Welcome to Park Care Established Since 1961
Park Care is an independent, faith based, charity organisation, and is registered as a Non-profit Organization, as well as being registered with SARS as a Public Benefit Organization. Park Care provides specialized 24/7 nursing care and/or holistic support to older, and frail persons within a caring residential setting.
Everyone at Park Care enjoys peace of mind in an enclosed, secure complex with 24/7 security, surrounded by leafy gardens, rich with birdsong and established trees. Like the colours of a rainbow, many ethnic, language and religious segments are represented in Park Care’s resident profile. There has been residents as young as late 20’s and as old as 101 years of age.
The Dutch Reformed Church purchased the Park Lane Clinic/Nurses Home in 1961 in order to provide institutional care for older persons. The demand for frail care grew over time, and eventually, the core business focus shifted entirely towards care of the frail. The original buildings were renovated, and three new extensions were added in 2003. The Dementia care building, called Forget-Me-Not, was entirely designed to meet the specific needs of persons with Dementia, and special consideration was given to the need for safety, comfort and supervised nursing care. The original name of the home was changed from “Die Witwatersrandse Tuiste vir Bejaardes” to “PARKSORG SENTRUM/ PARK CARE CENTRE” in 2003, to reflect the centre’s focus on 24/7 residential nursing care.
A Thank You From Us

“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished…it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” — Denzel Washington
Park Care Centre – Maintenance and Repairs
To safeguard an excellent condition of our 6 buildings at Park Care Centre – we are in need of your substantial support for modification, upgrading, replacements, painting, reinforcements…. pillars and foundations, roofs, ceilings, walls, pain and sooo much more
Park Care proudly conducts its nursing services at the facility featuring 3 original buildings (original Park Lane Clinic) practically heritage structures, and 3 newer buildings added in 2003 – it is a classic facility situated in a prime location in a prime area
But, dear friends, let this not fool you, living in a prime area does not mean we are living in the abundance of wealth. What it does mean is that we are dependent on your support to help Park Care take care of the buildings (interior and exterior) to uphold a secure and charming residential facility for 320 24/7 frail nursing care dependent citizens
At the moment tiling and roofing repairs are being taken care of on the Clivia left wing rooftop.
Do you ever wonder where the money comes from to keep the frail nursing care centre in its premium condition? It doesn’t come from the government or from city funds. It comes from individuals, businesses and organisations as yourself.
St John’s Priory (Parktown, Jhb) recently contributed sponsored workmanship with repairs on the Clivia veranda roof to prevent leakages during the rainy seasons along with several other minor repairs needing attention…..
Every day we use available funds to pay for nursing staff, care workers, cleaners, kitchen personnel, the handful admin personnel to ensure best 24/7 nursing care for all residents and quality social services offered. On the contrary, in order to continue the upkeep of our buildings, there is a huge shortage in the budget.
So how do we get the funds we use? That’s the catchy part – through the financial support of people like you.
To warrant not only best professional holistic, palliative and other 24/7 specialized nursing care, social care, but also quality living – we need your help. Would you be willing to join forces with Park Care with your donation that will help determine future success stories of the philanthropic sector – in this case – the 24/7 Specialized Frail Nursing Care Services at Park Care accessible to 320 nursing care dependent people?
