Woodgrove Retirement Village offers seniors all the living options.
Enjoy the country feel of the park-like surroundings which create a sense of peace and tranquillity.

Woodgrove Retirement Village is PADCA's premier retirement village and is situated centrally in the northern suburb of Wembley, in Pietermaritzburg. There is a sense of peace and tranquillity once inside the entrance gates. From independent living through to frail care, we offer the full spectrum of living options including support, catering and care services. The undeveloped wilderness space is a favourite area for walks and a haven for birds and other wildlife.

We have three community areas available to residents. The Louis Sennett centre includes a spacious dining room, pub and meeting area. The Community Centre is used for meetings and a range of dynamic social activities including watching sports on the big screen. The Library area is a space of tranquillity in which there are comfy couches to enjoy the books or complete a puzzle.

Independent Living in The Village

The 172 independent living units are offered on an extremely advantageous life rights basis, and range in size from 50 to 200 m². The 9 different size options ensure there is a unit to suit every lifestyle and pets are welcome.

We have a Village Nursing Service which offers a clinic service and emergency care. The option to age in place with carers is available. Our Maintenance team cares for the buildings, grounds and units.

Our price list as well as our floor plans are available for download. You can take a virtual tour too.
