John Dicer, Aged Care Pricing Commissioner, visits Southern Cross Care

John Dicer, Aged Care Pricing Commissioner, visited Southern Cross Care this week to tour a few of our aged care homes.

In his role as Aged Care Pricing Commissioner, John ensures that refundable accommodation deposits (RADs) that are over $550,000 in residential aged care homes are reasonable and provide value to residents. They also approve changes to extra service fees in residential aged care homes.

Based in Canberra, this trip will be the first interstate trip that John has completed in his role since March 2020, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. During his visit to Tasmania, he will be touring a number of residential aged care homes.   

Yesterday, Southern Cross Care CEO Robyn Boyd, Executive Manager Care Services Jo Perry and Executive Manager Estate Development Cathryn Kerr took John for a tour around Sandown Apartments and Fairway Rise Aged Care Home. John will be visiting the Glenara Lakes Aged Care Home today.
