Individual Rooms

In our single rooms, all care levels are 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.

Companion Rooms

Our residents love the benefits that come from the communal aspect of our shared rooms. Some shared rooms are double rooms for two residents, and other shared rooms can accommodate up to four residents. Beds in shared rooms also come with your own wardrobe, writing desk, drawers and a space to have a television if you desire. You are more than welcome to add decorations, pictures and other items and make it your space. Our shared rooms are ideal for residents who require higher levels of care.

Financials Explained

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 (RAD) or 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 5.76%) / 365 = $86.79 per day
