To complement our hospital level care unit we also have Residential Care Apartments. These rooms are larger than the regular rooms and have a private lounge, en-suite and kitchen area. Our apartments have one bedroom and a roomy lounge. Residents are cared for in their apartment at any level - weather rest home or hospital - this apartment is their home.
These are initially purchased either by the family or the individual with an ongoing residential care fee - the same payment required anywhere once assessed as needing 24 hour care. This will be paid privately or via the super and government subsidy depending on asset thresholds (this is established by WINZ not EMRCC staff).
