We are a friendly professional establishment with a relaxed atmosphere and homelike enviromnent.


We are committed to providing quality care and service. The emphasis, is on maintaining a strong sense of dignity, emotional and/or mental well-being. We belive that all care and services must be delivered with compassion, professionalism amd empathy, and practice of a continuum of Quality Assurance and Improvement.

To be independent, is to have the freedom of choice. To be able to live in an environment surrounded by ones own belongings, be close to relatives and friends, to personal privacy, and to sympathetic understanding and respect. It is our endeavour to provide the environment to fulfilthe emotional, social and spiritual needs of all residents, as they would desire.
