About Yooralla’s Young Onset Dementia Care Home

This is one of only a small number of young onset dementia care homes in Victoria providing NDIS dementia supports to people under 65 years. Yooralla’s Young Onset Dementia service has been specifically designed so young people with dementia can be supported in their own home with housemates closer to their age, rather than in a nursing home.

We understand that for many people, privacy is an absolute necessity, so we offer all single rooms with their own private courtyard and ensuite. Each bedroom is spacious and is fitted with individual heating and cooling. Bathrooms are spacious and are fitted with ceiling hoists. NDIA design category - High Physical Support.

There are three other Yooralla residential houses at this location in Thornbury. As well as your own private spaces in the home, and your home’s shared living areas, you will have full access to the expansive outdoor spaces in the broader Yooralla property. This includes a food forest garden and a large BBQ area, providing the perfect setting to relax or have your friends and family visit. The home is in a prime location across from a park and oval, conveniently nestled in a residential street next to the Darebin Creek trail and less than 2kms from Fairfield Village shopping precinct.
