As is expected of such a long-established facility you will feel as though you are entering a calm and welcoming home-like environment. Residents are provided with large, open lounge areas, comfortably furnished with individual recliner chairs and couches, and large TV (LCD) screens for ease of viewing, or may escape into quieter sitting rooms. Fresh, daily-made meals are served in the large open dining areas or alternatively, there is a private dining room for residents and family, designed to make you feel relaxed and at home.
Fees are payable for nursing home accommodation, living and nursing care services. Payment details can be discussed with Health Service staff or the Carelink Centre.
|Residential Accommodation Deposit (RAD)||Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP)|
Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable accommodation deposit, a daily payment, or a combination of both.
A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount. A daily payment accrues daily and is paid periodically, for example monthly. A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.
Combination payment example: An incoming resident may choose, for example, to pay 50% of their accommodation by a RAD and the other 50% through DAP. If this was the option chosen, then the resident would pay the prices outlined in the table below:
