At The Villa we extend our warmest welcome to you and your family, where dignifying and dedicated dementia care is rendered in a home-like environment.
The Villa is situated on Nazareth House Cape Town’s secure property, in the peaceful neighbourhood of Vredehoek. Our care team will see to all your primary care needs, emotional well-being, spiritual needs and physical comfort, as the Sisters of Nazareth have been doing for the past hundred years here at Nazareth House.
Dementia describes a group of symptoms where a decline in memory, visual perception and ability to focus or reason, is severe enough to reduce a person’s ability to perform day-to-day tasks. Thinking skills, behaviour and emotions, can also be negatively affected. Although dementia comes in many forms, Alzheimer’s disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases and Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type.
The Villa at Nazareth House Cape Town is a specialised care centre offering one-on-one care for residents. The Villa was developed in line with global best practices for dementia care. Key to our approach is an emphasis on person-centered care whereby we focus on the person and their individual needs, instead of their diagnosis.
At Nazareth Care, the focus is on Quality of Life and this remains the central goal of the entire organization.
Quality of Life may be defined as encompassing personal culture along with physical, mental, and spiritual health.
The implementation of Occupational Therapy facilitates a holistic intervention, which is aimed at providing a unique, person-centered treatment approach to every resident, based on his/her unique needs, abilities and preferences.
At Nazareth Care the residents are provided with the most comfortable, safe, stimulating, welcoming, and homely environment for them to spend their golden years, knowing they are valued, loved and understood.
At Nazareth Care, the Sisters and staff are dedicated to providing a safe and loving atmosphere where seniors are encouraged to maintain their independence… If you are looking for yourself or a family member then Nazareth Care is here to help you find the best option for your family.
We care and are committed to becoming your guide, trusted resource, and partner during this challenging time. We will help you navigate the sometimes complicated world of senior care and services to ensure your needs are met with confidence, care and respect.
