Close by the Swan River and in the heart of Como is our second extraordinary site, with views over trees from all sides of the building. The 99 private suites are located over three residential floors. The building is contemporary on the outside, and richly detailed on the inside. The quality of light, fitout and decoration makes Berrington Como truly a delight.
We will take the time to carefully explain all the financial considerations with you when you meet with us. The provision of aged care is a partnership between our residents, the government and Berrington. The costs are a combination of four components:
- Accommodation charge (called a Resident Accommodation Deposit, or RAD). This is between $795,000 and $895,000. This is guaranteed by the government and is 100% refundable on your exit.
- Basic Daily Living charge. This contributes to basic services and is set by the government at 85% of the single aged pension (currently $49.07/day).
- Care Services. This component covers the clinical and care services, as is mean-tested by the government. Your contribution may be assessed between no charge and a maximum of $26,380 per year.
- Berrington Club Advantage. This pays for the unique additional services and qualities of Berrington Como. The list is extensive, and ranges from the exceptional built environment, to a-la-carte dining with professional wait-staff, complimentary exceptional wines and coffees, a huge range of activities and entertainments and a seven days-a-week concierge. The Berrington Club Advantage costs $55/day.
We will do everything we can to explain and to discuss some flexible options with you, including the possibility of deferring some of the fees until your exit.
