Prim Villa - Germiston
Prim Villa Methodist Homes, located in Primrose Hill, specialises in caring for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Therapy plays a very important role in the total care and well-being of the residents because it helps to promotes friendship, mutual support and spiritual connections. Two recreational therapists assisted by nurses offer daily therapy activities to all our residents.
Our Care Centre accommodates forty two residents with advanced dementia who require more frequent and specific care. Our three mid care houses - Prim Cottage, Prim Terrace and Prim Haven - are home to thirty five residents living with early to moderate dementia. It has been proven that living in smaller home-like ‘family’ environments in the early stages is extremely beneficial to the well-being of residents with early to moderate dementia. As they feel safe and cared for in this type of supportive environment they can be themselves and become more responsive and more social.
The qualified and specially trained nursing staff and care givers in our Care Centre and mid care facilities understand that residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia often feel hopeless. They bath, dress, feed and take care of all our residents’ needs, and are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, offering residents love and attention and making life as comfortable and meaningful as possible for them. They are calm, loving, and passionate about what they do and most importantly, kind. This means peace of mind for the residents as well as for their loved ones.
