The recent launch of Camelot Retirement Village, situated within the Hillcrest area, also saw the unveiling of The Association for the Aged (Tafta) Premium Care package.
Although Tafta is widely known for caring for the aged, this new package is a first for them as it seeks to target an entirely new market. The premium care range has been created to provide tailored, reliable, and personal care for the 50+ year old market and can be found at luxury retirement developments, starting at the Camelot Retirement Village onsite care centre.
"Healthcare is probably one of the most vital elements of retirement and we therefore wanted to ensure that those residing within Camelot Retirement Village have access to the very best. The World Health Organisation’s Ageing and Health report highlights four priority areas of action, which include providing healthcare solutions in line with the older population, developing long-term care plans, creating age-friendly environments and always looking at ways to improve continuously in these offerings. In light of this, we have chosen to partner with Tafta Premium Care for a number of reasons. We want to ensure that our residents are being cared for by experienced, multi-disciplinary teams. As it stands, Tafta have over 60 years’ experience, and their newly developed premium care package has been tailor-made with Camelot Retirement Village in mind. It is exactly the standard and long-term quality care solution we want available to our residents from the outset," said Wicus Jacobs, Chairman of Tafta.
Jacobs added, "Furthermore, Camelot Retirement Village provides a beautiful environment with ample space to remain active, with an 18-hole golf course, 3km safe nature trails, a non-high-tech bowling green, tennis court and swimming pool. Tafta is aligned with Camelot Retirement Village, as they also fervently promote ‘Active Aging’, while still providing frail care bed assistance, wellness management and basic monitoring.
Forming part of Camelot Estate, Camelot Retirement Village offers 44 apartments in Phase 1, with 1, 1.5, 2 and 3-bedrooms from R1, 845 000. This boutique retirement village will have direct access to an array of first-class facilities as well as an onsite Care Centre, which will be built within the first phase and run by Tafta Premium Care.
