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 Reform 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.
We at Park Care Centre would like to give a simple, heartfelt, and well-desrved THANK YOU to everyone for their warm generous donations, sponsoshirp and volunteering, we could not be more grateful for all the support. We at Park Care Centre are very grateful for all that you have given us in order for us to care for the old and frail.
