    Privately Funded Units (PFU):
    (NB: Prices subject to change / increase every April)
    The 128 units comprise spacious bedsitters, 1, 2 or 3 bedroom units or cottages at prices ranging from R317 000 to R1 550 000 with monthly levies from R1 730 to R3 890. The units are owned on a life rights basis. When a resident vacates a unit it is resold by the home. The resident is refunded a percentage of the sale price dependant on the number of years of occupancy. After 5 years it is fixed at 50%. The new selling price is market related and hence the refunded amount has often exceeded the original purchase price.

    Rented Units:
    The rentals range from R3 150 for a bedsitter to R6 520 for the 2 bedroom unit.

    Care Centre : Mid and Frail Care:
    The caring section has both a frail care and mid care. A matron, sisters, professional nurses and care workers ensure that residents are well cared for and that their needs are met.

    Accommodation is on a full board basis including all meals, teas, laundry, podiatrist, hairdresser, etc. A CCTV system has been installed in all rooms to enable nursing staff to continuously monitor the residents. Residents are also provided with a panic button.

    The mid care rooms each have their own bathroom and access to the gardens. The frail care residents make use of common bathrooms specially equipped to cater for patients who need assistance.

    An activities co-ordinator organises activities for these residents who are also encouraged to participate in all the activities of the folk in the village.

    There are rooms for singles and couples in mid care while in frail care there are rooms with 1, 2 or 4 beds. The monthly tariffs vary depending on the type and size of accommodation.

Waiting List

There is a waiting list for all forms of accommodation. In the case of frail care, accommodation can sometimes be immediately available, while for those requiring large cottages the waiting period could be several years.
