Respite Care Fees & Charges
Respite care at St Catherine's is for a minimum of a two week continual period.
All residents are asked to pay a basic daily fee. This is a contribution towards their day-to-day living costs such as meals, cleaning, laundry, heating and cooling, as well as social activities.
This fee is set out by the Government and equates to 85% of the full pension. The fee amount will be reviewed on the 20th March and 20th September each year in line with the pension increase. Everyone in aged care is required to pay this fee unless they are experiencing financial hardship which will be determined by Centrelink.
