Welcome to Anam Cara Aged Care Community

Known for our highly experienced and professional team, at Anam Cara we also have Clear Mountain Cottage, which provides holistic support to residents who have a diagnosis of dementia and who are still able to be involved in daily life activities.

When it comes to your care, we take the time to understand your individual needs. The clinical team at Anam Cara provides quality care, alongside our medical and allied health professionals, so all your health concerns are met to a consistently high standard.
