Ron Smith Care Centre
The well-appointed centre offers comfortable accommodation within Elphin Lodge retirement village which incorporates the village and the care centre seamlessly into a happy, active social environment.
Only the second care centre in Africa to receive Eden Alternative registration, Ron Smith Care Centre offers quality care for 160 people in either single or double rooms, with or without private bathrooms in a choice of wings.

The surroundings are pleasant and secure, enhanced by trees, well tended gardens and dams with a variety of bird life. Dotted around are benches, offering residents, their families and friends the opportunity to enjoy peaceful periods outdoors. A coffee shop with outdoor and indoor seating offers a tempting menu for visitors and residents.
Rand Aid Association recently opened a specialised dementia unit at its Ron Smith Care Centre. The unit boasts 32 single rooms, most of which lead onto a spacious covered veranda. Families are encouraged to personalise each residents room by bringing pictures, a favourite chair and other items that will make the residents life comfortable and pleasant.
