Cost Involved

Daily Care Fee

This fee is paid by all residents regardless of their personal financial status.  It is set by the government at 85% of the full single age pension and is indexed every six months.

Means Tested Fee

This fee is also set by government and is based on income and assets.

Extra Service Fee

An additional daily fee is payable by residents living in the Extra Service Wing.

Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)

The refundable accommodation deposit is basically an interest free loan to Lynden.  We invest the money and keep the interest earned.  When the resident is discharged the RAD is repaid.   In Extra Services the bond is fixed but in standard low care the value of the bond is negotiated directly with you.
