About Sandhurst

Japara Sandhurst is a sanctuary for those seeking an effortless lifestyle. With a bus stop close by, everything you need is within easy reach, ideally located close to parks, wetlands and local shops in a peaceful seaside community,

Start the day with a morning walk, before taking a cooking class or a coach trip to the seaside. Later on, welcome your guests for a barbecue in our private courtyard or enjoy coffee and cake at a nearby cafe. Enjoy a barbecue in our private courtyard with visiting family or friends or soak up the tranquillity in the beautiful garden surrounds.

With our quiet single rooms offering views to the lush gardens, and our caring team of staff and dedicated volunteers, everything is in place for a relaxed lifestyle with everything you need.

Our home 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 20 March 2019, the MPIR is 5.94%.

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 5.94%)/ 365 = $28.48 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.
