On 1 July 2016, RFBI welcomed our new Chief Executive Officer, Frank Price. Frank has been a valued member of the RFBI Executive Team since 2007 when he joined RFBI as our first Chief Financial Officer. Since this time Frank has demonstrated the leadership qualities RFBI needs for us to keep growing and responding to the reform agenda planned for our industry.
Frank’s move comes on the back of Alex Shaw’s retirement on 30 June. Alex was an outstanding leader and a key part of RFBI for over 35 years. During his long and dedicated service he lead RFBI admirably, taking the organisation from a single residential care village operator, to the multisite and multiservice operator it is today.
All of us at RFBI wish Alex the best in his retirement and future endeavours.
At RFBI we are incredibly proud to be able to call ourselves a leading Aged Care provider throughout NSW and the ACT. We are passionate about improving the services and facilities that we can provide to current and future residents, to ensure their families have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are experiencing the best care possible.
Improvements and renovations are currently taking place across four of our facilities, and we are excited to be able to share with everyone what exactly is taking place below.
On Friday 20 and Saturday 21 June RFBI villages joined aged care providers around Australia in celebrating the inaugural National Open Day, a day to celebrate quality services to support the ageing population.
The Aged Care Emergency (ACE) service is a multi organisational approach to enable older Australians in residential aged care facilities to be able to receive the right health care in the right place.
What is changing for providers?
From 19 May 2014, we are required to publish our maximum accommodation prices and descriptive information on the My Aged Care website. This information will be for new residents entering care on or after 1 July 2014. The accommodation prices and descriptions must also be available on our website and in materials provided to prospective residents and their families.
