What to expect
The Sub-Acute facility (also called a step-down or intermediate facility) offers a small, comfortable setting with excellent one-on-one nursing care. We tend to welcome many older patients due to our expertise in caring for the elderly, but all ages are welcome.
You can expect to find a facility with 2 four-bedded rooms and 2 single rooms that open out onto two gardens, one with splendid views of Devil’s Peak.
Our tailor-made packages help patients reach their goals promptly. Our package of care includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological support, and social work support as well as visits from a medical doctor. This ensures each patient can perform the ‘activities of daily living’ before heading home.
