Our Fees

St Louis Nursing Home has been accredited as an “Extra Service” nursing home. There are only a small number with this accreditation in South Australia. “Extra Service” means we provide a significantly higher level of aged care services to our residents for their care and wellbeing.

St Louis Nursing Homes fees are set by the Department of Health, the Department of Human Services and the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner who approves our Extra Service fees. 

The fee structure at St Louis Aged Care consists of four parts:

Basic Daily Care Fee

Covers basic expenses and is set by the Department of Health that is reviewed and updated quarterly.

Extra Service Fee

This fee is set at $37.97 per day and covers expenses associated with the additional services provided at St Louis. See below for the extra services list.

Means-tested Care Fee

This fee is set by Centrelink based on an assessment of a resident’s income and assets. Residents are not obligated to submit their income/assets for assessment. However, non-disclosure to Centrelink results in payment of the maximum means-tested fee. This fee is subject to an annual and lifetime cap. Please refer to the My Aged Care website for the means-tested fee calculator.

Accommodation Payment

The accommodation payment is either a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP), or a combination of both. The DAP is determined by the interest rates published by the Department of Health at the time of entry to permanent care.
