Epping Gardens: Care and Quality to be delivered in Beautifully Designed Aged Care Development North of Melbourne

In November 2016, Heritage Care will be stamping its signature style for beautifully designed Aged Care facilities with a $32 million development project in Melbourne’s booming northern suburb of Epping.

eg-image4Construction is scheduled to commence in November 2016 with expected completion by early 2018. This development is designed by Point Health Architects and built by APM Group (Aust) Pty Ltd. McMullin Property is the developer, working closely with Heritage Care from inception to completion.

Location
Epping Gardens has the fortunate position of starting with a blank canvas. Heritage Care purchased the land within Northpoint Enterprise Park, where they have had the opportunity to select a prime location to fulfil their resident’s needs.

The facility is easily accessible via major road networks, and is directly opposite the Epping Medical Centre, which is a custom built medical centre housing a vast range of medical, health and wellness services and specialists. The Epping Medical Centre also has future plans to develop a Day Procedure Centre. The Northern Hospital, being the major hospital in Melbourne’s North is less than 5 km away and there is an International Hotel planned for development in an adjoining allotment.

Homes
Once complete, Epping Gardens will offer state-of-the-art residential aged care services for seniors. The new development will provide 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.

“Heritage Care is pleased to serve Australia’s aged care residents. We look forward to opening Epping Gardens to meet increasing demand for residential aged care. It is well known that Australians are living longer. In 2015, there were approximately 500,000 Australians aged over 85. By 2055, it is estimated that 1,900,000 Australians will be over the age of 85. This ageing population is a key driver of the expected shortfall of 70,000 aged care beds by 2022.” Says George Gabriel, Executive Chairman, Heritage Care.

“We look forward to working with the local community around Epping Gardens to improve our residents’ experience. To this end, we will work closely with the local medical precinct, including the medical professionals of nearby Northern Hospital and the extensive allied health networks of the Epping Medical Centre.” Says Mr Gabriel

Through a cleverly, custom designed facility, supportive staff and an engaging program, Epping Gardens will deliver a caring and supportive environment that promotes supported independence where appropriate, aiming to keep residents physically and mentally active, eating well, staying socially connected and having access to a high standard of clinical care.

Aged Care Has Arrived At Northpoint

breakingground-ceremony-300-400On the 9 November 2016, the McMullin Property team, in partnership with Heritage Care hosted a Ground Breaking Ceremony for an exciting new development that is starting within Northpoint Enterprise Park: Epping Gardens Aged Care.

Located in Willandra Drive Epping, Epping Gardens is a 148 bed aged care development to be owned and operated by Heritage Care.

This development further enhances Northpoint Enterprise Park’s Health and Community Precinct, which already incorporates the Epping Medical Centre and Eclipse Child Care Centre, who are both close neighbours to the aged care project. The bustling Northern Hospital is also just a stone’s throw away from this exciting new Development.

The Ground Breaking Ceremony was well attended by local industry stakeholders and the wider health care community, all eager to see what Heritage Care has in store for the Development and the needs of the local elderly community. Heritage Care Executive Chairman George Gabriel was on hand to take part in the Ceremony, and had this to say of the momentous occasion;

“The location of Epping Gardens is not an accident. Firstly, we have deliberately selected Epping due to its high population growth outlook. Secondly, we have deliberately selected Willandra Drive Epping because of its strategic location within a medical care precinct – close to both Northern Hospital and Tristar Medical Group, plus the added benefit of a nearby child care centre.
The synergies and potential benefits are substantial as Epping Gardens works with local community service providers.”

George went on to talk about the need for aged care services for our increasingly ageing population;

“The challenge is that longer life expectancy is bringing increased demand for health care services in old age. Over the next 40 years, it is estimated that there will be approx 2 million Australians over 85 years old, compared to less than 500 thousand today.

This ageing population is driving demand for residential aged care and is leading to an expected shortfall of 70,000 residential aged care places by 2022.”

After further comments by McMullin Property Executive Director Trevor Gorman, Councillor Mary Lalios had the honour of ‘turning the first sod’, and in doing so marking the Developments official commencement.

How the project impacts on the local community

The project is expected to be complete by mid-2018. In addition to providing care to 148 elderly citizens from the Shire of Whittlesea and surrounds, the project will provide a huge boost to local employment with in excess of 350 workers to be employed on & off site during Construction. Once construction is complete and Epping Gardens opens it doors, there will be a further 200 full time jobs created to run the home.
