An innovative memory care environment with the resident as a clear focus.

The redevelopment of Mercy Health’s residential aged care facility in Montrose has brought the latest innovations in memory care to the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

The new building, constructed in two stages, is Mercy Health’s second residential aged care home to be purpose-built in the form of small community households.

This project involves the replacement of outdated facilities. The new accommodation has 90 aged care beds, arranged in small households of seven to eight beds. The households open onto a three-story glazed atrium which provides visual and auditory cognition throughout the building. The ground floor is arranged as a fully functioning public street with a grocer, café, library, chapel and other activity areas for social activity and integration.

Stage 2 provides an additional 32 beds. This recently completed project fully embodies Mercy Health’s innovative values and care offerings.
