aged care, providing three options of payment for accommodation. Above this,
there is a Rental Fee which at the 1st of July 2016 is $45.84.

Residents will have the option to pay a RAD (Residential
Accommodation Deposit - previously known as a bond) or a DAP (Daily
Accommodation Payment - previously known as the accommodation charge), or a
combination of both RAD & DAP.


RAD: A refundable deposit paid as a lump sum amount. The
maximum refundable accommodation deposit at Touriandi Lodge is $290,000. This
is an absolute maximum figure and may be less depending on the individual's
financial assessment, as discounts can apply.

Terms and Conditions (RAD & DAP):


A RAD or DAP is only applicable if a client has assets
exceeding $48,500. (subject to change March and September every year.) The
default option is a DAP, and it starts from the date of entry into the
facility. But you do have 28 days to decide which option works for you.


The basic fortnightly rental at Touriandi Lodge is 85% of
the full Aged Pension. Additional payments are determined by the Department of
Health & Ageing according to a person’s income.
