2.2 Resident contribution to their care and accommodation

People receiving aged care services are expected to make a financial contribution to the cost of their care and accommodation, if they can afford it. Some aged care fees are set by DSS at the same rate for all residents. Some fees are determined according to each individual's care needs and the level of their income and assets, capped at maximum rates set in the Aged Care legislation and the costs of the individual's care.
