About Our Community
Located in the peaceful suburb of Canberra’s Red Hill, Carey Gardens is home to a friendly community of residents who enjoy their independence with support from us for their lower care needs.
Treasured for its landscaped courtyards, tranquil fishpond and inviting barbeque area, the well-tended grounds of Carey Gardens encourage you to put your feet up and breathe in the fresh open air.
Our spacious rooms continue the spirit of open living with ample storage space, built-in wardrobes and emergency-monitoring systems for your comfort and security. Glass passageways link each of our wings – providing light and airy access to the dining room, lounge room and courtyards.
And if you and your partner want to continue living together, we’ll help there too. Carey Gardens features a number of adjoining rooms, so you can continue to enjoy life side by side with the partner you love.
In our single rooms, you have greater flexibility to transform the space and make it your own. They are ideal for residents who are still relatively independent with lower care needs, however residents with higher care needs are still easily accommodated. Single rooms do come partially furnished with a bed, wardrobe, drawers, chair and desk. You are welcome to bring some smaller furniture items from home as well as other decorations to transform the space and make it your own sanctuary. You are never far from enjoying time with other residents and friends in our tastefully designed lounge and communal areas. Many of our single rooms come with ensuites – feel free to ask when you enquire.
All non-supported residents who have assets above the current partially supported cut off level will be required to pay either a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit or a combination of lump sum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) and the balance of the RAD as an equivalent Daily Payment (DAP). The pricing listed below is the maximum pricing for the category of the room and may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
To calculate the equivalent daily payment, the refundable accommodation deposit is multiplied by the current maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR)* and divided by 365 days.
For example, a refundable deposit of $550,000 would have an equivalent daily payment of:
i.e. ($550,000 x 5.78%) / 365 = $87.09 per day
