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.

What we offer:

    Methodist Homes has embraced the Eden Alternative approach and is slowly introducing these concepts to their everyday care. We are committed to changing the perceptions of an institution to those of a caring, loving, home away from home with person-centred care. Prim Villa, Prim Cottage, Prim Terrace and Prim Haven are places of hope where staff considers even the smallest achievement by a resident as a personal triumph – that is why we constantly encourage each and every resident and treat them with love, dignity and respect. At Prim Villa everyone matters!

    We join their journey and love and care for them just the way they are. This is how we know them because we do not have history with them nor them with us. We are not disappointed or frustrated by their need to use incontinence products or their inability to remember who they are and where they come from.

    We love them messy, feisty and forgetful.

    Methodist Homes is an NGO concerned with providing affordable, secure and caring accommodation for the elderly, across all races and religious denominations. Come and see our beautiful home for yourself.
