Our Vision

Our vision is to transform elder care, to help residents enjoy an empowered, independent and vibrant existence. The Brenthurst Difference ensures that loneliness, helplessness and boredom are eliminated.

Engaged and Fulfilled

Life at Brenthurst is designed to ensure residents are both engaged and fulfilled. As part of our care routines, elders are treated to daily activities, pampering, stimulating games and occupational therapy programmes.

A care community with heart

Brenthurst Residence is committed to changing the culture of elderly care. By delivering expert nursing and general care with dignity and respect, a community is built where residents enjoy personal growth.

About Us

Established by Matron Maxie Nunes  in 1998, Brenthurst Residence was born from a desire to uplift and care for the elderly. Brenthurst’s staff are trained and mentored to deliver personal excellence, expertise and superior service when care-partnering with its elderly residents and their families.

The Brenthurst Difference

Driven by the Eden Alternative philosophy, Brenthurst Residence offers a true home-like environment for elders. From facilitating residents to live with their small pets in dedicated pet health areas, to the freedom to decorate their own flatlet, single or double room, with DSTV and WiFi access, the environment is one of dignity, independence, advanced care and support.
