    The Garlington community

    Garlington Village is home to a vibrant community, which is woven into the fabric of Garlington Estate. The streetscape and homes have been intentionally designed to create the atmosphere and community spirit of village life in years gone by. Therefore, it is common to see young families out for a stroll, children riding bikes and residents walking their dogs. More importantly, there is plenty to do at Garlington Village, from birding, bridge, regular teas, get-togethers, outings and more.

    How is Garlington Village different from traditional assisted living retirement and care homes?

    Garlington Village’s philosophy, care approach and design are what sets us apart from other Retirement facilities in KZN and across the country. Our philosophy is simple – to promote wellbeing and create a life worth living, no matter the age! Our approach ensures that our residents remain connected, engaged, autonomous and that they live with a sense of belonging and purpose.

    Unlike traditional retirement homes, Garlington Village’s Retirement units have a home-like feel. We believe in fun. Therefore, our Retirement units do not have rigid rules but are flexible and free-flowing. Our residents wake up when they like, eat when they want and what they like, are included in the day-to-day aspects of Village life and have the freedom to enjoy their lives. Our Village is intentionally kept small and intimate, and our residents are welcomed into the broader multigenerational community of Garlington Estate.

    The mixed-age approach is embodied in a model of a multigenerational community, a residential arrangement for young and old. This type of living benefits each generation and offers the opportunity to mingle with diverse age groups.

    Garlington Village is conveniently situated next door to the Hilton Life Hospital and close for families to pop in for a visit from Pietermaritzburg and surrounds.

    The Estate commands beautiful views of the lower Midlands countryside and sets a new standard in contemporary country lifestyle. Nourishing the human spirit through beautiful surroundings, architecture and community areas is at the heart of Garlington Estate, where there is particular emphasis on aesthetics, comfort and creating a sense of place.
