Special Features
Special Features
You know there have been some changes at the rest home in Coronet Place, Avondale when you turn into the street for there at the end of the road is a large sign showing the AnneMaree Group logo of the bright yellow sunflower. It is an indicator of the philosophy of the AnneMaree group that stresses the importance of fun and laughter and the belief that everyone has potential.

Sheryl Samuel took over the ownership of the home in late 2003 and since then has been restoring, renovating and making many changes.

A number of the residents at AnneMaree Gardens require a secure environment so the gates are locked but please do come in as you will receive a very warm welcome.

The large old home is located on a three acre section. The layout of the house and grounds provides an ideal environment for residents. As some of the residents wander they can do so safely here without feeling too enclosed. The interior is designed so that the resident is provided with a circular hallway from which there are many exits to the outside. The gardens are divided up into different areas and are spacious so people can walk freely.

We use alternative remedies such as oils and massage therapy which we find particularly helpful for relaxing our residents.
