A Brief History

1979 – Incorporation
Incorporation of the Association for Christian Senior Citizens’ Homes (WA) Inc. 
1981 – Construction of Stage 1
A cluster of eight units, suitable for independent living and mainly financed by the “Resident Funded System”. Financial support from the Churches enabled the Association to make three units available for occupation by members of the Reformed Churches upon recommendation from the Deacons. A “naming” competition resulted in the acceptance of the name “Manoah” meaning, REST, RECREATION and CONSOLATION. 
Late 1983 and early 1984 – construction of Stage 2
Six units and a Recreation room. 
1988 – Construction of Stage 3
A single building consisting of eight units, recreation room, central laundry and an office. This building, known as Manoah House, contained independent living units and offered the possibility of serviced unit accommodation. 
Stage 4
A period of “fine tuning” the existence and operation of the Manoah Village. 
1993 – Stage 5
The installation of the rising sewer main project. 
1995 – Manoah House
An application to start the operation of an Aged Care Hostel (Manoah House) received Departmental approval with a licence for eight beds. 
1997 – Stage 5a
The sand fill of our remaining building site, the construction of roads and infrastructure and the Right-of-Way from Station Street. This Right-of-Way is now gazetted as Arnhem Road. 
Stage 5b
With the building site preparation now completed for the construction of 14 new units, expressions of interest, from the membership, were invited, resulting in the erection of 5 units being ready for occupation in April 1998.
