We offer a three-tiered level of accommodation and service:
Gary Smorgon House
A new era in aged care
This exceptional contemporary development offers a modern, stylish and spacious environment situated amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, within a friendly, vibrant community. Gary Smorgon House, incorporating Melbourne Hebrew Memorial Nursing Home, provides residents with the opportunity to experience real luxury and an outstanding array of services and activities. Offering low, high and dementia care options, Gary Smorgon House allows for progressive levels of care if and when they are needed.
But it’s not just the building that has been innovatively designed. Gary Smorgon House represents a pioneering new approach to aged care. Our ‘Ageing in Place’ initiative ensures that residents receive the appropriate level of care without ever having to leave their new home. We have designed our services, facilities and levels of care to accommodate changing needs – in most cases without having to change rooms.
Continue to enjoy your lifestyle
Positioned in Freeman Street, in the heart of Caulfield, Gary Smorgon House allows you to continue to enjoy your lifestyle in this idyllic location. Arrange to meet long-time friends in your favourite cafe, enjoy a relaxing walk in the park, take a stroll to the shops or visit your local shule. At Gary Smorgon House everything you know and love stays with you.
It's also a place for shared beliefs. At Gary Smorgon House we have our own Shule and Rabbi for religious observance, as well as regular celebrations to mark important events and Jewish traditions. It's all about sharing the company of others and doing the things you enjoy the most, in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable.
The community celebrated Gary Smorgon House's first Siyum and Hachnasat Sefer Torah.
