Costs

As of July 1 2014, the new Aged Care Reforms commenced. From this date, there is no distinction between high and low care, and there is a cost associated with each bed type for those who have the means to pay. There is however, still a limited amount of beds available for people who are eligible to be fully supported by the Department of Social Services. For our detailed cost information please visit My Aged Care website.
