Summervale Frail Care Centre

Care Centre

Summervale Lifestyle and Retirement Village in Gordon’s Bay (Helderberg) also boasts a very attractive, well run Frail Care Centre.

It has 14 frail care beds with an interleading shower and toilet that is shared between two Care Centre rooms.

In addition, there are 14 one-bedroom flatlets in the Care Centre that consist of a bedroom and en suite bathroom. It has an open plan lounge/dining area with a kitchenette. There is room for a fridge, microwave kettle and toaster.

The Care Centre also has 7 bachelor units with an en suite bathroom. The kitchenette can accommodate the same appliances as the one-bedroom flats of the Care Centre

All the flats and bachelor units of the Care Centre have access to either the quad or to the outside living area.

None of Summervale Frail Care Centre units are for sale and can only be rented.

The flats and bachelor units of the Care Centre are for more able-bodied persons who need little assistance.

Truly one of the best Care Centres in the Western Cape!

The price includes:

  1. 24-hour nursing care. Seeing to the wellbeing of your loved ones and assisting where required.
  2. Medication is managed by the sisters on duty as well as liaising with family and doctors if necessary.
  3. Laundry and cleaning of the assisted living units is done weekly.
  4. The frail cares’ laundry is done daily.
  5. Three nutritious meals are served per day as well as evening sandwiches with something warm to drink.
  6. We endeavour to have weekly activities in a group to lessen the loneliness some of the residents feel.


Other attractions which are available for the use of our Care Centre residents are:

  1. A library, a lovely restaurant where our more able-bodied residents can go and enjoy a meal with family and friends.
  2. There are various groups like bingo, canasta and knitting which they could get involved in.
  3. There is also a lovely heated indoor pool that they could use.

We have a clinic at the Care Centre where the village of Summervale’s residents can come for minor ailments, sorting out of medication, wound dressings, blood pressures, advice and injections.
