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.
If you’ve always wanted a career in the care industry but the cost of training has been a barrier, now is the time to act.
The WA State Government has introduced the ‘Lower Fees, Local Skills’ initiative which will see aged, home and community, allied health and disability care course fees slashed. It’s also a great time to boost existing skills thanks to the fee reductions.
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.
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.
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.
