About Hillgrove House

We have outstanding views, to the east, Dr George Mountain, to the north, Mumbulla Mountain and Bemboka peaks to the west, with rolling hills in the foreground, from every aspect, the atmosphere is one of peace and tranquillity.
Our facility accommodates 95 residents, with numerous lounge rooms, sitting/dining areas. There are multiple gardens set up for the residents to enjoy.
Respite accommodation is available for short term care for people with temporary care needs.
We opened in 1979 with 52 beds and due to increased demand we expanded to cater for 64 residents and in 2018 the Residents from Casuarina moved to Hillgrove House to expand the capacity to 95.
We involve the residents, staff and volunteers in the planning of our activities and other services.
We are very proud of our organisation.

From 1 July 2014, a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) applies to all residential aged care places as legislated in the Commonwealth's Living Longer Living Better program. The maximum RAD for all room types at Hillgrove House is $450,000.
Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable deposit, a daily payment (DAP), or a combination of both. A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum. A daily payment accrues daily and is paid monthly. A DAP is calculated on the basis of the interest rate determined by the Commonwealth and reviewed quarterly. The current interest rate is 4.98% pa.
A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments:
Single Room Shared Ensuite
DAP - $47.75
Max RAD - $350,000
Single Room Ensuite
DAP - $61.40
Max RAD - $450,000
Daily Care Fees
In addition to the accommodation payment, each resident pays Daily Care Fees that are regulated by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services.
The basic daily care fee is 85% of the single rate of basic age pension, indexed twice yearly in March and September. If applicable, a means tested daily care fee is also payable. Means tests are carried out by Centrelink.
Hillgrove House staff cannot provide financial advice. Prospective residents and their families are strongly advised to seek independent financial advice.
