Amana Living Launches End of Life Companion Project

An initiative to reduce the number of older people in residential aged care dying alone has launched in Perth.

Amana Living has created the ‘No One Dies Alone Companion’ (NODAC) project which will see the organisation recruit 12 volunteers for a pilot. The project will start at Lady McCusker Home in Duncraig where around 10 per cent of residents died alone or with little family support in the last six months.

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.
