‘Ananda’ means ‘great bliss’, which captures the foundation and spirit with which we deliver holistic care, striving at all times to enhance the well-being of our residents through meaningful experiences and best-practice service.
Set in Findon, Ananda Aged Care upholds a strong tradition of providing aged care services based on authentic family values and a history of pride in treating every resident and staff member as part of our extended Ananda family.
Ananda holds 4 dots compliance as assessed by the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. This is the highest rating possible.
Ananda has a commitment to staff education and training. Ananda developed its own Ananda Academy and staff have weekly opportunities to attend face-to-face training, workshops, Buzz Meetings and Toolbox Talks in addition to a comprehensive online Learning Management System.
Our partnership with Dementia Training Australia (DTA) provided best practice dementia training for staff, environmental audits, and two unique Consultancies which reduced incidents and use of medication, as well as allowed us to open the doors to our Memory Support Units.
Ananda has featured in four publications in the Australian Journal of Dementia Care.
Our commitment to improving the dining experience and quality of food is reflected in the array of choice at the bain Marie served meals.
We have appointed 3 experienced clinicians as Infection Prevention and Control Leads after they completed post graduate IPC qualifications. Our IPC plans at both homes were assessed ay the Commission at unannounced visits in 2020.
Our Concierge, Linda, will guide you through the process of coming to aged care and making Ananda your home. Our experienced and friendly Wellness and Engagement staff will meet and greet you when you are ready to move in, and they wil help welcome you and introduce you to new friends and the activities you choose.
