About Rye Sands

Ideally positioned in a quiet setting and just moments away from the beach and town centre, Rye Sands is a brand new care home from Japara, designed to deliver a new benchmark of aged care living to the Mornington Peninsula.

Rye Sands provides every modern convenience for up to 99 residents. Living with us means enjoying time with friends in the spacious lounge and gardens or our own on-site café. Settle in to one of our modern rooms, each with private ensuites, or head out to enjoy the friendly seaside community of Rye at your door.

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

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 July 2019, the MPIR is 5.54%.

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 5.54%)/ 365 = $26.56 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 $51.21
  • Other government charges, such as the Means Tested Care Fee, may apply. Please speak with the Manager for further information.
