Because care centre pricing involves accommodation plus variable elements such as extra support services and means-tested government subsidies, calculating price can be a bit complicated.

We have provided explanations here and even a calculator to help you work out what your fees are likely to be, however if you need further assistance please contact our Customer Service Centre on 1300 26 26 26 and one or our experienced team members will be happy help you.


This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. This fee is set by the government and is 85% of the full pension. For some people this is the only fee they are required to pay.


This is an additional contribution towards the cost of care that some people may be required to pay. This fee is determined by the Department of Human Services (Centrelink), and is based on the amount of income and assets of the resident. Each person entering a care centre must complete the Centrelink form SA454.1407 “Permanent Residential Aged Care Request for a Combined Asset and Income Assessment” to have their means-tested care fee determined by Centrelink.


This is for your accommodation in the care centre. Some people will have their accommodation costs met in full or part by the Australian Government, while others will need to pay the accommodation payment. The Department of Human Services (Centrelink) will advise you which applies to you based on an assessment of your income and assets. Depending on your financial situation, you may be asked to pay the full Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or part of that deposit, referred to as a Refundable Accommodation Contribution (RAC).

An alternative to paying the RAD or RAC is paying the interest that Amana Living would have otherwise earned on the RAD or RAC. This interest payment is referred to as the Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or the Daily Accommodation Contribution (DAC).

Another alternative is to pay part of the RAD or RAC and pay the interest on the balance owing as a DAP or DAC.  Below is a calculator to show you different combinations of RAD/DAP for different room types at this care centre.

How much does residential care cost?

There are three components to care centre fees. The ‘basic daily fee’ is set by the Government at 85% of full pension. For some people, this is the only fee they will need to pay. There are also a means-tested care fee and an accommodation payment. These vary according to your ability to pay, which is determined by a Centrelink assessment.

Why would I choose an Amana Living care centre?

Amana Living has been offering care and services for older Western Australians for over 50 years. Our approach is to focus on the individual, paying close attention to their emotional, psychological and social needs, as well as providing top quality clinical and personal care round the clock.

Residents are encouraged to maintain as much independence as possible, to be involved in decision-making regarding the care and services they require, and to maintain connections with others.

In addition, our care centres offer some of the most spacious rooms in the industry, most with private ensuites, and many with private lounge rooms and kitchenettes.

How do I find out if I’m eligible for residential care?

Your first step is to contact your GP who will arrange for you to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT). If the assessment states that you have been approved for permanent admission into residential care, you are ready for the next step.

What are care centres?

Residential care centres provide permanent accommodation and 24-hour care and services for those who are no longer able to live in their own home.
