Club Alexander Heights is a place where older people can come to socialise and take part in activities.
We encourage everyone to join in with what’s happening on the day, but if they prefer to simply take it easy, they are welcome to do so. We understand that people living in their own homes can easily become socially isolated, so we provide social interaction in the centre and in the community.
Club Alexander Heights clients and families have easy access to our dementia-specific services, including overnight respite care and the McCusker Nurse North Service. You can read more about these services in the Dementia Care section of this website.
Club Alexander Heights is open from Monday to Friday, with occasional evening and weekend activities depending on our clients’ needs. We can arrange transport to and from the club, and we provide lunch (at a cost) and morning / afternoon tea.
If you are caring for an older person at home, there will probably be times when you need to recharge your batteries, take a holiday or pursue your own interests for a while. Respite care gives you the opportunity to take a break, knowing that the person you care for is in good hands. Respite can mean anything from a regular visit at home to a stay of a few weeks in a care centre.
People living with dementia can access all types of respite services offered by Amana Living. In particular, you may want to consider one of our three specialist clubs for ongoing, regular daytime respite.
We find that club visits are equally beneficial to carers and those in their care. Our clients have a wonderful time, socialising with others, gardening, cooking, relaxing or going on outings.

The cost will depend on the type of respite care you choose and your eligibility for Government support. Check the pricing tabs for each centre or service to find out more.
Depending on your needs and preferences, you may be eligible for Government-subsidised home care or day respite services. We can help you find out what services are available to you and ensure you receive the best care package.
To find out if you are eligible for residential care centre respite, you must have been assessed by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) during the last 12 months. To arrange an assessment, contact your GP.
You will be entitled to a maximum of 63 respite days per year.
Our approach is to focus on the individual, understanding that the people we serve have enjoyed long and rich lives, and that they each have their own unique needs, abilities and preferences. We can accommodate a wide range of mobility, care needs and levels of independence.
Residential respite care is a great way to ease the transition into permanent care. Our care centres offer some of the most spacious rooms in the industry, most with private ensuites, and many with private lounge rooms and kitchenettes.
Amana Living has a broad range of care centres, offering short-term stays (between one and nine weeks), and three specialised day respite clubs for people living with dementia, including early onset dementia. Home care services are provided throughout Perth metro and in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
