Who We Help

We provide residential aged care services in a home-like environment. We don’t simply say Guildford Village is homely; it is purpose-built to provide a home-like environment. Our facility is suited to anyone who is eligible for residential aged care and is well designed to cater for people with dementia. We offer a range of in-house services, complemented by external services as well as a diverse activity and lifestyle program.

Why Choose Us?

We are not part of a large corporate group which means we are small enough to remember your name.While it is one thing to make bold statements about values, at Guildford Village, we truly live them. The home (nestled in beautiful historic Guildford) places an emphasis on traditional values and honour providing our ageing in-place residents a home in their retirement life. We strive to ensure your loved ones’ latter years are filled with love, laughter and joy, combined with holistic care.

We are unique in that we specialise in dementia care, enabling us to genuinely understand our residents’ varied needs and are dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of life possible.

Our residence is not simply contained within four walls. We have several spacious outdoor areas with beautiful gardens that create a calming, peaceful environment. Our residents use these spaces to enjoy quiet time to themselves, to emotionally recharge, to meditate or to chat with visitors and fellow residents. Our outdoor area is a hub for the various activities offered for the enjoyment of our residents.

As the facility is located adjacent to two parks, residents can take relaxing walks, are encouraged to chat with people from the local community, watch children play or just enjoy the views of the rose gardens and other outdoor delights. Our complementary services, activities and lifestyle program support a commitment to providing quality of life for our residents.

Our purpose-built facility has three cluster homes, each accommodating up to 10 residents and designed to house a small group of people with their own living and dining areas. This configuration enables us to provide person-centred care in a homely environment while allowing residents to enjoy both privacy and independence in a communal setting.

Each home’s dining and living areas are equipped with modern, comfortable furniture, a flat screen television, a kitchen, audio equipment and air-conditioning. Reflecting the history and character of Guildford, the house provides a stylish nod to the past, showcasing beautiful antiques. Our common areas enjoy stunning views of landscapes that have been designed to promote visual and aromatic stimulus for residents.

Our home’s distinctive and comparatively unified character is in part a product of the blend of architectural styles and settings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Our residents and visitors can enjoy the surrounding scenery of Guildford as we are conveniently located near cafés, shopping centres and Swan Valley attractions.

Our Services

We offer a range of in-house services, complemented by external services as well as a diverse activity and lifestyle program. We encourage our residents to participate in both our community-based activities and enjoy quiet time to themselves, so they can engage as much or as little as they like with our staff and other residents.

Guildford Village holds strong traditional values and celebrates special events, holidays and birthdays. This promotes a joyful and a consistently entertaining environment whilst acknowledging the individual desires of those who choose to participate. Our residents and visitors can enjoy the surrounding scenery of Guildford as we are conveniently located near cafés, shopping centres and Swan Valley attractions.

Fees

The fees and charges are determined by the Department of Social Services based on your ability to pay and individual circumstances at time of admission. Your admission options at Guildford Village can vary greatly based on your individual circumstances.

We recommend speaking to your Financial Adviser as we can only provide basic information. You will find further information about the aged care fees and charges on the Government’s “My Aged Care” website.

All residents in aged care, including people seeking respite care are required to pay a basic daily care fee as a contribution towards care and living expenses. The daily fee for all residents equates to 85% of the basic single age pension.

This is a lump sum payment for accommodation in an aged care home and is fully refundable when you leave the residence. This is the price of a room, in lump sum form, that residents have agreed to pay with the provider. Residents can pay the RAD in full or they can pay via a combination of a smaller RAD and a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP). Our maximum room price is $550,000. Further details can be found on government’s “My Aged Care” website.

The DAP is calculated as a daily cost that is charged fortnightly or monthly if the RAD has not been paid in full. The DAP is calculated as a percentage of the remaining RAD. For example, if the RAD on a room is $550,000 and no RAD is paid, then the resident will pay $89.81 as a DAP (based on the current 5.96% interest rate). Please note, in most circumstances, a percentage of the RAD is required as a deposit on the date of entry.

The resident can elect to pay a combination of a RAD and a DAP. For example, on a room with a RAD of $550,000, the resident can pay $300,000 upfront and the remaining $250,000 as a DAP. In this scenario the DAP would be $40.82 per day.

Residents (other than respite residents) may be asked to pay a care co-contribution fee depending on their income and their assets. The Government sets the amount a resident must pay direct to the aged care provider and reduces the care subsidies paid to the provider by the same amount.

Upon leaving the residence, the refundable deposit will be refunded in full, as long as it was not agreed for any amounts to be deducted from the refundable deposit – in which case it would be the balance that would be refunded. Amounts that can be deducted against the refundable deposit are the care co-contribution, the DAP, and additional benefits. In these cases, interest at 3.75% will be charged on the monthly balance of the amount deducted.

Where the resident requests or agrees to additional services being provided (such as newspapers, alcoholic drinks, additional outings etc.), these can be charged to their monthly account.

The Government provides care subsidies to ensure all residents receive the same standard of care in the residence.

A Resident Agreement protects both parties by formalising arrangements upon admission. As the Government determines fees after admission, the Resident Agreement refers to the maximum amount that could be charged for the various fees and charges.

Statements are issued early in each month and relate to the full month.
