Livewell Suites Somerset West

Livewell Suites develops, owns and operates senior living and healthcare facilities.

Our vision is to set a new benchmark in dementia and Alzheimer’s care in South Africa.

The warm and genuine engagement that we have enjoyed with every single member of staff we have met has been another 'keep pinching myself' experience. It’s evidently not 'just a job' for these wonderful people – it’s a way of life and a delight.”
- Alice

We strive to:

•    Redefine the principles of best practice for dementia and Alzheimer’s care in South Africa;
•    Adhere to international standards for dementia and Alzheimer’s care;
•    Develop and operate senior living facilities based on hospitality fundamentals;
•    Create a warm and homely environment for elders and care partners
•    Provide person-centred care for life

These principles find expression in our motto: ‘Quality and hospitality, for life.’

Our healthcare objectives are:
•    To provide only the highest quality healthcare for our residents
•    To ensure that quality of life for our residents directs our all our actions
•    To be the point of reference against which all care facilities in South Africa measure themselves
•    To be the leading training and support facility in senior care
•    To ensure that the well-being of care partners and staff members remain a priority

Livewell Suites’ person-centred approach offers an alternative to cold and sterile institutionalised care facilities. We facilitate and encourage ongoing interaction with the surrounding community, children and other resident, and even animals and plants, to enhance vibrant senior living communities.

Affiliated to Dementia South Africa and Alzheimer’s South Africa, Livewell Suites Somerset West are setting a new standard by providing exceptional quality dementia care – for life.

Unfortunately the industry norm has become that people with dementia are often isolated in high-rise apartments, with no freedom and little opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, gardens or a leisurely walk. Livewell Suites Somerset West offers international best practice in dementia care in an environment where residents are encouraged and assisted to make full use of the picturesque gardens, shaded seating areas, walkways and terraces in an estate fully secured and guarded, twenty four hours a day.

With a purpose-built facility, we offer the full range of services in dementia care, including the following: day-care, outings, companionship, permanent residence, couples residence, frail care, respite care, holiday care, independent living, assisted living, support groups for families and staff, workshops for residents as well as visitors, a resource centre, research and guest suites.

All of our planning, decision-making, innovation, training and ultimately care-giving, are tailored to individual needs to ensure we provide the very finest senior living yet.

“We thank the Livewell team for making a traumatic period and decision so much easier for the whole family. “
- Mandy
