Facilities

Other amenities include residents’ bar, library, TV lounge, snooker room, boule pitch, mini gym, yoga and bridge as well as braai facilities. There is a heated swimming pool and a patio with cushioned chairs for relaxation. Clubhouse facilities are available free of charge to residents for special, private or individual functions.

Health Care

Primary Health care is provided during office hours by two qualified nursing sisters at our clinic. After hours and over weekends one of the sisters is on call for emergencies. Under the supervision of the sister in charge, private nursing services may be contracted by residents post operatively or if ongoing care is required. Being a small community, logistic and financial constraints rule out the provision of frail care. The policy is to enable residents to remain in their homes for as long as possible by arranging outside medical support which is paid for by the resident.

Each cottage is equipped with a Telecare Unit, which enables the resident to be in contact with the Telecare Call Centre. Residents are able to confirm that they are up and about each morning by pressing a blue response button.

Similarly, in the case of an emergency the red button or personalised panic button will attract the attention of the call centre which will dispatch the necessary personnel.

Security

Security includes 24 hour guards, controlled access, regular internal perimeter patrols and monitored electrified fences. In addition to the telecare medical emergency unit, each cottage has panic buttons linked to our security company, who will respond in the case of an emergency.

Each cottage has three smoke detectors installed which are monitored by our security service provider.

Ownership and Management

Cottages remain the property of the Alphenvale Trust which is run by 4 trustees, all of whom are residents, and occupation is offered on a Life Right basis. The daily management and control of the village is in the hands of the General Manager under the guidance of the Alphenvale Trust and a committee elected each year by the Management Association, consisting of all the Life Right owners. On resale of a Life Right, 35% of the profits plus a 3.5% sales commission on the transfer price accrue to the Alphenvale Trust. The balance of the profits accrue to the seller as well as the original purchase price. The value of any improvements as certified by the Trust is also repaid to the seller.

Levies

Levies cover insurance of the buildings, access to primary health care, municipal rates, services and taxes, maintenance of grounds and exteriors of cottages, electricity for common areas, security and village management. The current levy for meals is R932 per person per month and is payable by every owner/resident. This levy provides approximately 9 meals per month however; additional meals may be taken which will be added to residents’ monthly account. Friends and family are most welcome to join residents. Bookings are essential and are done simply by booking in the meal diary at Reception.

Pets

A small dog and cat are allowed, however, fencing is required for dogs.
