Other Information

Residential Care beds: 58

RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village opened in 2014 to meet the growing needs of older Australians. The Village incorporates the latest design innovations to create a welcoming home for residents where the highest quality of care can be delivered.

The Village provides care and accommodation for 58 older Australians and includes a secure area with gardens for those living with dementia.

All rooms are single with ensuite and generously proportioned. Residents have access to a range of internal and external rest and entertaining areas. Within each wing residents can also enjoy a smaller lounge room and private entertainment areas.

RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village is proud to offer residents quality meals prepared onsite by our own professional Chefs.

Menus are changed seasonally and developed with residents’ tastes and preferences in mind. In addition to our regular meal services, residents are welcome to help themselves to fresh fruit and snacks throughout the day and night.

 

History

The RFBI was founded in 1880 to assist the poor and needy during a time when there were no government funded social welfare programs. Since then, we have diversified our caring role through the establishment of aged care facilities throughout NSW and the ACT.

This means that although it is a brand new facility, RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village is backed by over 135 years of caring as provided by RFBI.

Planning for the state of the art facility began in 2010 with the official opening taking place in November 2015.

Facilities

RFBI Raleigh Urunga Masonic Village includes a 38 bed residential care plus a 20 bed dementia specific unit.

Care staff are available 24 hours a day with a registered nurse on duty seven days a week and on-call after hours.

The grounds are beautifully set with manicured gardens and a lovely leafy outlook.

Payment options


As of the 1st July 2014, new residents have greater choice on how to pay for their accommodation costs. These choices include;

  1. Residents can choose to pay for accommodation by a refundable deposit (RAD) paid as a lump sum,
  2. A daily payment (DAP), or
  3. A combination of both

A daily payment accrues daily and is paid periodically (e.g. fortnightly). A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments. As RFBI offers a variety of accommodation options and prices we encourage you and your family to discuss your needs with a financial adviser to ensure that you are receiving the best financial outcome available to you.

Our published Accommodation Payment prices are our maximum rates and will apply for those with adequate financial means.

Residents with limited assets may be treated as “supported” by the Department of Social Services. This means that you will not be required to pay the published Accommodation Payment. If you are not treated as “supported”, but affordability is still a factor, be assured this will not necessarily affect your eligibility for accommodation.

The Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) amounts quoted above are current as of today and may change (in line with interest rate adjustments) for entry dates after the 1st July. When there are changes to the interest rate RFBI will update the new DAP’s based on the new quarterly interest rate.
