FEEL AT HOME AT BRENTHURST RESIDENCE
Senior living should hold some of the best, most stress-free years of your life. This is what Brenthurst Residence offers – you’ll feel right at home!
This is an Eden-inspired Elder Centered Care Community. It lies in the heart of the upmarket Plumstead, Cape Town, and is staffed by empathetic, informed Care-partners, devoted to delivering only the best care for discerning elderly.
Underpinned by Christian values, and guided by an on-site Pastor, this oasis offers a “home-away-from-home” environment for elders and their pets. Matron Painter and her team care for elderly with compassion, helping them to overcome loneliness, helplessness and boredom. With a passion for people, communities and excellent care, you can expect the warm smiles and services of our friendly staff to brighten each day.
Our vision is to transform Elder care, to help residents enjoy an empowered, independent and vibrant existence. With daily activities, onsite pampering, delicious, flavoursome meals, excellent services throughout all the care levels known as “Extended Care”, “Residential Care” and “Supported Care”, every effort is made to see that resident’s needs are met.
Yet we know that real contentment requires much more than meeting basic needs. We know that relationships matter. So we work hard to create an environment where loving companionship can be nurtured. Elders deserve easy accessto human and animal company. This is why we strongly urge residents to keep small pets, drawing love and comfort from their constant presence. We also encourage human connection with friends and family. Open visiting hours, options for family meals and free tea for visitors inspires a real human habitat, connection and community life.
