Day respite: this option gives individuals the opportunity to have the benefits of residential care on a short terms basis. Either for a day, or an overnight stay. Meals and care are provided for the duration of their stay, and individuals are invited to participate in the leisure and lifestyle options available at the home.
Respite: respite care is ideal for when family and friends need a short break from caring for their loved one, or when an elderly person has left hospital and is not quite ready to return. Generally with a minimum requirement of two weeks, your loved one can stay, and you can rest assured that your loved one will be cared for in your absence. Meals, laundry, cleaning and any clinical care required are all provided. Residents are also encouraged to participate in the leisure and lifestyle options available.
Permanent: permanent care is when your loved one moves into one of the homes. They have the benefits of 24 hours care, beautiful, homely accommodation, meals and domestic services all provided for them, and social and mental stimulation through the leisure and lifestyle options. Care is tailored to the individuals’ needs and interests.
Dementia care: all Japara homes have the capability to care for those living with dementia, with some homes having dedicated spaces for those who need a specialised environment.
All meals are cooked fresh by experienced cooks. Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are all provided at the home, and the cost is included as part of the daily care fee. In designing the care plan for residents, any allergies, likes and dislikes are recorded, therefore tailoring the menu for individuals.
The leisure and lifestyle options available at each Japara home, are based on the interests and hobbies of those living there. Programs are available 7 days a week, however, the individual can decide which options they choose to participate in. Whether it’s joining in the men’s group, going out on bus outings, joining the art classes or going on the daily exercise walks.

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
