Our highest priority at Rathdowne Place is your happiness. Connection, respect and possibility are at the heart of everything we do and we go to great lengths to nurture an atmosphere of friendship and wellbeing.

Each residence is designed to support your comfort and independence and our trained staff are always on-hand to respond when you need them. It’s all just a part of what we like to call Better Together®.

From the moment you arrive at Rathdowne Place, you will notice the unique modern architecture, along with the quality, style and innovation of design. Our private rooms have been purpose-built to enhance your mobility, accommodate your changing needs and nurture your privacy and independence.

Your room is your own private haven in which to relax, read, spend time with visitors or catch up on your favourite television shows. We encourage you to personalise your room with your most treasured items: photos, artwork and mementos of loved ones—whatever you need to help make it home.

Rathdowne Place is located in the heart of the vibrant inner-city suburb of Carlton, with public transport and a wealth of amenities on your doorstep. Major hospitals and health services are also conveniently close, as well as Melbourne’s CBD for shopping and outings.

If you would like to take things easier, simply head outside into our beautiful shared gardens, relax in the surrounding parks or escape to our peaceful rooftop terrace. Whatever it is you and your loved ones enjoy doing, we will do whatever we can to help make it happen.
