24th February 2020 Topic - Aged Care

Speaker - Mathew Kelly, Goldsborough Financial Services

In a wide ranging presentation to over 90 members, Mr Kelly canvassed most, if not all, options for independent living in retirement including:
CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program) or the four level Home Care support package program (HCP). This program is subsidised by the Commonwealth Government, dependent on your capacity to pay. Entry to this program is through an ACAT(Aged Care Assessment Team). The Government’s website (or telephone enquiry 1800200 422) sets out the various options for nursing home care. They are:
Option one. The RAD (Refundable Accommodation Deposit).
Option two. The DAP (Daily Accommodation Payment).
Option three. A combination of options 1 and 2.
Mathew also covered all the independent living and funding options.
