New Life Retirement Villages Durbanville


New Life Retirement Villages Durbanville were established by Henry Nel in Durbanville, Cape Town.

These retirement centres are built around the idea of providing a vibrant social community where the elderly can transition into a ‘new season of life’ with valuable friendships and peace of mind.

New Life Community Services has 3 unique retirement centres that are all designed to enhance the sense of community and family.

Onze Molen was built in 2001 and consists of 35 apartments, which are either Bachelor, 1 or 2 bedroomed. It was the first of 2 more centres to follow, Vygeboom and Manor on Lords Walk.

Onze Molen facilities on-premises include; a lounge area, dining hall, tea room and large patio with braai area, a beautiful established garden and Oak trees dating back to 1800s. It is also situated next to the exclusive area of Aurora, Durbanville.

Manor on Lords Walk was built in 2006 and boasts 29 separate apartments comprising of Bachelor units, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments.

This retirement village is very affordable in terms of prices in Durbanville, the best value for money. It has a spacious dining hall, communal braai area, garden area, secure parking and electric fencing.

Vygeboom retirement centre is considered to be New Life’s flagship centre. This French-style centre features granite countertops, travertine tiles and chandeliers.

People have commented that Vygeboom is more like a 5 star hotel than a retirement centre. Here we have 2 bedroomed apartments. Many have balconies with beautiful views of the mountains.

We offer the following services to all residents at any of our Retirement Villages Durbanville:

· A qualified nurse runs the blood pressure clinic and checks vital signs and records on a weekly basis.

New Life Community Services´ unique value…

New Life Community Services have designed their retirement centres around community enhancement as a core and to cater to all levels of affordability. We did this through a life Right

Development model where typically the most strategic advantage is in the decision-making process that remains in the hands of the non-profit with a vested interest in the elderly unlike a traditional body corporate that is self-serving at the cost of the community and adequate service provision. The non-profit board is made up with people who have a heart for the elderly and the well-being. This is foremost in all decision making.

When deciding to purchase at one of our Retirement Villages Durban, please note the following:

· Our centralised care centre provides assisted living options and carers as needed at all 3 retirement centres.

· Life Right purchasers must be over 50 years old.

· No transfer costs and attorney’s fees are applicable.

· The New Life purchase model of Life Rights means on resale you will get the original purchase price back plus 30% of the profit.

· Daily meals availability, on a pre-order system. No minimum monthly order required.

· Shaded carport available to rent.

Why Life Right?

Life rights developments are growing in popularity in South Africa. They offer a more cost-effective and less onerous option for retirees than an investment in regular property types. The biggest advantage of the Life Right model is that the decision-making process with regards services and management lies in the hands of the non-profit. Who have a heart for the elderly and their well-being unlike sectional-title body corporates who are always trying to reduce costs at the expense of essential services desperately needed by the elderly.

Essentially Life Rights could be viewed as a housing product, an insurance policy and a good night’s sleep all rolled into one. With a lower financial barrier to entry than a sectional title or freehold house. Life Rights are an attractive option for those living on a fixed retirement income. The Life Right purchase is a purchase of peace of mind. ‘Life Right’ refers to a property contract whereby a resident enjoys the same privileges as if the home was purchased in a freehold or sectional title basis. This means the security of tenure until death. As such, much like in a marriage.

Life Right purchase is a cash purchase – there are no bond registration fees, no transfer duties and no VAT payable, thus avoiding the negative effects that such additional costs can have upon discretionary income and estate values.

Care Services:

Today’s trend is that the elderly are cared for as long as possible in their home by carers until such a time that they need to move to a care centre. Our carers and suites that facilitate assisted independent living are homely, personal and provide all that one would need in terms of care.
