The level of fees payable and other financial requirements will depend on the individual circumstances of the resident. The following comments provide an overview of the types of fees payable and the factors that are taken into account. Fees are set by the Commonwealth Department of Health & Ageing which regulates the industry at a national level.

CARE FEES – 2 Fees may apply

DAILY CARE FEE                 AS AT 20/03/2018  $50.16 PER DAY

A Daily Care Fee is payable by all residents at both our Seaton and Fulham facilities.This fee contributes towards living expenses, including meals, laundry, heating/cooling, and nursing and personal care. The daily care fee increases every March and September in line with pension increases and is determined by the Department of Health and Ageing.



A Means Tested Fee may also be payable by permanent residents. The fee is calculated by the Commonwealth in conjunction with Centrelink / DVA and is based on the value of the resident's net assets and income. Residents with higher net wealth should expect to pay this fee.

The Means Tested Fee is a daily fee payable from day of admission and is reviewed by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing quarterly. If a Means Tested Fee is payable, the Department of Health & Ageing will inform both the Resident and Saint Hilarion in writing following admission. Respite residents are exempt from this fee.  An estimate of this can be calculated using the My Aged Care Residential Care Fee Estimator.



As from July 1st 2014, Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by:

  • A refundable accomodation deposit (RAD); a refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount
  • A daily accomodation payment(DAP; a daily payment accrues daily as it is paid periodically, for example monthly  or
