As a not-for-profit organisation established by the Anglican Church in 1962, our aim is to provide the highest quality services in the communities we serve.
We are the only major Aged Care provider in WA with its own Registered Training Organisation (RTO), Amana Living Training Institute.
We carefully select staff for their natural kindness.
Professionally trained. Naturally kind.
In 1962, two dedicated Anglicans, Archdeacon Frederick Guest and Mr Jack Davies, explored the idea of an Anglican aged care organisation.
They found the idea to be sound and submitted a plan to the Most Reverend Robert Moline. The Archbishop agreed, and Anglican Homes was born.
Anglican Homes was a great success, with nursing homes and villages (what we now call care centres and housing) popping up all over Perth.
Then, in 2006, a change was made to ensure that everyone felt welcome. Anglican Homes became Amana Living – an inclusive organisation with Anglican roots.
It was important to keep Anglicanism central to what we do because it isn’t part of our name now, and so we defined our Anglican Essence.
Our name, Amana Living, represents our philosophy:
- Amana means truth, integrity, nurturing.
- Living means helping our residents and clients to optimise their quality of life, with an emphasis on personal enrichment.
A community where every older person is honoured and valued.
Together, we enable older people to maintain their individuality, providing
what is needed to support a fulfilling life.
Compassion - We act with kindness, empathy and respect to foster a community of caring.
Collaboration - We work together, so every person’s contribution advances our common purpose.
Curiosity - We are determined and creative in finding ways that deliver great outcomes.
Inclusion - We celebrate diversity, ensuring everyone is welcomed and treated equitably.
Trust - We take our responsibility seriously and are worthy of the trust placed in us.
