Home / Home Care

Home care services can help you stay in your own home for longer, with more freedom to enjoy life, by providing the support you need.

Amana Living are here to provide Home Care services whatever your needs. If you are still quite independent and active, you might need only a bit of help with daily chores. Or you might need more help to maintain your independence and keep active in your local community. Later on in life, you may want help with personal care or health needs, such as physiotherapy, podiatry and nursing.

Amana Living offer a wide range of Home Care services:

What is home care?

Home care is the name for a range of care and services that help you, or the person you care for, to continue living at home for as long as possible. Services range from weekly help around the house to a daily visit to provide nursing or personal care.

How much does it cost?

If you access Government-subsidised services, the cost is the same, whatever services you choose. This will be worked out according to your individual circumstances. Any unspent funds accumulate for you to use later on.

How do I know what I’m eligible for?

Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or Packaged Care. We can help you find out what you are eligible for. We can also arrange top-up services if you want more than the services available to you under subsidised care. 

Why would I go to Amana Living for my home care services?

As your needs change, the services you receive at home from Amana Living can also change. We will work with you to determine the best combination of services for you and the most cost-effective way to access those services. We will make sure they are delivered at the right time by skilled and friendly staff.

Where does Amana Living home care operate?

We operate across the Perth metro area and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

I just wanted to say thank you for spending the time with me yesterday to go through things about Katie, it is very  much appreciated, and also nice to know that I am sort of on the right track...

I also appreciated you asking me how I was, how I was coping and how did I feel... that was really nice and it is something that people never ask me and I sometimes feel that I am just expected to do what I do ‐ so thank you!

I have some good ideas from our meeting so will start to put them in place and see how we go.

Again, thank you for everything, I really appreciate your friendship and the support you give me...
