A MODERN COUNTRY ESTATE

About Garlington Village

Garlington Village is found in the highly sought-after Garlington Estate in Hilton in the KZN Midlands. This unique development offers mature individuals the opportunity of a peaceful village lifestyle without having to forfeit the elegance and comforts of modern day life, or exceptional healthcare. Renowned for its climate and lush environment, Hilton has always been popular with individuals attracted to its relaxed and refined way of life.

A Unique Vision

Our vision is to create a unique lifestyle village where mature individuals enjoy exceptional standards of living with the highest quality medical care.

Residents enjoy a return to village life of years gone by, where elders played an integral part in the community and were cared for at home. Rather than being isolated, you are invited into a welcoming, multi-generational community and included in Village life. Breaking away from the institutional, ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to aging and healthcare, Garlington Village offers a highly personalised experience, ensuring your unique and changing needs are taken care of. Instead of being removed from your home to receive care, you receive highly individualised care in your own environment, surrounded by the things you love. The built environment and luxury facilities all lend to your wellbeing, with the rolling hills of the Natal Midlands serving as the perfect backdrop.

In essence, we envision a life worth living.

Our approach to care and design is founded on the principles of two global movements, the Eden Alternative and The Green House Project, started by Dr Bill Thomas. The Eden Alternative transforms the traditional culture of retirement villages and care facilities into inviting, meaningful communities where people want to live and where their individuality is valued. The Green House Project is a design concept flowing from this, seeking to create homes and caring environments which nurture a rich and meaningful life.

Unparalleled Lifestyle
