Welcome to Bupa Merrimac

Our home is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens in the heart of the Gold Coast. You’ll be close to the local community with neighbouring schools and shopping centres.

Indoors, we have a delightful range of communal spaces, activity rooms and dining areas complete with tasteful, warm decorations and large windows to bring in lots of natural light. There is a library with plentiful selection of books that is bound to have something to cater for your tastes. And we also have weekly visits from a local hairdresser, which is ideal for those who fancy a pampering session.

Our outdoor space is not only beautiful, but also somewhere for you to unwind and relax. Our gardens feature an entertainment area where you and your loved ones can enjoy BBQs. Alfresco dining is very popular amongst our residents, especially in the warmer months.

Choosing a payment option that suits you

Moving into a care home is a big decision and it’s important to make sure you choose the payment option that suits you best. Your costs may vary according to your financial situation and we advise you to seek independent financial advice before entering an aged care home to help you choose the right payment option for you.

To help ensure that care is affordable for everyone, the Australian Government calculates and regulates maximum daily fees and enforces limits as to how much you can be asked to pay for accommodation.

What’s covered in my fees?

Your fees for aged care cover both the care you receive and your accommodation, and sometimes, extra services.

Care

Your care fees cover daily living costs such as nursing care, housekeeping and meals. They are paid, in part, by all residents and are determined by the Department of Social Services.

Accommodation

For residents entering care after July 1 2014, you can choose from three simple ways to pay for your accommodation.


living longer living better

These options allow for more flexibility on how you pay for accommodation and are designed to be fairer for everyone.

You can visit the web page of your chosen care home on the Bupa Aged Care website and click on the “Accommodation” tab.

Extra Services

Some aged care homes offer a higher standard of accommodation, food and service in return for a daily fee. Whether you are in an Extra Service home or not, the quality of your care remains the same.
