Basic Daily Care Fee

The Basic Daily Care Fee (BDCF) is paid by everyone. It is set by the Commonwealth Government and is approximately 85% of the single Aged Pension. The BDCF covers all living expenses and contributes to the costs of other services such as meals, personal care, recreation activities, laundry, cleaning and nursing care

Current daily rate $61.96

Means Tested Care Fee

The Means Tested Care Fee (MTCF) is paid by residents who exceed the government’s first assets and income threshold. As the BDCF does not cover 100% of the costs incurred by an aged care facility in providing its services, residents who are deemed to have the financial means are required to contribute more towards the cost of their own care. The MTCF varies depending on the asset and income level of the resident.

Annual Cap $33,309.29                   

Lifetime Cap $79,942.44

Accomodation Contribution

The Accommodation Contribution is paid by Low Means residents only. It is reviewed quarterly and is subject to change; however a resident will not be required to pay more than what is advised from their asset and income testing. The facility has restrictions on how much it may charge based on its Low Means resident ratio and whether or not the facility is newly refurbished. The Accommodation Contribution may be paid as a lump sun equivalent, known as a Refundable Accommodation Contribution, which is 100% refundable.

Current maximum daily rate $68.14

The Janus Approach | Caring for unique individuals

The Janus Approach aspires to continually improve and enhance the quality of life with all residents by transforming the culture of care in our facilities from task focussed to truly person-centered with six Janus keys at present.

Dignity and Person-centred Care

The Janus Approach ensures that a comprehensive life history or “Life Story” is gathered for each resident in partnership with the resident and families who wish to be involved. From this life story and with resident and family collaboration, staff are able to determine what quality of life means to each resident. Life stories are taken by staff who have received specific training in this area of assessment and are generally conducted over several weeks as a relationship of trust is built with the individual resident (or family). Read more

Meaningful Engagement & Spirituality

The Janus Approach recognises that all individuals have spiritual needs which may not always be based on religious belief or lack of belief. The need for social and leisure programs form an integral part of daily living that have purpose, through enhancing and strengthening the physical and psycho-social capabilities of the resident and increasing self-esteem, self-worth, connection and meaning. Read More

Making Eating Social & Sensational (MESS)

The MESS (Making Eating Social and Sensational) recognises that there is more to meals than just nutrition alone, there are also significant positive social outcomes of sharing a meal or mid-meal snack, as well as those meals that are consumed being exciting for the senses. Read More

Mental Health

Mental health illness and disorders are as important as physical care needs and often have as great an impact on physical and social wellbeing. Some examples of mental health conditions experienced by residents within RSL Care SA are depression, anxiety and confusion. Read More

Sexuality and Intimacy

The Janus Approach recognises that the need for love, affection, physical closeness and contact continues throughout life, including for residents who are living within an aged care setting. People living in an aged care facility will often still have sexual desires and be capable of acting on those desires, as well as having a need to express themselves sexually, however, this may be difficult for residents to disclose as it has always been a topic kept private or only shared with people they trust. Read More

Palliative Approach

The Janus Approach adheres to the Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care (2005). This approach ensures that residents with life limiting illnesses are afforded quality of life throughout their journey within the residential aged care setting. This Janus Key affirms life and respects dying as a normal process. It neither hastens nor postpones death, but rather aims to enhance the quality of life whilst also positively influencing the course of the illness. Read More
