Jenny, Belvidere Testimonial

Jenny: Belvidere Park Care Centre has always justifiably had a good reputation for a high standard of care in beautiful surroundings.  As residents we have peace of mind knowing that there is 24-hour assistance and advice at our Care Centre.  Our nursing sisters, carers and cleaning staff carry out their duties in a professional and efficient manner.  I love meeting our nursing sisters out and about during various times of the day in the cottage areas…..lots of friendly banter but kind and meaningful attention as well.

What a treat to go down to the dining room a couple of times a week…..enjoy a delicious meal and a glass of wine and socialise with other residents…….a welcome break from shopping, cooking and washing up afterwards!  Having an option of meals available which can be ordered and delivered daily, as well as simply knowing there is a system in place during times of ill health, is in my view, invaluable.

I am appreciative and grateful when I open the doors every morning and see our truly beautiful and tranquil surroundings.  I love to hear friendly chatter in the street or laughter and sounds of fun emanating from the croquet lawn.

Belvidere Park and the estate is a haven of peace and beauty (and a welcome retreat during the ‘silly season’!)



Ann Belvidere Testimonial

Ann – The Sisters and carers are always marvellous but I am not an in-patient yet at the Care Centre!  General living at Belvidere Park is very good.  I feel most welcome.  We have people who are making great efforts to get us all active and interested in social activities.  Belvidere Park plus its surrounds is an ideal place to live, in all respects.  Maybe a little distance away for ambulances and doctors for us oldies!


Keith & Colleen, Belvidere Testimonial

Keith & Colleen – The quality of the health care service at Belvidere Park is excellent, kind and caring helpers are always available.  The Sisters are always willing and we never feel that we are a nuisance to anyone.

The facilities at the Park are constantly available and we feel that we are very privileged to be here.  When we consider the community spirit, organised social activities, the peace and safety of the Park we feel really blessed by the exceptional caring of the management and the beauty of our surroundings.  The location is excellent and our decision to live here was exactly the right thing to do, we feel loved and secure!

Monica Belvidere testimonial

Monica – It’s very reassuring to know that the staff at Belvidere Park are always willing to hold my hand and see me through my panic attacks and whenever I need them – the Care Centre staff are not nursing sisters and carers – they are Angels sent from Heaven.  I am also so grateful that my meals are delivered to my home on a daily basis.

With regard to the community spirit, peace, safety, the beauty and the views – you don’t have to die to be in Heaven, you are already there!

My thanks and love to all at Belvidere Park.

Anon praises the care centre staff, Belvidere Testimonial

Anon – My husband spent time in the Care Centre, before he passed away and the staff were very kind and caring to him – my grateful thanks.  They all go out of their way to care for their patients.  With regard to the facilities at Belvidere Park, they are great and much appreciated.

The Park is a wonderful place to live in, in your old age.

It’s in a great location and wonderful for family to come and visit.


Helen C, Belvidere Testimonial

Helen C – The grounds are beautifully kept.  Catering in the dining room is good and having meals delivered is a great help if one is incapacitated.  I feel very safe here and enjoy the peaceful ambience.

Belvidere Park is inconvenient for day-to-day shopping but Knysna is a great town to visit and my family need no persuading!

Helen O, Belvidere Testimonial

Helen O. -During Mike’s illness and stay in the Care Centre I can genuinely say that he had 10/10 treatment.  It was a relief having him there and knowing that he was well cared for – from the Sisters to the carers and cleaners.  I can highly recommend it.  Ten out of ten for general living and again 10/10 for the location!

Peter & Val Belvidere Testimonial

Peter & Val – The day after we arrived at Belvidere Park Val, my wife, fell ill with a sore tummy.  I called the Care Centre and within a few minutes the nursing sister arrived and called the doctor who sent Val directly to hospital.  She had surgery and on her return to the Park she was nursed daily by the two nursing sisters.  We cannot praise highly enough the dedication and efficiency shown by Srs. Bronwen and Molly in Val’s rehabilitation to health.  To us they are both stars and deserve the Park residents fullest praise.

With regard to the facilities at Belvidere Park we find the cleanliness and beauty outstanding and the feeling of safety, after big city life, outstanding.  The joy of receiving meals at the cottage – excellent!  Everyone is so friendly and we hope to get to know more residents as time goes by.

Belvidere Park is ideally situated, not too far to town but far enough to escape the crowds and noise pollution, in a beautiful, serene setting.  Belvidere Park is the place to be!

Jaqui & Henning Belvidere Testimonial

Jaqui & Henning – From the little we have needed of the health care service at Belvidere Park we can only say whatever we did need, was very efficient, caring and prompt.  The staff are well trained.  I needed a dressing changed a few times and the Sister was always willing, friendly, caring and loving.  The Park has an excellent team.

Regarding the services at Belvidere Park, from the emergency call system, security, beautiful and tranquil gardens, the croquet court to dining room service with delicious meals at very reasonable prices, we are happy.

There is an excellent community spirit – friendly, caring people, sociable but not interfering, respecting our privacy.
