Our different flats and rooms, in all sections of the Huis Nuweland retirement home, are located in one building bordering Sylvia, Eden and Alma Roads in Upper Claremont.


  • Free Wi-Fi 24/7/365
  • Solar panels on the Alma Rd side of the Home (our northern roof)
  • Lithium Batteries/Inverter to counter loadshedding (all lights, Wi-Fi and certain key components keep going through loadshedding)
  • Roaming assistance by Caregivers during daytime (7-days a week during office hours only) in Independent/Limited Care sections of the Home
  • Clinical and ‘walk-about’ rounds – as scheduled during daytime; and every two hours at night in the Care Centre (inside the rooms, if so agreed); (and as far as the Independent and Limited Care sections are concerned, at night-time in the passages only)
  • Daily greetings, check-ins and medication rounds by the senior nursing staff (mornings and evenings)
  • One main meal per day – lunch (for all types of accommodation; the only meal standard for residents in flats, unless they opt for other meals – i.e. our small suppers are available at only R10-00 per meal. This is a bargain indeed)
