Aged Care Decisions

Partner with Australia’s Largest Aged Care Placement Service

Aged Care Decisions is Australia’s largest aged care placement service for families – placing hundreds of families each month through our 100% free service.

We assist families with all elements of the aged care placement process – including shortlisting, matching and identifying appropriate aged care facility options.

For providers, Aged Care Decisions is able to provide highly qualified placement referrals at the point of placement, targeted on care level, financial profile and ACFI.

Importantly, Aged Care Decisions only charges a placement fee to providers if, and only if, a referral results in a new resident admission. The service is 100% risk free for providers – no joining fee, no registration fee, no ongoing fees.

What's the price?

Aged Care Decisions charges an aged care provider if, and only if, a referral ends up as an admission. No placement, no fee. The Placement Introduction Fee of $2350 ex GST is the same for every aged care facility across Australia, and is the same regardless of financial status of the resident. The fee is equivalent to approx 8 days of average bed day revenue. (2019 Dept of Health ACFA Report). There is no joining fee, no registration fee, and no ongoing fees. The only fee payable is upon a placement occuring. No admission, no fee.

What's the cancellation policy?

An operator can cancel at anytime by providing 5 days written notice. A provider can switch facilities on or off from receiving referrals at any time by logging into the Aged Care Decisions Provider Portal.

When does a provider pay?

The Placement Introduction Fee is payable only upon a resident moving in and commencing permanent care. If the resident moves in for respite services, an interim Respite Introduction Fee is payable, but this amount is deducted from the full Placement Introduction Fee if they become a permanent resident.

Do you disclose your placement fee to families?

Yes, in all instances. We are fully transparent about how and when Aged Care Decisions will charge an aged care provider. This detail is provided to clients and families in their first interaction with Aged Care Decisions, and at multiple points throughout the placement journey.

Can we pay more to receive more referrals?

No. Transparency requires that the prices nominated above are industry wide. We do not recommend one facility over another. Rather, our role is to provide information and to match potential residents to facilities where a match exists on care need, preferences & budget.
