Reputation, Commitment and Dedication
For many years, Jewish Care has maintained the highest reputation in aged care service. All our residences consistently receive perfect accreditation scores and - thanks to our professional, committed staff - are places of warmth and love. These outcomes reflect our ongoing dedication to providing the very best of care to all who need it.
We offer a two-tiered level of accommodation and service.
*Note: Not all accommodation levels are available at all residences and are dependent on availability.
The best of residential care where all of your needs are met. Traditional service is for clients with limited capacity to pay an accomodation payment and/or are solely reliant on the aged care pension. An example is a potential client with no substantial assets or savings. Many clients of this service are Australian pensioners and are assisted by the Commonwealth government to meet the costs of accommodation. This service package is offered at Gary Smorgon House, Montefiore Homes Community Residence and Smorgon Family Nursing Home.
The best of residential care where all of your needs are met, and the little extras taken care of. Classic service is for clients with the capacity to pay an accomodation payment and additional income which to pay for extra services. This service package is offered at Gary Smorgon House.
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 and is paid periodically, for example monthly. A combination payment includes a partial lump sum and daily payments.
Here is an example of Combination Accommodation Payments of 50% refundable deposit and 50% daily payment:
The room price is $500,000.
Accommodation payment interest is set at 5.70%
The resident pays 50% RAD on admission = $250,000
The remaining 50% ($250,000) paid as a DAP
The ongoing DAP is $39.04 ($250,000 x 5.70% /365 days)
