Nestled against a large peaceful lake, Palm Lake Care Bethania is one of our most popular communities. Most days you’ll find our residents watching the cormorants, turtles and egrets gracing the reedy shorelines from the large lounge or lakeside verandah.
Bethania features several lounge and dining areas, a grand lounge with expansive views across the lake and a family friendly café for get-togethers.
Palm Lake Care Bethania is also situated right next door to our sister property, Palm Lake Resort, allowing an easy transition from resort living to care without stress if the need arises. There is always plenty of movement between these two vibrant communities.

We also host regular art shows, complete with invitations, speeches and a chance to purchase an original masterpiece. Don’t worry, we regularly hear residents tell us they have never done anything like this before, but before long, become immersed in our free classes.

A lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or Contribution (RAC).
The RAD or RAC is a lump sum payment for accommodation in an aged care home.
This amount is fully refundable when you leave, less any amounts you have agreed to be deducted.
Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or Contribution (DAC) (Rental style/non-refundable).
Instead of a lump sum payment, you can choose to pay a daily fee based on the room price.
The DAP is calculated using a government-set interest rate- known as the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (e.g., 8.15%).
Combination part lump sum (RAD) and part ongoing payments (DAP).
You can choose to pay part of the accommodation cost as a RAD and the rest as a DAP.
This can reduce your daily payments while still providing a refundable amount for the future.

Kim could not be happier. Said every staff member, reception and clinical staff were so friendly, helpful and polite.
- Kim Guymer
Without caring people out there like yourself I would probably still be ringing and getting the run around.
I seek to congratulate you and your staff on the level of care and nurturing mum received during her 3 years in residence.
