Accommodation for the active self-sustainable older person who still has the vigour and drive.

Flats Accommodation For Active Seniors

Are you shopping around for Flats accommodation suitable for your senior lifestyle? Very often when people decide to end their careers, the decision is accompanied by downscaling accommodation. It only makes sense to reduce the workload of maintaining a large property.

Relocation comes with certain concerns, it is a big change to make and you will most likely be spending a long time living where you move to next. With more than 30 years of operation experience, we understand your concerns and requirements.

The La Gratitude Flats is the perfect environment for the active older person who has the vigour and vitality to be self-sustainable. You can also opt-in for assisted living services. If you are looking for a more townhouse like environment, visit the Cottages page or the Frail Care Facility Page if you have specialized care requirements.

The Flats are available with many options. Follow the link below, if you are interested and want to find out more or start an application.

What Makes These Flats Special?

Is it even possible to get the perfect place to stay, you may be wondering. To answer that you have to first know what you are looking for, and that is the reason why so many people choose La Gratitude.  

Unlike any other accommodation you will be looking at, our flats are more than just rental units. La Gratitude specializes in taking care and providing for older people. Our flats come with many additional amenities and services specially designed to provide comfortable living conditions and a community that shares your values.

A Safe And Secure Environment

Your peace of mind is important to us and directly contributes to your wellbeing. That is why security is such an important factor and an integral part of our accommodation.

We have been working closely with the professional Ithemba Security company for a long time. Nothing is more comforting than knowing your home is protected 24/7, all hours of every day. 

All the entrances are permanently guarded around the clock with strict access control. Additional security features extend into each apartment to make up the panic button system, the evening tagging system and remote cellphone access. 

The Perfect Location

The Flats is situated in a friendly family neighbourhood known as Pioneer Park. It is important to acknowledge our environment where children still ride their bikes freely and families take their afternoon walks.

Pioneer Park is close to the town but just far enough to be out of the rush. Pioneer Park is a settled older residential area, with established roads and trees but not too much traffic. The area is also host to a shopping centre, churches and schools.

Staying Active Within The Flats Community

Not stagnating and staying active is an important part of senior living. Activities are well catered for and you have a variety of activities to choose from. The comforting part of this is that you know the rest of the people joining in these activities are all part of a close-knit community.

Some of the activities available include Putt-Putt, Bowls, Snooker, Darts and Braai Facilities. You also get access to our beautiful gardens with an Aviary and can take on gardening as a hobby.
