DURBAN – The Mount Edgecombe Care Centre at Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village has officially opened its doors.
Part of the guarantee to owners, by the developers, Collins Residential, was that the care centre will be amongst the first completed components within the development.
With the first residents of the The Mount Edgecombe Care Centre having moved in on 1 April, this promise has been delivered and Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village can unquestionably claim to be the only retirement village in KwaZulu-Natal to boast a care solution of this stature.
“The decision to operate the The Mount Edgecombe Care Centre seemed a natural step for us – a top-quality residential development should provide premium onsite care services for its residents and the wider public; we want people to choose to live here because they know there is a best-in-class care facility to cater for their needs at the different stages of their retirement life. The The Mount Edgecombe Care Centre is a synthesis of our many years of specialised industry experience and the best of our tried and tested methods and the wealth of experience and expertise of Collins Residential as developers,” Cornel Nieuwenhuizen, Director of TotalCare.
