Elijahs Old Age Home Durban offers residents frail care, mid care and assisted living. Elijahs Home endeavours to provide our residents with professional nursing and care. It offers a warm and loving environment, clean rooms and facilities, and nutritious, tasty meals.
We pride ourselves with the view that we are a “home” and not an institution. Family members and friends are encouraged to visit their loved ones at any time of the day. We have quite a few families that join their loved ones over lunch or tea.
Elijahs Old Age Home Durban Staff – Critical to the success of a Nursing Home is its staff complement. We manage the accountability of the staff. To us this is very important especially in the area of nursing and care giving.
We are staff intensive and currently employ the following in the nursing field:
- Registered Nurses
- Staff Nurses
- In-house Physiotherapist
We run four nursing teams (shift work). Head of each shift will report to the Sister in charge.
We have doctors in the area who willingly make “house calls” for any of our residents who are too frail to go and see the doctor at his/her rooms. The same applies to physiotherapist and audiologist who willingly come in to provide rehabilitative work on our residents.
At Elijahs Old Age Home Durban, we practice “pro-active” nursing which entails preventing accidents and illness wherever possible. This is achieved by rigorously monitoring all our residents on a daily basis. We also run “clinic” days where our house doctor assesses each and every resident through a range of blood/urine tests and a general consult.
Accommodation– Elijahs Home has 51 rooms, seven of which are double rooms , a ward and the remainder are single rooms. All rooms are fitted with TV connections. Although the rooms are all fully furnished, residents are encouraged to bring their own “special” furnishings, paintings and photographs so that they can create their own “homely feeling”.
Residents do share bathroom facilities and there is a general lounge and dining area.
We have a lovely under cover patio area which leads out onto a pretty garden which is well shaded.
Semi Frail and Final cost of frail care will be determined after assessing the resident.
There is an upfront non-refundable admin and booking fee of R1,000
We are conveniently situated less than 400 metres from the Musgrave Centre.
