Visiting restrictions at Winston Park Care Centre are lifted!


Read more about Winston Park Care Centre


For the last 570 days or 13,680 hours, relatives and friends have, to varying degrees, been prevented from freely visiting their loved ones residing in frail care centres.

Loneliness and social isolation in older adults are serious public health risks affecting a significant number of people and putting them at risk for dementia and other serious medical conditions. A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) points out that more than one-third of adults aged 45 and older feel lonely, and nearly one-fourth of adults aged 65 and older are considered to be socially isolated. Older adults are at increased risk for loneliness and social isolation because they are more likely to face factors such as living alone, the loss of family or friends, chronic illness, and hearing loss.



Family and friends of residents residing in their care centre at Winston Park, providing they are vaccinated,  and visitation appointments have been made 24-hours in advance, no longer have to visit mom, or their friend,  from behind a fence; or hug her enclosed in plastic armour… or even see her through closed windows. The restrictions have been greatly reduced, allowing them to…

  • Visit family members in either their rooms; or in the community hall nearby.
  • Take their relatives home, or out, without the fear of being isolated on their return.

This then is the difference between Kloof Rest Home, and many other care facilities where humanity is sometimes sacrificed on the altar of safety.


Kloof Retirement Villages care, and continue to be committed to the provision of humane and meaningful lives!

Hooray! Hooray!
