We offer the following:

Medical Care


Most of our residents have medical needs and for this reason St. Giles employs a full time and experienced Matron who manages a team of nursing staff and care workers.

Medical care is provided on a 24 hour basis.

The nurses and care workers also assist residents with activities of daily living like bathing, toiletry requirements, dressing, feeding and transferring from wheelchairs.

Residents are transported to Johannesburg General Hospital for routine medical examinations as well as medication.


Social & Emotional Support

Our Physiotherapy program is highly beneficial for the mobility of limbs and to maintain or improve muscle tone.

Our Hydropool is heated and a wonderful therapeutic resource.

Our Social Worker contributes to the social and emotional wellbeing of the residents by offering support and counseling services to residents and their families.

Another area of focus is to enhance the quality of life of residents by empowering them with coping and problem solving skills.

It is the role of the social worker to handle admission enquiries and coordinate the screening process for new admissions.

St. Giles is also actively involved in community outreach projects whereby we assist disabled people in the community by sharing professional expertise and facilities
