Ultimate Care Greytown is situated on a quiet road, close to all the local amenities. It’s a small facility that really is a huge part of the community with lots of activities and integration with the locals. Even the community medical centre is located next door.

With gardens on all sides, our rest home specialises in palliative care and nothing is too much trouble for our staff when looking after our residents. With a homely feel, the facility provides access to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, along with an excellent activities programme and lovely meals.

Facility Manager Wilhelmina Mentz says, "The whole team is focused on giving our residents the very best in care. Staff here will bend over backwards to assist families and their loved ones – nothing is too much trouble. We offer 24 hour emergency support, nursing care and most importantly, companionship."
