Sensory experience to reconnect families

A specialist dementia care centre in Kinross recently hosted a sensory extravaganza in a bid to help residents reconnect with loved ones.

Amana Living’s Kinross Care Centre organised a SENSEational celebration event for residents and their family and friends to enjoy together.

Residents and their guests were invited to take part in meditation, put their personal touch on an interactive art installation, enjoy a cuddle with two therapy Greyhounds, and ‘squish, pop and crunch’ their way through a sensory walk.

Thanks To Our Mandurah Volunteers for Service

A group of Mandurah volunteers who have contributed more than 65 years of service between them were honoured on Wednesday, 6th December.

The volunteers from Wearne House in Mandurah were celebrated at an afternoon tea and thanked for their outstanding dedication to the residents of Wearne House.

Every volunteer has a personal connection to Wearne House, whether that’s through family members or having worked there. Volunteers include former matron of 13 years, Mildred Underwood, and current residents of Amana Living’s hostel and retirement living accommodation.
