Estia Health Epping ‘The Poplars’ is one of Australia’s longest-serving and most well-established aged care facilities, with a history that dates back to 1928. And while it has been recently rebuilt and modernised, the home still retains its exceptional Frank Lloyd Wright inspired interiors, to create a truly breathtaking residence with the character of a grand country house. Offering large single private rooms with ensuites, many also feature kitchenettes and park views from their verandahs and balconies.

The stunning interiors and facilities are matched only by the beautiful landscaped gardens, flowing pathways and large open spaces.

For residents looking for an even greater level of luxury, Estia Health Epping is proud to offer an extra service option, which includes a fine dining menu, wine with meals, Foxtel in rooms and an even wider range of recreational activities.

Various members of staff speak a second language, and a number have been at the residence for many years, providing a genuine sense of familiarity, stability and understanding.

A dedicated cognitive support unit is also part of Estia Health Epping, and is designed specifically for those with memory and cognitive care needs, including dementia. This facility allows residents to benefit from ‘smart room’ technology, specially trained staff and a dedicated lifestyle and activities program.
