Randjes Estate - House Care - Reduced (20240320)

Fleming House Care Accommodation

Our Fleming House care accommodation at Randjes Estate is designed to provide peace of mind to Residents, their families and loved ones.  Our Care Manager (Matron), sisters, nurses and care givers make up an exceptional team who do everything they possibly can to make our Residents in care feel at home, engaged and part of the community at Randjes.

Our professional team have a passion for aged care and they are uncompromisingly committed, so you/your loved one are in safe hands.

Randjes Estate is well known for the variety of accommodation options we offer.  In addition to our full continuum of care and support options, we also offer studio apartments, 1 and 2 bedroom homes for independent Residents on our beautiful well established 42 acre Estate.

We offer the following levels of care:
  • Mid Care (Assisted Living)
  • Frail Care (Dependent living)
  • Memory Care (including Dementia/Alzheimer)

Please note that Fleming House is a smoke free environment.

An application for Dependent Living needs to be completed.  Financial documentation will need to be supplied to verify affordability for the Resident with regards to the monthly rental commitment.  Family can sign surety on behalf of the incoming Resident, in which case we will need financial/bank statements, as well as a SARS clearance certificate from the person who is signing surety.

A full month’s rental is required as a pre-payment before admission, over and above the normal monthly rental amount. The deposit requirement does not apply to Residents living on the Estate.

Once your financials have been approved, and prior to admission to Randjes Estate, all new Residents (irrespective of whether they are independent Life Righters or they are going into Fleming House) will undergo a medical assessment by our onsite Doctor and our Care Manager.  The cost of the assessment is for the account of the potential Resident.  If you are a member of a medical aid the assessment can be submitted to your medical aid for possible reimbursement.

The result of the medical assessment will determine the level of independence and/or the level of care needed by the Resident so that the appropriate accommodation can be provided.
