1 July marks the implementation of a new set of Aged Care Quality Standards which define the standard of care and services the community can expect from organisations. These standards will apply to all aged care services and will be assessed by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (ACQSC).
John Langoulant Joins Amana Living Board
Prominent Perth business leader, John Langoulant AO, has been appointed to the Board of Amana Living, one of WA’s largest not-for-profit aged care providers.
The Commonwealth Government established a Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety in October 2018.
The Royal Commission is exploring aged care quality standards and how the aged care system can evolve to meet the growing and changing needs of Australia’s older population.
Currently, the Royal Commission is conducting hearings and community forums across Australia before it will publish an interim report in October 2019, followed by a final report in April 2020.
Join us at Amana Living village open day, 2nd March 2019
If you want to make a sea change in 2019, Amana Living’s Treendale Village offers a resort-style lifestyle in an open and friendly community.
Come along to an open day on 2nd March to learn more about the village, tour the available villas and facilities, and chat to current residents about what makes Amana Living Treendale so special. There will also be food and refreshments, a chance to win raffle prizes, plus a special open day offer with new homes reduced from $430,000 to $395,000*.
Reflecting on the value of pastoral care in supporting people’s ageing journey is essential as the role of religion in Australian society continues to be debated.
A Commonwealth program designed to help all Australians to thrive in the digital world, ‘Be Connected’, is being rolled out to older people primarily in Amana Living’s retirement villages.
Amana Living applied for a grant to run the program which aims to increase the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians in using digital technology. Our residents can now attend weekly drop-in sessions where they receive one-on-one tuition on how to use their digital devices, as well as support to use the ‘Be Connected’ learning portal.
