WA Aged Care Learning & Development Network

WA Aged Care Learning & Development Network

The WA Aged Care Learning & Development Network provides a forum for educational innovation and improvement in the WA aged care sector. The network was co-founded in late 2016 and consisted of five aged care providers, including Amana Living.

Over the last three years, membership has grown to include over 30 members who represent 16 aged care service providers in WA. Coordinated by a team of four, the network meets quarterly and features a range of guest speakers.

New State Government programs for WA Aged Care & Disability Service Providers

Amana Living Training Institute to offer increased training opportunities in aged care and disability services

From 1 July 2019 WA aged care and disability service providers can access new funding to help upskill and train their workforce and identify recruits thanks to two new initiatives from the Western Australian Government.

New Aged Care Standards

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).

The Royal Commission Aged Care Quality and Safety

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.

Amana Living helps WA seniors boost digital literacy

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.
