Aged Care in Epping

Welcome to Epping Gardens

Epping Gardens offers state-of-the-art aged care in Melbourne. Providing a range of options and benefit-geared solutions for all stages of ageing, offering a coordinated design, one that is tailored to individual needs and connects with the local community. Through custom-designed homes, professional aged care providers and engaging programs, Epping Gardens will deliver a caring and supportive environment that promotes supported independence where appropriate. Aiming to keep guests physically and mentally active, eating well, staying connected and having access to a high standard of clinical care is imperative and at the forefront of our objective.

Epping Gardens is the most recent addition to Heritage Care’s portfolio of homestyle aged care. Epping Gardens is strategically located to provide care and services in one of the state’s most dominant growth corridors, with a projected population expected to increase by 52% in the next decade.

The Northern Hospital, being the predominant hospital in Melbourne’s North, is less than 1 km away. The facility is easily accessible via major road networks. It is directly opposite the Epping Medical Centre, a custom-built medical centre housing a vast range of medical, health and wellness services and specialists. The Epping Medical Centre also has plans to develop a Day Procedure Centre that will help reinforce the quality of aged care in Victoria but specifically in Epping.
