About Hallam

*Japara Hallam is currently undergoing a significant refurbishment that is due for completion by mid-2020. Included in this exciting development are new private resident rooms, dining and lounge facilities, a beauty salon, al fresco dining options and new gardens.*

Set among large, beautiful gardens, Japara Hallam is a welcoming and family-friendly home delivering a new benchmark of aged care living to the area.

Featuring a range of single and double rooms, Japara Hallam is renowned for its high level of comfort, care and personal attention given to every one of our residents. From our beautiful courtyards and gardens, to our movie theatre and bird aviary, you’ll find living with us to be comfortable and rewarding, with an engaging lifestyle program designed to suit each individual.

Our home is ideally located in the heart of Hallam. Our residents enjoy heading out with visitors for walks or picnic lunches around Lysterfield Lake and the Berwick Botanical Gardens. Fountain Gate and Endeavour Hills shopping centres are nearby, as is the Monash Freeway to make visiting easy.

Our home also has a relationship with Elite Geriatricians, meaning a Geriatrician visits the home regularly at no extra cost to the residents.

Japara Hallam also offers Day Respite Care, find out more.

Fees and charges

Description RAD DAP*

Shared bathrooms, accommodation or both.

$160,000 $21.83

*As at 1 October 2019

What are these fees and charges?

RAD stands for Refundable Accommodation Deposit. It is a lump sum payment to the aged care provider. The full RAD amount is refunded upon departure of the facility and is 100% guaranteed by the government.

DAP stands for Daily Accommodation Payment. As an alternative to paying your Accommodation Payment as a lump sum, you can pay periodic payments, which are based on a daily fee and billed monthly. The DAP is not refundable when you leave the aged care home. The DAP amount is based on the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR), which is set by the government, and the agreed price of the room/suite you are interested in.

Daily Accommodation Payments (DAP) are calculated based on the government set Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR). As at 1 October 2019, the MPIR is 4.98%.

To calculate the equivalent DAP, multiply the Refundable Accommodation Deposit by the MPIR and divide by 365 for the daily rate. For a combination RAD/DAP payment, multiply the remainder of the RAD by the MPIR and divide by 365. For example, the DAP on 50% of a $350,000 RAD is determined by: [(50% x $350,000) x MPIR]/365 = ($175,000 X 4.98%)/ 365 = $23.88 per day.

Additional fees that may apply:

  • The above accommodation charges do not apply to concessional/fully supported residents.
  • The government-set Daily Care Fee is in addition to the above accommodation charges, and is currently set at $51.63
  • Other government charges, such as the Means Tested Care Fee, may apply. Please speak with the Manager for further information.
