The Melvista

A state of the art residential aged care home planned for the residents of Nedlands

The Melvista Nedlands, by Oryx Communities will offer a new standard in prestigious aged care to people looking for a personalised experience. Oryx Communities engages in innovative, personalised and high-quality aged care solutions that support people to thrive. Guided by the values of integrity, respect, empathy and empowerment, Oryx Communities genuinely affirm senior citizens’ life achievements whilst providing comfort and reassurance of security and health services.

Planned to accommodate 90 aged care rooms and suites, the residence will be configured to allow flexibility in catering for aged residents with a diverse range of care requirements across the full spectrum from low care assistance and support to high care needs.

Currently, one in five older residents who requires care is unable to access it locally. The Melvista Nedlands will provide residents access to high quality amenities to ensure they are supported and comfortable in their new home. The opportunity for residents to remain in their local community as an aged person is fundamental to positive outcomes in the later stages of the ageing process.
