In the heart of Perth’s western suburbs is our original facility, opened in April 2013.
This building is in the style of a French chateau, with beautifully crafted public, private and outdoor spaces. Berrington Subiaco quickly became famous around Australia – as the new benchmark for aged care facilities. The 112 private suites are arranged over three floors, and the gardens are a delight.
Berrington achieves a rare mix of superb modern amenities, supported by staff who ensure the very best of care is available for residents, creating a warm, cosy, friendly and inviting atmosphere - a wonderful combination.
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 up to $1.25m. 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 Subiaco. 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.
