Words from our Community

The caring staff are wonderful. They seem to understand our needs and are always close by when needed. Almost family.

H. Puhl

We could not find a better place, we have everything we need. No complaints, friendly staff, caring nurses, good food, bus trips, activities in the Ranyard Centre, interesting things to do, a physio. It’s beautiful to get old.

M. Bentley

To me, SwanCare means care, safety, good friends, and above all: peace of mind of which there is no end.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Australian Government’s My Aged Care service is the starting point to access residential care in Australia. My Aged Care staff are trained to help and guide those looking for care.

To register, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 with your Medicare card details ready. You can also visit

My Aged Care will then organise for a health professional to visit your loved one to assess their level of care needs.

SwanCare offers a range of single and double rooms (subject to availability), dietician approved meals which are cooked onsite, laundry services, and a wide range of care provided by qualified staff. They will also provide a monthly social engagement calendar catering to all abilities to benefit residents social, spiritual, physical, and emotional wellbeing.

As a not-for-profit organisation, SwanCare ensures that all profits go directly back into the care of its residents, and that care is accessible to those who need it.

The cost that an individual might be expected to contribute towards their residential aged care depends on which type of room they are interested in, as well as their assets and income, as assessed by the Commonwealth Government.

SwanCare’s fees are further explained in the SwanCare Residential Care Fees and Charges page which can be viewed here.

The Australian Government contributes towards the cost of an individual’s residential aged care, depending on assets and income testing. Services Australia will advise what level of support is available. 

SwanCare’s dedicated Admissions Manager is also available to help explain the payment process with you.

All incoming residents need to be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) prior to admission into permanent or respite residential care, as per government regulations.

To be eligible for approval as a residential care recipient, a person must have significant care needs that can be appropriately met through the provision of a particular type of care. The person is eligible if:
  • The person is assessed as having significant physical, medical, social, or psychological needs that require the provision of care; and
  • Those needs cannot be met more appropriately through general care services. In determining whether these criteria are met, the ACAT will consider the person’s medical, physical, psychological, and social circumstances.
For further information regarding ACAT approvals, contact the My Aged Care Information Line on 1800 200 422.

Asset and income assessment determines the fees and costs you will need to pay when moving into residential aged care. These costs depend on your financial situation and the Australian Government uses income assessments or means (income and assets) assessments to work this out. 

When moving into aged care, you may have to pay a means tested care fee and accommodation costs. A means assessment determines if you need to pay the means tested care fee and if the Australian Government will contribute to your accommodation costs. Everyone who moves into an aged care home negotiates a room price before moving in. The means assessment determines if you will have to pay the agreed room price.

To be assessed you will need to complete a Residential Aged Care Calculation form and/or a Residential Aged Care Property form and submit to Centrelink or The Department of Veterans Affairs (whichever is applicable), who will then provide a Statement of Assets and Income for residential aged care providers.
