Randwick 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 Randwick ranges from $185.67 per day for a Classic Room up to $296.52 per day for a Suite. 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 - Classic Room $850,000, Deluxe Room $950,000, Suite $1,550,000.
An example of how daily rates by room type are reduced by the payment of a $300,000 RAD appears below:

Montefiore is committed to providing quality care and accommodation to all the community, including the financially disadvantaged. Our Admissions Review Committee, in conjunction with the Foundation, will consider all applications from a resident or their family who may be eligible for this assistance.
OTHER FEES & CHARGES
- Extra Service Status - Our nursing home and Special Care (dementia) unit have been awarded Extra Service Status by the Commonwealth Government in recognition of the higher standard of service and accommodation than provided by most other aged care facilities. Residency in these areas of the Home attracts an additional fee of $46.60 per day.
- Means Tested Fee – If you receive income from sources other than the aged pension, and/or own assets, you may be eligible to pay a Means Tested Fee. This is an additional Government fee and could be a maximum of $240.00 per day. To obtain an estimate of this fee, Residents are advised to use the Residential Care Fee Estimator available on the myagedcare website: http://www.myagedcare.gov.au/fee-estimator/residential-care, or seek their own financial advice regarding this fee.
- The Montefiore Oral Health Action Plan Randwick (MOHAP) - An oral health levy of $1 per day is charged as part of the preventative oral care plan. For this, each resident will receive a comprehensive dental examination with one of our Montefiore dentists, and 3 scale and cleans with the dental hygienist per year.
Residents have their own rooms with en-suite and air-conditioning, ensuring privacy and the added security of an autonomous space of their own.
