At Clarendon House in Pietermaritzburg we know that a life well lived can sometimes take a physical toll. So we provide levels of care for every individual whether it be independent living or frail care.
You've lived a good life, you've discovered the world and seen your family grow and prosper. Your days of climbing the corporate ladder have been replaced by days of quite reflection and gentle adventure.
And because you've become accustomed to a certain quality of living, we know you'll feel at home with us.
Our mission is to ensure that the ‘people first’ philosophy is brought to life as we provide quality service, lifestyle enhancement, and family support. The entire structure of our organizational belief is designed to support relationships between residents, family, staff and community. Clarendon House will provide care on three levels or stages, namely low, medium, and high care.
ASSISTED LIVING/MIDCARE: This level of care describe a person that is starting to require assistance. Generally, the person is no longer coping with the requirements of daily life. They also may need some assistance in either mobilizing or washing or with taking their daily medication. Generally people requiring midcare enjoy social events to be organized for them as they find the organizing and catering to be too cumbersome.
FRAIL CARE: at the frail care stage, a person would require a lot of nursing and he/she may need help with dressing and washing and toileting and may or may not be bedridden. A frail person may also be physically ok but mentally frail, requiring constant supervision
PALLIATIVE CARE: Clarendon House offers comprehensive respite, short or long term Palliative care for people suffering from a life threatening illness. Respite care is often needed to allow family caregivers to have a break or to go on vacation.
