Willow Haven Retirement Centre

Willow Haven is a residential development designed for the over 50's who enjoy an active and socially varied lifestyle with an emphasis on healthy living, but who are looking at simplifying their lives by downsizing accommodation and the related maintenance and management requirements. We have catered for security, pleasant surroundings, services and the wellbeing of our residents.

Willow Haven is situated in the The Willows area of Pretoria East. Tall Palm trees welcome residents and visitors to this garden paradise where scents of lavender accompany residents throughout what is indeed a "haven".

Having more freedom to do what you enjoy most is what retirement is all about and that is what the developers had in mind. At Willow Haven, residents have more freedom to pursue interests and hobbies, and to discover new talents - to live the way they choose.

A garden courtyard marks the social centre of the community where residents gather to enjoy strolls among the trees and rosebushes, or to simply sit and converse with one another. The centre also features a pool where residents can take an afternoon dip while enjoying the serenity of the surroundings.

Emphasis on "care" is what makes Willow Haven unique and residents can expect enhanced opportunities for health and life fulfilment as the additional benefits of having frail care facilities and wheelchair access ramps in a secure environment with 24-hour gated security and a perimeter wall topped with multi-zoned electrified fence provides residents with assurance of safety and peace of mind.

Community Centre
A healthy and independent lifestyle that gains from strong social connections is a leading factor in life fulfillment and extended health, and here at Willow Haven we strive to create an environment that teams with opportunities for social interaction and so designed the Centre to accommodate these expectations. Centrally located and comprising of a dining room, library, coffee lounge, administrative office, 1st level nurse office and exercise room, the spacious community centre also features a piano and television area.

Dining Area
Tasty and well-balanced meals are served in our dining area at reasonable prices. Lunches are served daily. Special arrangements can be made with the managers for functions such as parties and family gatherings.

Coffee Lounge
Our large yet cozy coffee / hobby lounge is frequented by residents who come together to enjoy a cup of coffee, play the piano or participate in a game of cards.

The library features an extensive collection of both English and Afrikaans fiction and non-fiction books as well as a large collection of various magazines.

Medical / 1st level nursing
