About our Dementia | Alzheimer Unit

The Grace Unit is designed to provide excellent care for those with conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and forms of Dementia.

The Grace Unit, was officially opened in October 2015 and provides care for up to fourteen people.

Grace Unit is a blessing and that is how we describe the time our Mom, Hannie spent at Grace unit, that was her home for almost 6 years. We were blessed with amazing staff that loved and cared for her and they become our family. Our Mom could not speak but the staff understood her in a way we can’t describe, they are real life angels. They were always there for her and that gave us a sense of peace knowing that she was taken care with exceptional love. We thank Matron Marlene and the staff of Grace Unit for the loving care and comfort they provided for our Mom. Adele Niemann
