“The Terraces” was completed in 2019 and is located in the highly sought-after suburb of Paddington in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. A brand-new, purpose built facility, it’s less than 500 metres to St. Vincent’s Hospital, less than 1 kilometre to Rushcutter’s Bay and within 5 minutes’ walk in all directions are shops, cafés and galleries.
Designed to accommodate “Ageing in place” the facility provides respite, residential, dementia and palliative care. There are multiple lounge, dining and activity rooms, a hydrotherapy spa bathroom and the majority of rooms have their own ensuite.
The Terraces contains:
- 79 elegant retirement units across four buildings, including the heritage-listed Scottish Hospital – which dates back to the 1840s and was a functioning hospital from 1902-the late 1990s – and which has been converted into 9 stunning house-size retirement apartments
- a 100-bed residential aged care facility, including a 23-bed dementia unit with a private garden
- a theatrette, swimming pool, gym and landscaped parks and gardens; and
- an on-site café, as well as the capacity to run Home Care and Day Centre activities.
In the dementia unit, residents reside in a secure environment to prevent wandering, while still allowing them to move about at their pleasure in safety. They also have a secure garden allowing them to enjoy the outdoors freely too.
Support & assistance is available for showering, dressing, medication administration & supervision, nursing and personal care needs, all provided by our highly qualified, dedicated, and experienced care staff and registered nurses who are available 24 hours a day. We also provide leisure and recreational programs that are designed to support, challenge, and enhance the social, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being of individuals. All laundry services and meals (made by an onsite chef, including specific dietary requirements) are also looked after.
