Amberfield's 400 sectional title units are situated on our established grounds, boasting lots of indigenous trees and beautiful open spaces.

Our main administrative building houses our office, kitchen, dining room, lounges, snooker room, library, salon & function rooms. This building is linked to our care centre.

Should a resident have a more serious medical condition there is a private hospital 2kms from Amberfield. This facility is fully equipped, including an x-ray section and an operating theatre. The hospital complex includes local doctors/specialists and is also serviced by visiting specialists from Pietermaritzburg.

Many dentists, physiotherapists, chiropractors and other medical related professionals are based in Howick, which is very convenient for our residents.

For residents that choose stay as long as possible in their units, before considering coming into our care centre,  there is an option to make use of trained caregivers for overnight or daily care. We also have facilities to provide cleaning, laundry & meals.
