For a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) of $550,000 the equivalent Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) increases to $126.27 pd ($46,090 pa).
The Reserve Bank increased the cash rate again in November 2023, which has a flow-on impact to the MPIR. This is now the highest MPIR since January 2012 and more than double the MPIR that applied just a little over one year ago.
Also the refurbished Daily Accommodation Contribution (DAC) rate of $66.94 pd means an equivalent Refundable Accommodation Contribution (RAC) of $291,564. In June 2022 the RAC was $544,719, meaning that aged care homes that are “RAD-focused” are now less likely to look at fully supported residents if they have exceeded their 40% supported ratio, as the RAC has now dropped below $300,000.
The MPIR increase to 8.38% will have a major impact on residents as they enter an aged care home from
From , the Government has started to use the STAR RATING system for registered aged care homes (new homes will be allocated a Star Rating after 12 months of operation).
Star Ratings are displayed on the Aged Care Provider Search within the My Aged Care website.
The Star Rating is based upon 5 levels with the middle rating denoting only a minimum baseline of ‘Acceptable’ care quality and services.
The Star Rating System has revealed that 41 % of aged care homes are performing at a 5-star (excellent) or 4-star (good) level.
Star Ratings also reveal that astonishingly 5 % are performing below the minimum standards set, receiving a dismal and disturbing (Improvement Needed) or (Significant Improvement Needed) Star Rating.
We support full public disclosure of those aged care homes that are making the effort to exceed the regulated standards and community expectations.
We also support the naming of aged care homes that do not currently provide quality levels of aged care services to the frail elderly and vulnerable members of our community.
The Star Rating system is a key component of the aim for continuous improvement to our aged care system.
