Care Centres

Home / Care Centres /

Amana Living has 12 residential care centres in Perth and one in Kalgoorlie, offering a range of accommodation styles and services.

Our approach is to focus on the individual, understanding that the people we serve have enjoyed long and rich lives, and that they each have their own unique needs and preferences.

We believe in finding out what makes people tick so that they can continue to live life to the full. This means paying close attention to the emotional, psychological and social aspects of a person’s life, as well as providing top quality clinical and personal care round the clock.

Residents are encouraged to maintain as much independence as possible, to be involved in decision-making regarding the care and services they require, and to maintain connections with others.

Our care centres offer some of the most spacious rooms in the industry, most with private ensuites, and many with private lounge rooms and kitchenettes.

In the videos below, our General Manager of Residential Care, Zenith Zeeman, describes what it means to move into permanent care at Amana Living, and our Customer Service Coordinator, Leonie Demunck, explains how residential care pricing works. We encourage you to contact us on 1300 26 26 26 to request a tour of the care centres that interest you.

Amana Living residential care centres provide permanent accommodation and 24-hour care and services for those who are no longer able to live in their own home.

We can accommodate a wide range of mobility, care needs and levels of independence. Each of our care centres is unique in some way, and it’s important to choose the one that’s right for you.

Two of our centres offer extra services, such as wine with evening meals, daily newspapers and magazines, and additional activities.

In our dementia-specific centres and wings, people living with this challenging disease can receive specialist care in a secure, safe environment.

What all our care centres have in common is excellent care and attention to individual needs.

  • Our carers form the backbone of the facilities, spending quality time with each resident throughout the day as they attend to their personal care needs.
  • Specialised care is provided by physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dementia specialists and clinical nurse consultants.
  • Hospitality staff provide meals, cleaning and laundry services.

Most of our care centres have respite beds for stays of a week or longer, to give family carers a chance to recharge their batteries, and to enable residents to get a taste of residential care prior to permanent admission.

Use our interactive map to browse our locations and go to the menu links for further information on each centre.

To find out if you are eligible to live in a care centre, you must be assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).

Your first step is to contact your GP who will arrange this assessment for you.

The ACAT includes a doctor, nurse, social worker and other health professionals. They will review your care needs and determine the best way to meet them.

If the assessment states that you have been approved for permanent admission into residential care, you are ready for the next step.

Contact us and ask for a residential care centre application pack by calling 1300 26 26 26 or emailing info@amanaliving.com.au

If your assessment approves you instead for home care or respite care (a short-term stay in a care centre), go to the following links to find out more:

There are four parts to care centre fees: the basic daily fee, the means-tested care fee, the accommodation payment and the extra service daily fee.

The Basic Daily Fee:

This covers living costs such as meals, power and laundry. This fee is set by the government and is 85% of the full pension. For some people this is the only fee they are required to pay.

The Means-Tested Care Fee:

This is an additional contribution towards the cost of care that some people may be required to pay. This fee is determined by the Department of Human Services (Centrelink), and is based on the amount of income and assets of the resident. Each person entering a care centre must complete the Centrelink form SA454.1407 “Permanent Residential Aged Care Request for a Combined Asset and Income Assessment” to have their means-tested care fee determined by Centrelink.

The Accommodation Payment:

This is for your accommodation in the care centre. Some people will have their accommodation costs met in full or part by the Australian Government, while others will need to pay the accommodation payment. The Department of Human Services (Centrelink) will advise you which applies to you based on an assessment of your income and assets.

Depending on your financial situation, you may be asked to pay the full Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or part of that deposit, referred to as a Refundable Accommodation Contribution (RAC). An alternative to paying the RAD or RAC is paying the interest that Amana Living would have otherwise earned on the RAD or RAC. This interest payment is referred to as the Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or the Daily Accommodation Contribution (DAC). Another alternative is to pay part of the RAD or RAC and pay the interest on the balance owing as a DAP or DAC.

The pricing tab in each of the specific care centre sections of this website has a convenient RAD/DAP calculator to  indicate the combinations of RAD/DAP or RAC/DAC that can be paid.

If you need help understanding how pricing works or need to find out more, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 1300 26 26 26.

Fees for Extra Services:

Two of Amana Living’s Care Centres have extra service wings.  The centres are Lady McCusker Home in Duncraig and Peter Arney Home in Salter Point.  Please refer to the pricing tab of these Care Centres for further information.

How much does residential care cost?

There are three components to care centre fees. The ‘basic daily fee’ is set by the Government at 85% of full pension. For some people, this is the only fee they will need to pay. There are also a means-tested care fee and an accommodation payment. These vary according to your ability to pay, which is determined by a Centrelink assessment.
