Black Swan Prize for Portraiture

Amana Living is proud to be involved in the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture as a supporting partner in 2017. This is the second year we’ve sponsored this amazing competition which provides a showcase for Australia’s premier artists. 

We love celebrating the creative process, and providing artistic experiences for our residents and clients as part of the Amana Living Enrichment Program. The program places a high value on activities that promote lifelong learning, choice and independence, catering for a broad range of abilities, gifts and preferences.

Amana Living Treendale Welcomes New Manager

Amanda Arnoldi has joined the Amana Living team to manage its Australind retirement village, Amana Living Treendale.

Bunbury born and bred, Amanda is a licenced sales representative with 26 years’ experience in real estate, including four years working in retirement villages. Over that time, Amanda has amassed a number of accolades including top village manager at Stockland and top property manager for the Roy Weston.

Amana Living’s Edward Collick Home has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

The Kalgoorlie care centre has been named a semi-finalist in the Prime Super Employer Excellence in Aged Care Award category, part of The WA Regional Achievement and Community Awards.

The Awards aim to encourage, acknowledge and reward the valuable contributions that individuals, groups and businesses are making throughout rural and regional Western Australia.

Edward Collick Home’s entry will now be reviewed by a judging panel on 30th August in order to determine the finalists. Winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the Hyatt Regency in Perth on 20th October.

Short-Term Restorative Care for Older People

Older West Australians who need intensive support to help them remain living in their own home can now access a Short-Term Restorative Care program.

Amana Living is one of three Perth aged care providers approved to deliver the Government’s Short-Term Restorative Care program, providing a range of health-related services to stabilise a decline in mental and physical abilities, such as a deterioration in mobility. This decline may inhibit an older person’s ability to complete every day activities.

Give The Gift Of Music To People Living With Dementia

Support the Tune into Life expansion

In 2016 we piloted an innovative music program called Tune into Life to help people with dementia reconnect with deep memories and their loved ones. 

The clients who took part in the pilot were happier and enjoyed better relationships with our staff, as well as their loved ones, through listening to music together.    

Now, we want to expand the program to all our care centres in Perth and have created the Tune into Life iPod Drive to support the program’s expansion. 

We need your help.
