About Us

Our aim is to provide the highest quality services in the communities we serve.

Amana Living is a non-for-profit organisation, established by the Anglican Church in 1962.

We are the only major aged care provider in WA with its own Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Amana Living Training Institute. 

We carefully select staff for their natural kindness. 

Professionally trained. Naturally kind.

About us image
Our History

In 1962, two dedicated Anglicans, Archdeacon Frederick Guest and Mr Jack Davies, explored the idea of an Anglican aged care organisation.

They found the idea to be sound and submitted a plan to the Most Reverend Robert Moline. The Archbishop agreed, and Anglican Homes was born.

Anglican Homes was a great success, with nursing homes and villages (what we now call care centres and housing) popping up all over Perth.

Then, in 2006, a change was made to ensure that everyone felt welcome. Anglican Homes became Amana Living – an inclusive organisation with Anglican roots.

It was important to keep Anglicanism central to what we do because it isn’t part of our name now, and so we defined our Anglican Essence.

Our name, Amana Living, represents our philosophy:

  • Amana means truth, integrity, nurturing.
  • Living means helping our residents and clients to optimise their quality of life, with an emphasis on personal enrichment.
