Heritage Northcote is a stunning, completely renovated state of the art 75 bed residential home perfectly placed in a close-knit pocket of the inner north a short 6 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD. Our residents benefit from a home with stunning natural light, enchanting outdoor spaces and a vibrant lifestyle program. Heritage Northcote offers a number of tailored care options to suit your needs including short term respite care, permanent care, dementia care and palliative care. We provide a safe, welcoming community and have introduced world-class sleep-sense technology to further increase our resident’s safety.

We understand that each person’s lifestyle needs are unique, and that’s why each resident has access to our Waiter Table Service where you have a choice of meal at every mealtime. Be pampered exactly how you choose at our onsite Hair and Beauty Services and stay physically and mentally fit with our range of activities in the dedicated wellbeing room or participation in our daily lifestyle program. Our community empowers residents to retain independence with facilities like the library and landscaped gardens for quiet reflection, or the onsite private dining room area to celebrate those special family occasions.

Other key home features include our tea and coffee making facilities, a residents-only barbeque area, raised garden beds, an alfresco area and balconies. Moments from your front door is access to transport, art, music, shops, leafy parklands, the historic Westgarth Cinema, and the lively cafe and restaurants scene Northcote is famous for.
