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 eligible for support by the Department of Social Services.

This means that you will not be required to pay the published Accommodation Payment. If you are not 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.

Optional additional costs (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room

Services that require an additional fee include hairdressing, physiotherapy and podiatry, phone connection and Foxtel connection.

History

There has been aged care accommodation in Concord since 1959, when the Concord Senior Citizens’ Welfare Association opened Concord Senior Citizens’ Home. Accommodating 13 people, it ran for 40 years.

With a grant from the Federal Government and, in conjunction with RFBI, a new 50-bed residential care village, accommodating a 10-bed dementia unit was opened in late 1998 by His Excellency, the former Governor, the Hon Gordon Samuels AC.

In early 2004, a new memory care unit was opened, comprising 12 additional rooms, a large kitchen, dining room, lounge, doctor’s room, hairdresser’s salon, manager’s office and boardroom.
