A bit about Rubicon Care
Life seems to operate in seasons. New beginnings, your first job, the birth of your children is very much like spring. Summer brings with it promotions at work, toddlers becoming teens; pleasant effortless days to spend enjoying thriving friendships. All areas of your life seem to fall into place. Autumn brings an energizing change mixed with the reminder of days gone by, sending kids off to university and sometimes saying goodbye to a loved one.
And then winter sets in. But amid the colder season of life there are aloes of hope that bloom. Being mindful helps one to remove natural judgements about situations and assists one to view this season in a positive light. These are the golden years!
What can be better than living in the splendid weather of the Lowveld?
Rubicon Retirement Village offers a variety of occasions to make it your best years. Join the Tuesday movie club, Rummikub daily, Wednesday church service or the Friday Rubi Walk. Once a month, residents get together and share the ‘Story of my life’ with new friends over a cup of tea in the delightful Rubi Café dining room.
Rubicon Care…where a unique calibre of compassionate care is available to all!
On offer in the 20 bed Frail Care Centre is 24-hr individual nursing care as per needs identified, including supportive care (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and hearing tests) to address patients’ physical, psychological, emotional and social needs.
