Hector Wing

McLean Care® have been working hard on the best way to adapt to the significant changes in our resident populations. Hector Wing, which first opened in 2007, has undertaken an extensive refurbishment, where dignity, independence, and social connection are the hallmarks of this 17-bed state-of-the-art, purpose-driven facility for our seniors who are living with dementia.

Specialist aged care architectural services were contracted to craft an attractive, safe and supportive environment that responds to the specific needs of our Hector residents, supported by your 24 hour a day specialised dementia care team.


Care in Hector Wing

Hector Wing is a suitable care environment for you if you are able to:
• Mobilise independently or with the assistance of 1 staff member
• Transfer on and off your bed independently or with the assistance of 1 staff member
• Toilet independently or with the assistance of 1 staff member
• Manage food and fluids independently (or with supervision)

Room and Care Cost

Residents can choose to pay for their accommodation by a refundable deposit, a daily payment, or a combination of both. A refundable deposit is paid as a lump sum amount. A daily payment accrues daily and is paid monthly. A daily payment drawn from a refundable deposit will accrue daily and be drawn monthly from the deposit. A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily payments.

To establish the fees you may be asked to pay, your income and assets will be taken into account. You may be asked to pay one or more of the following fees:

A Basic Daily Fee
This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. For some people this is the only fee they are required to pay.

A Means Tested Care Fee
This is an additional contribution towards the cost of care that some people may be required to pay. The Department of Human Services will work out if you are required to pay this fee based on an assessment of your income and assets, and will advise you of the amount.

An Accommodation Payment
This is for your accommodation in the home. Some people will have their accommodation costs met in full or part by the Australian Government, while others will need to pay the accommodation price agreed with the aged care home.

The maximum accommodation payment at McLean Care Ltd is $340,000.
The interest rate used is the maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR) current at date of entry. The interest rate is 5.70% per annum.

The maximum accommodation payment can be paid as:
• A Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) of $340,000.
• A Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) of $53.10.
• A combination of a RAD and a DAP, for example:
A 30% RAD (deposit) of $102,000 plus a 70% DAP of $37.17
• A RAD with a draw down, for example:
A RAD of $102,000 with a monthly draw down of a $37.17 DAP with draw down amounts charged at a percentage of 5.70% per annum.

The aged care checklist

Finding the right care and services is a step-by-step process. Choosing the right care can seem complicated and difficult to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together some practical advice to guide you through the aged care process so that you can start receiving the help you need sooner.

When should I plan for care?

No-one likes to think of themselves as getting ‘old’, but honestly, the sooner you start thinking about your time beyond retirement, the more choices you’ll realise you have, and the more prepared you’ll feel. It’s all about planning ahead, and making decisions about how you want to live your life so you can stay in control of your future. So, there's no time like the present
