Yulunda, Service Manager of James Brown Care Centre in Osborne Park, is the only finalist from Western Australia. She was nominated for the Individual Distinction award which recognises aged care staff for their exceptional contribution to improving the lives of ageing Australians.
Gaye Clayton and Steve Kitchen were total strangers until three years ago when they moved into Amana Living Meadow Springs Village within one week of each other. Now they’re firm friends, a bond that was cemented by an unfortunate accident about a year ago.
Steve explains, “Gaye fell over and broke her wrist but her family wasn't available to take her to the hospital so I took her to Peel Health Campus and also specialist appointments in Rockingham.”
Nobody wants to be lonely. It can have devastating physical and mental effects, particularly among older people who are increasingly at risk of social isolation and loneliness. Technology has a role to play in helping people to stay connected and, while it will never replace direct human contact, it can be a vital tool to combat isolation.

A unique project to introduce harp therapy into Perth residential aged care centres has been launched by Amana Living.
Based on residents’ positive response to the bedside harp performances during the 2018 Amana Living Arts Festival, the organisation has decided to introduce harp therapy on a regular basis.
The eight-week project has started at Moline Care Centre and involves group and one-to-one Reverie Harp sessions delivered by volunteers. The Reverie Harp was chosen because it’s a small instrument which can be played by anyone regardless of their musical background.
