Jewish Aged Care at Japara Central Park

Following an extensive multi-million dollar redevelopment, which involved refurbishing five floors of aged care accommodation, as well as adding an additional premium 6th floor to the existing building, Japara Central Park Nursing Home has recently re-opened to the public with a fresh new look.

Located at the corner of Raleigh Streets and Punt Roads in the heart of Windsor in Melbourne’s inner east, residents of Japara Central Park and their loved ones can enjoy the ambience of the neighbourhood’s many leafy streets and Victorian-era housing, not to mention stunning skyline and bayside views from the ‘skyline level’. Access to and from the city is also a breeze via nearby tram stops on St Kilda Road or regular bus services along Punt Road. However, fancy views aside, what sets this particular address apart from others in the growing Japara family is Central Park’s proximity to the heart of Melbourne’s established Jewish community which calls esteemed neighbourhoods like St Kilda East, Balaclava, Caulfield and Elsternwick home.

Key Features Of Japara Central Park Include:

  • 164 aged care beds in well-appointed private and shared rooms
  • 6 floors of aged care accommodation
  • 6th floor, the ‘skyline level’ offers 25 premium beds as part of Japara Signature program
  • Convenient location at corner of Raleigh Street & Punt Road Windsor
  • Leafy streets, parks and gardens nearby
