Presbyterian Aged Care – The Terraces


“The Terraces” are situated in the highly sought-after suburb of Paddington in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. A brand-new, purpose built facility, it’s less than 500 metres to St. Vincent’s Hospital, less than 1 kilometre to Rushcutter’s Bay, and within 5 minutes’ walk in all directions are shops, cafés and galleries. They are fortunate enough to have a very large block –shared with the retirement apartment building that typically would be used to hold around 50 terrace houses in this area, so there’s a lot of space and very large trees to enjoy. Designed to accommodate “Ageing in place” the facility provides respite, residential, dementia, and palliative care. There are multiple lounge, dining, and activity rooms, a hydrotherapy spa bathroom, and the majority of rooms have their own ensuite.
