Entry into McLean Care® Residential

To enter McLean care® you need an assessment called ACAT Assessment. This assessment lets us know what type of care you or your loved one may require and allows us to claim government funding to reduce your fees. Aged care assessments are conducted by local ACAT teams and your GP can assist with arranging an assessment.

FInd them at http://www.myagedcare.gov.au/eligibility-and-assessment/acat-assessments

To establish the fees you may be asked to pay, your income and assets will be taken into account. You may be asked to pay one or more of the following fees:

A Basic Daily Fee: This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. For some people this is the only fee they are required to pay.  Current fee information is available on the My Aged Care website: http://www.myagedcare.gov.au/considering-aged-care-home/fees-and-charges or by contacting us on 0267217300.

A Means - Tested Care Fee: This is an additional contribution towards the cost of care that some people may be required to pay. The Department of Human Services will work out if you are required to pay this fee based on an assessment of your income and assets, and will advise you of the amount.

If you are required to pay additional an additional fee, the Government will reduce the subsidy that it pays McLean Care™ by the same amount they are charging you.  The Government also limits what this fee can be.   You can contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit the Residential Care Fee Estimator at My Aged Care:

An Accommodation PaymentThis is for your accommodation in the home. Some people will have their accommodation costs met in full or part by the Australian Government, while others will need to pay the accommodation price agreed with the aged care home. The Department of Human Services will advise you which applies to you based on an assessment of your income and assets.

 The Government will advise you which applies to you based on an assessment of your income and assets.  The maximum accommodation payments you will be asked to pay is $340,000, but only if you have the income and assets to be able to pay.  

The maximum accommodation payment at McLean Care™ Ltd is $340,000. The interest rate used is the maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR) current at date of entry. The interest rate is 5.76% per annum.

The maximum accommodation payment can be paid as:
• A Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) of $340,000.
• A Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) of $53.65.
• A combination of a RAD and a DAP, for example;
o A 31 % RAD (deposit) of $100,000 plus a 69% DAP of $37.87.
• A RAD with a draw down, for example;
o A RAD of $100,000 with a monthly draw down of a $37.87 DAP with draw down amounts charged at a percentage of 5.76%p.a.

Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable deposit, a daily payment, or a combination of both.

A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount. A daily payment accrues daily is paid monthly. A daily payment drawn from a refundable deposit will accrue daily and be drawn monthly from the deposit. A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.

If you believe that you will face financial hardship in paying for your aged care costs, you can ask for financial hardship assistance.
