maximum accommodation charge, if any, Ozcare can ask you to pay.
The cost of your accommodation will also be based on the room and bathroom option that you choose (for example single or shared).
