Schonenberg Retirement Village

The first question asked by many people who enquire about purchasing a unit in a retirement village is, “do you have primary health care for residents?

At Schonenberg this is included in the basic village levy and is not paid for as and when the service is used, unlike a frail-care centre.

Primary health care in a retirement village context includes qualified sisters seeing and treating residents for day-to-day ailments that are not severe enough to warrant a doctor or hospital visit.

The Frail Care units at Schonenberg Retirement Village are located on the ground floor of the Health Care Centre. There are 11 single rooms and 3 double rooms making it a total of 17 beds. For more information, click here
