Health Care Centre at Peers Village
Located within the grounds of the well-known Peers Retirement Village is the Peers Village Health Care Centre. The Health Care Centre is registered as a Non-Acute facility.
The aim of the Health Care Centre is to provide a superior permanent or temporary Frail Care facility for the frail and elderly, who are recovering from an operation or an illness, or who are too frail to care for themselves, while recognizing the individual needs of each patient.
In addition to the care of the patients in the Health Care Centre, a high priority is placed on the health care and well-being of all Villagers. The Health Care Centre provides whatever assistance Villagers require in order to recover from illness and to remain in good health.
Peers Village Health Care Centre does allow Non-Village-Resident admissions. Should non-village-residents wish to enquire about admission to Health Care, please contact Matron – Sr Elzie Klopper (Ph: 021 787 0204) who will guide you through the process.
Currently (as at June 2018) Beds are available for non-village-resident Patients.
