Governor shows support

Her Excellency the Hon Kerry Sanderson AO, Governor of Western Australia, expressed her support for Amana Living in our mission to improve care and services for WA’s older people, in a visit to the Cottesloe site in April.

Mrs Sanderson became Patron of Amana Living following the retirement from the position of former Governor Malcolm McCusker.

“We were very pleased when Mrs Sanderson accepted our invitation to take up the baton of Patron after she was appointed as the new Governor of WA,” said Ray Glickman.

“Her visit to our Cottesloe site was a great opportunity to showcase a facility renewal in respond to need, as well as the evolution of aged care towards a focus on the customer and an increasing demand for home care services.”

Mr Glickman, Chairman Steve Scudamore and members of the Leadership Team answered the Governor’s questions about aged care in WA and how Amana Living is responding to changing needs, demands and challenges.

The Governor toured the new transition care facility and had the opportunity to meet home care and customer service staff over afternoon tea.

Over the past two years, Amana Living Cottesloe
has been transformed from a retirement village and residential care centre into a temporary transition care site, the hub for coordinating 18,000 home care visits a month, and the new Customer Service Centre.
