Set in the tranquil surrounds of leafy Bray Park in Brisbane’s north-west, Anam Cara, meaning ‘Soul Place’, is an innovative and award winning aged care community. Built in 2002, Anam Cara is home to 105 residents who live across six custom designed lodges interconnected with outdoor walkways, filling the lodges with ample natural light.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, cabling for TV and phone, ensuite bathrooms, built in wardrobes and large windows with views of the leafy surrounds. Full laundry services are also available, along with the ability to cater for specialised diets.
Anam Cara can offer you extra services such as: alternative menu choices and wine with meals, daily newspaper deliveries, Foxtel, aromatherapy and reflexology. (Extra services only refer to services and not the level of care provided. All residents are afforded the same level of high quality care.)
As a resident living at Anam Cara you will have access to Wesley Mission Queensland’s own specialised residential aged care allied health professionals. This means that residents have convenient and timely access to services such as podiatry, physiotherapy, dietetics, occupational therapy and speech pathology. This provides a streamlined approach for care, with allied health staff easily and confidentially able to communicate with nursing staff to tailor support to your individual needs.
Care with heart
Living with Wesley Mission Queensland means living with friends in a loving community where the care is all about you. Wesley Mission Queensland was the first provider of aged care in Brisbane with the Sisters of Nursing in 1907 and established Queensland’s first aged care community in 1936. We are privileged to share in the lives of our elders and celebrate their wisdom and wealth of knowledge. When you enter one of our residences we create an individual personal profile for you. This ensures all staff can respond to your individual needs effectively and accurately, including medical, cultural, religious and dietary.
All meals are carefully planned and prepared by qualified chefs and dieticians at Wesley Mission Queensland’s commercial kitchen based in Moorooka. Upon joining the Anam Cara community, your dietary needs will be assessed by a Registered Nurse, ensuring that you receive meals that are delicious, healthy and suited to your individual requirements.
Anam Cara’s dedicated Leisure and Lifestyle Coordinator is on-hand to create spontaneous, meaningful and exciting activities for you to take part in every day, regardless of your physical abilities. Anam Cara is conveniently located close to many community amenities in Bray Park with a bus service, hotel and supermarket nearby.
