The home receives some subsidisation of rent for qualifying seniors, making Sunnyside Park affordable to those who are over sixty years of age and living on a state grant or limited income. Consideration is given to under aged disabled people to be accommodated.

The pricing for all accommodation options is based on the unit cost with consideration of each senior’s income and is usually negotiated. The declared unit cost for full residential in Azalea Wing is R4 970, for frail care R13 000 per month incl. vat.

The “Boarding” option in Hydrangea Wing is unique in Pietermaritzburg and offers safe, secure, residential accommodation to those living solely on the state grant. It offers a single room, a substantial midday meal, laundry service, the cleaning of communal areas, access to transport and self catering amenities.

The demand for accommodation, especially frail and respite care at this facility is high. The waiting list is long and so we recommend you make contact early if you, or a family member are considering Sunnyside Park Home. The cost is R 4 242 per month (vat incl) for boarding, and R450 (vat incl) per night for respite care.
