About Kingston Gardens

Located in the heart of friendly Springvale South, Kingston Gardens offers a social and scenic place to call home.

Most of our rooms look onto our beautifully maintained gardens and courtyards — the perfect place to enjoy time with fellow residents and visiting friends and family. Verandas, paved pathways and outdoor seating also provide the ideal spot for some quiet time with a book or just enjoying the view.

With an emphasis on community, we welcome visitors at any time. We also invite all residents to Happy Hour – a weekly event where everyone can come together and socialise. The newly extended and refurbished home has all the luxuries of a brand new home, while already being an established and well-loved part of the neighborhood.

We look forward to welcoming you here to enjoy all Japara can offer, in the most picturesque of settings.

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 20 September 2018, the MPIR is 5.96%.

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 5.96%)/ 365 = $28.58 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 $50.66
  • Other government charges, such as the Means Tested Care Fee, may apply. Please speak with the Manager for further information.
