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 accommodation payment accrues daily and is paid periodically (e.g. fortnightly). A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily.

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 Government.

This means that you will not be required to pay the 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 Room Prices (RAD) and 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 based on the new quarterly interest rate.

Additional services (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room

At this Village we are pleased offer an Additional Services Package at a cost of $14 per day that is payable by all non-supported residents. This includes a 43″ Smart TV, unlimited WiFi internet access, themed village events, wine or beer/soft drinks with lunch, weekly family happy hour and local entertainers. More details are available at the village. Other services that you can access at additional cost include hairdressing, café/kiosk purchases, telephone connection and line rental and Foxtel connection.

In 1980 the Freemasons’ Benevolent Institution donated a hundred and fifty thousand dollars to help build a retirement village in West Wyalong. The Waratah Retirement Village was officially opened in 1982. The village expanded in 1987 to cater for fifteen extra care and memory support units for those living with dementia, followed by twenty beds in 1999.

On the 1st of February 2012, we proudly took over ownership from Bland Shire council.
