Brenthurst Residence Cape Town Old Age Home
Brenthurst Residence Cape Town old age home was founded in 1998 by CEO, Maxie Nunes. As an accomplished businesswoman with a flair for decorating and building, Matron Nunes brings more than 50 years’ experience in elder care and nursing home ownership to the management and care teams she mentors. She is passionate about honouring God, which is reflected in her determination towards excellence in all she does. Nursing is her calling, which led her to the uplifting and care of the elderly and their families for whom she holds out the Biblical promise of “Jehovah Nissi” – “His Banner over me is LOVE”, as on our letterhead. To this end, our staff is trained and mentored towards personal excellence, expertise and service of the elderly entrusted into our care. She strongly feels that growing old with vitality is supported by being active; having beautiful surroundings; being able to enjoy one’s food and family; and by receiving proactive physical, pycho-social and spiritual care.
Brenthurst Residence Cape Town Old Age Home is committed to caring
The elderly deserve to be able to continue making great memories of being loved and cared for with dignity and respect – to this end we dedicate ourselves. Imagine enjoying a life here, which includes the comfort of excellent nursing support as well as not having to worry about cooking, cleaning or laundry. In particular, you’ll feel welcomed by the smiling faces of our friendly staff who ensure that each day spent here is a pleasant one. Attention to detail means that each person is assessed on an individual basis with a tailored Care Plan. To ensure that needs are expertly met, our carers work under the supervision of the Nursing Sisters and Nursing Manager. The Matrons and Nursing Manager are keenly involved in the day-to-day operations and are available for family consultations or special needs. We offer quality assisted living, long-term memory care supportive of Dementia, short-term stays, palliative/terminal care and specialised frail care in a home-like setting. Our staff undergo monthly training to sharpen their skills. Because of the trust involved in placing your care and well-being in our hands, we endeavour to pick only the best staff who are set apart by their empathy, education and deep understanding of the unique needs of the elderly. Our Occupational therapist coordinates an enjoyable Activity and Occupational Therapy program.
