Ageing in Place

At Essendon Terrace our aim is to provide you with a stress free retirement, with no maintenance issues and a safe and secure place to call home.

When you move into an Essendon Terrace apartment you can truly enjoy your retirement and travel to all those far flung places you’ve worked so hard for – without having the worry of maintenance and security of your home in your absence.

As we age, there are other things that we need to be prepared for; often unexpected events mean that we need a little extra assistance, care, or just a helping hand.

Here at Essendon Terrace, our aim is to help you to age in place with grace and dignity, allowing you continue to live independently for as long as possible and giving you and your family peace of mind.

Our elegant and spacious apartments are designed to cater for wheelchair access within the apartments and throughout the building itself. We also offer emergency duress pendants (GPS enabled) so that wherever you are, whether in your own home, anywhere in the building or out and about, as long as you have your pendant with you, help isn’t far away.

For further peace of mind, we have established a number of relationships with highly regarded organisations and healthcare professionals who can provide additional healthcare services or a helping hand should you require it.

Our providers include:



Essendon Terrace is very pleased to announce that continuing on from our long standing relationship with Benetas, we now have priority partner status.

What this means to you is that if the need arises, Benetas will provide our residents priority respite care in their nearby facilities.
