Locals seeking aged care in Epping have the opportunity to join the residence of the exquisite and thoughtfully designed home Heritage Epping, where our residents’ wellbeing is paramount, and  focused on delivering attentive, tailored care backed by highly skilled and caring staff.

Heritage Epping recently opened its dedicated Memory Support Unit (sometimes known as a dementia unit), which is a purpose built area with its own gardens and courtyards to provide a safe and secure environment for people living with high dementia care needs.  The community is grateful for the home’s ability to now provide a complete ageing in place solution for people managing a decline in cognition function.

Grand, spacious communal areas, large floor-to-ceiling windows and verandas ensure the home is flooded with natural light, creating a warm and bright ambience. It is beautifully furnished and decorated for maximum comfort, creating a peaceful and homely atmosphere for residents and their families to enjoy.

The home’s architecture has also been designed with residents’ wellbeing at its core. Heritage Epping faces the popular Edgards Creek Trail and the home’s layout promotes the stunning wetlands views to enhance the physiological wellbeing of our residents and their guests with many experiencing the tranquility of the countryside. The trail footpath is only metres from our boundary of the home so residents can feel a part of the community by ‘people watching’ while sitting in the garden.

Residents can spend time with their friends at the on-site café or numerous lounges that are located on each floor. There are also cosy ‘snug’ areas in the home to enable residents to enjoy some quiet time for themselves.

Just minutes from Epping’s town centre, our state-of-the-art residential, nursing and dementia care home, is based in the business precinct and can accommodate 148 residents.

New Residence Manager Julio Castillo brings strong leadership and clinical governance to the home ensuring we provide exemplary care to our residents.

Come and see the home and the meet the team. You’ll be presently surprised. Call Rita to book a visit on 0460 432 049.

New Memory Support Unit for people living with high dementia needs

Heritage Care has opened a state-of-the-art Memory Support Unit (MSU) within the Heritage Epping home that supports people with dementia to feel a sense of belonging, safety, independence and connection to others.

At Heritage Epping’s MSU, a highly flexible, home-like care model empowers residents to live according to their preferences in a stimulating and meaningful environment. Instead of adhering to a set group timetable, the care team will tailor their approach to accommodate each resident’s daily preferred routine and emotional state.
