Emerald Hill

Emerald Hill Residence

The resident-centred philosophy of care embodied in this beautiful new Melbourne nursing home at Napier Street, South Melbourne is as attractive as the building itself.

Our ‘household’ model of care gives the 146 residents of this South Melbourne nursing home choice and control, ensuring that their later years will have their deserved measure of dignity, security, confidence and enjoyment.

The superbly designed, thoughtfully detailed state-of-the-art nursing home is blessed with marvellous views of Melbourne and tranquil garden surroundings imaginatively spread over four levels up to the roof terrace.

There are generous bedrooms each with built-in desks and wardrobes and a private ensuite bathroom.

The several ‘households’ each have a separate dining room, lounges, sitting areas, recreation spaces and kitchens, which form the heart of each household. There are many spaces where residents are able to join in the art and craft or iPad classes, the camera club, the current affairs discussion group or the reading group or any of the many other activities taking place. Or perhaps they can just make themselves a cup of tea and sit on a stool for a chat with whoever is working in the kitchen.

Household members are motivated and encouraged to retain as many of their previous lifestyle activities as possible, and to continue to live according to their own  timetable, so that a move to Napier Street South Melbourne can simply be regarded as a change of address to a welcoming home-like environment.

In addition to South Melbourne’s shops, parks, churches, markets and transport within a couple of blocks, there are many amenities on site or in the adjacent heritage building in Napier Street. These include the Lionshare café – surely the hippest nursing home cafe in Melbourne! Relax – it’s open to the public.

There’s also a wellness centre, library, hairdresser, theatre and art room, together with the administration offices. Also available is a family room perfectly suited to larger gatherings such as for birthdays or anniversaries.

The opportunity for the older citizens of South Melbourne and its neighbouring areas to remain living close to the heart of their beloved Melbourne, is an opportunity that many will welcome.  And with it will be the opportunity to live in a community of fellow senior citizens who can share fond memories of the past and enjoyable experiences in the present.

What our residents and family say

Beautiful environment and design, it’s hard to believe you’re in a nursing home. The flexibility of visiting hours is a big help and pet friendly environment means we can bring our dog to visit. 24/7 care means we can rest at ease knowing mum receives medical attention when needed. Staff genuinely care and have a rapport with the residents. They listen and cater to the resident’s needs.- Teresa Belesinni, daughter of resident
I love it at Emerald Hill. The staff are wonderful; they do anything for you. It’s very pleasant place to live and there is always plenty to eat and drink a large platter of fruit on the counter. We have great cooks, if you don’t like the menu on the day they will cook something special that you would like. They do try to please, there cakes are out of this world. There are wide corridors, lovely gardens. They have tried to make it homely, the staff are great, very pleasant nothing is too much trouble. If you are into computers this is the place for you, sometimes if you run into trouble there is a computer expert here to help you out. Unfortunately, I seem to use him quite often.- Sam Wilson, Emerald Hill resident
I really like living here at CaSPA Care Emerald Hill. The building is 5 star and we have some wonderful staff. There are great activities to join in. We are provided with wonderful food, together with the security of the place, who could ask for more.- Peggy Shulze, Emerald Hill resident
Emerald Hill has the feeling of open space in communal areas. There are a variety of activities available and the friendliness of staff and the care they provide is exceptional.- Rob Robotham, Emerald Hill resident
