Your quick guide to Residential Aged Care Fees and Charges

Residential Aged Care fees vary depending on an individual’s assets and income. RSL Care SA offers a number of accommodation options across all facilities, from platinum single rooms with private ensuites to share rooms with an ensuite. Accommodation fees vary depending
on the accommodation type.

Low assets and Income Resident

To ensure prospective residents with low assets and income are not disadvantaged from being offered permanent placement, accredited aged care facilities must reserve a percentage of their beds for ‘low means’ residents.


Assets between $0.00 and $59,500, and Income below $32,195.80.

  • Basic Daily Care Fee only

Assets between $59,500 and $201,231.20, and income below $62,727.60.

Higher asset and Income Resident

Assets above $201,231.20 and income above $62,727.60.

  • Basic Daily Care Fee

  • Means Tested Care Fee

Figures shown reflect the Department of Health Schedule of Fees and Charges for Residential and Home Care from 20th March 2024.

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 Battle of Romani

The facility is named after the battle of Romani, which was fought between the 3rd and 5th of August 1916. The battle of Romani was one of the most important and decisive victories in WW1. It was a battle that finally put a stop to the Turkish threat to the Suez Canal and marked the beginning of the British and Australian forces’ drive out of Egypt and into Palestine. The British defences were sited amidst a series of towering sand dunes, 35 kilometres east of the canal, which the Turks tried to outflank to the south early on 4 August. Initially, only the 1st Light Horse Brigade was in position to meet the Turkish attack. Heavily outnumbered it was forced to fall back but as the day progressed both mounted and infantry reinforcements steadily arrived, allowing the position to be stabilized around a massive dune known as Mount Royston, named after the charismatic light horse officer Lieutenant Colonel “Galloping Jack” Royston. The position was held throughout the night and before dawn the next morning the 1st and 2nd Light Horse Brigades advanced on foot with the bayonet. Turkish resistance collapsed at this point, and large numbers of prisoners were taken. At 6.30 am fresh troops of the 3rd Light Brigade were turned loose in pursuit of the retreating Turks.

136 Australians died in the battle, many of them from country and rural areas.
