The funding for residential aged care is a complex maze and critical area for an organisation’s financial success where providers need to ensure they are receiving all the funding they are entitled to. This course has been designed to explain in detail, with working examples; the intricacies of the funding of residential aged care for those who need or would like to understand how it works.

Who should attend this workshop? 

  • Chief Executive Officers/Board Members
  • Managers & Financial Officers
  • Nursing/Care Managers
  • Administrators & Administrative Staff

Objectives of the workshop include: 

  • An understanding of the detailed & complex funding arrangements.
  • Recognising the importance of information contained in the Payment Statement and how that information can be used in the management of the service.
  • Understanding the difference in funding and fees between residents who entered care from 1 July 2014 & those in care at 30 June 2014.
  • Understanding the role of the means tested amount in determining the Daily Accommodation Contributions (DACs) and the amount of the service’s accommodation supplement.
  • The possible need to vary DACs quarterly following the review of the means tested amount by DHS (Centrelink) or DVA.
  • Understanding that if a partly supported pays a Refundable Accommodation Contribution (RAC) will more than likely have to pay a DAC as well.
  • An explanation of the Prudential arrangements.
  • How financial benchmarking can assist in the management of a service.
