Brunfelsia Residence and Care Centre is a home for the elderly nestled in the heart of the Natal Midlands in the picturesque country setting of New Hanover, South Africa.
Our local German/English community is very supportive of Brunfelsia offering entertainment and financial assistance from time to time. Our residents are also welcomed into the activities that are provided by the New Hanover Lutheran Congregation on the property.
We welcome Alzheimers and Parkinsons patients as they are safe in our home and will be given special attention.
Our staff often attend conferences and training courses in the fields of Alzheimers and Parkinsons and we pride ourselves in being fully trained to care for these patients.
