St Vincent’s three residential aged care services: Auburn House, Cambridge House and Riverside House

St Vincent’s Hospital has three public sector residential aged care services.

The services are Auburn House in Hawthorn, Cambridge House in Collingwood and Riverside House in Richmond.

Auburn House is a 30 bed Aged Psychiatry Residential Facility set in the heart Camberwell. All residents that are admitted are first assessed by the Victorian Public Mental Health Aged Psychiatry Mental Health Service as requiring Aged Psychiatry Residential Care. Auburn House provides interim care and should residents no longer require this level of care in the future, residents are required to move to mainstream aged residential facilities.

Families, friends and volunteers are always welcome and in attendance at Cambridge house.
