Situated in a vibrant residential area close to Melbourne’s CBD, our home is conveniently located near tram stops and local hospitals.
With luxurious furnishings and amenities, Estia Health Prahran (formerly known as The Armitage) offers a welcoming and home-like atmosphere to residents and families alike.
Elegance and classical style describe the internal décor at Estia Health Prahran, which is beautifully furnished with maximum comfort and function in mind. This style is mirrored in the wrap-around balconies that feature garden chairs, flower beds and vegetable plots, providing greenery in a relaxed and calming outdoor space. Our residents enjoy a range of activities, from bus trips and lunch outings to crafts and gentle exercise. Wi-fi and computer facilities are available. There is also a dedicated library space with a wide variety of books, supplemented by visits from a mobile library service. Denominational church services, including Jewish, Catholic and Anglican, are held regularly and days of celebration are frequently enjoyed by our residents and families.
Well-balanced and nutritious meals are freshly prepared and cooked on site under the supervision of our professional chefs. A wide variety of health and wellbeing programs, designed by qualified coordinators, are tailored to each resident’s personal needs. Allied health professionals such as physiotherapists and podiatrists are part of our support team, and hairdressers are on-site as required. Pastoral care is also available. Importantly, we offer exceptional levels of care and service. Our staff are on call 24 hours a day to help out where required or just to share a quiet chat.
Spacious lounging areas with stylishly classical furnishings provide welcoming communal spaces where our residents can enjoy weekly exercises and musical entertainment, or relax and unwind in front of one of the flat screen televisions. Smaller sitting areas present ideal intimate settings to enjoy gatherings of friends and family, or to simply relax in private. In one lounge area, a wall-mounted fish tank brings a restful and engaging tranquility to the space. The elegance of the two dining rooms reflects the quality of daily menus, while a fully-equipped beauty salon offers residents an extra level of indulgence. Manicured native shrubbery surrounds our home, which has balconies that feature outdoor seating, greenery and tranquil views.
