Highlands House is home to the elderly parents, siblings, relatives and friends of many in Cape Town’s Jewish Community. Residents aged 60 – 100+ are cared for according to their emotional, physical, spiritual and social needs.
— Delia Kaplan, Deputy Director
Situated in one of Cape Town’s most tranquil suburbs, for more than 100 years, we have been dedicated to providing our residents with the physical, emotional and spiritual care and support they need.
From the expert and personal care that our residents of all ages receive to the wide variety of activities and social events we offer, we cater to the individual wellbeing of each and every person living in Highlands House. As all our residents share a Jewish background, our Highlands House Synagogue also offers them the opportunity to observe and celebrate their faith and traditions, surrounded by friends and family.
With our residents, visitors and staff making up such a vibrant community, Highlands House is a place that offers people, young and old, the chance to really connect with one another. And while we constantly strive to improve and surpass all the services that the home has to offer, Highlands House remains a haven where our elderly residents can truly make the very most of their golden years.
The management team at Highlands House comes with a wealth of experience in public and private healthcare, social work and occupational therapy, among other skillsets.
