Hunters Hill Fee Schedule
Fees and charges levied by residential aged care services, such as Montefiore, are regulated by the Commonwealth Government and can vary depending on a number of factors, such as whether you are a pensioner or non-pensioner and your level of assets.
In general, the cost of residency is a combination of a Daily Care Fee, relating to your ongoing care, and a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), relating to the type of room you choose.
The total cost of care and accommodation at Hunters Hill ranges from $122.33 per day for a Standard Room up to $154.00 per day for a Deluxe Room. This includes all meals, laundry, cleaning, and access to our comprehensive activity program and, of course, all the nursing care you may require.
REFUNDABLE ACCOMMODATION DEPOSITS (RAD)
Residents with sufficient assets are eligible to lodge a Refundable Accommodation Deposit with the Home.
The payment of a Refundable Accommodation Deposit is a secure and attractive method of funding residency at the Home. The Commonwealth Government guarantees the refund of the RAD upon departure.
The payment of a Refundable Accommodation Deposit reduces the amount you need to pay as a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP).
Each room has an applicable Refundable Accommodation Deposit value; (the full RAD) however, the maximum lump sum amount that the Home prefers upon entry is $300,000. The Full RAD’s are as follows – Hostel - Standard $450,000, Hostel Deluxe Room $650,000, High Care and Special Care Rooms $500,000.
