My mother has severe dementia and I placed her in once nursing home earlier in the year. As I have continually been dissatisfied with the care that she has received and discussing it with the providers didn’t result in the requested improvements, I moved her to a different Aged Care facility, on Thursday 9th Nov
I have now been advised by the first one that I am required to pay for care fees, means tested care fees and the RAD payment for the day that she left, being the 9th Nov, regardless that she left the premises by 10.15 in the morning.
The new nursing home are also charging care fees, means tested fees and RAD for the day of admittance, being the 9th Nov as I arrived at their premises at 10.30am that day.
Are both organisations entitled to receive the fees for the same day ??? It is an amount of $121.69 for each place, so not a fortune, but is there some ruling in this situation.
