”Forgetting but not forgotten”
A registered and privately run assisted-living residence specializing in the care of up to ten residents presenting with the early stages of Alzheimer´s and Dementia-related conditions, built on the spacious hilltop property of the Norwegian Settlers Church in Marburg.
A home-away-from-home, set in tranquil, beautiful surrounds overlooking banana plantations, sugarcane fields and also the Indian Ocean in the distance. A haven offering excellence, a peaceful existence and well-being not only to its residents but also to their loved ones.
Here we recognize the need to accommodate those among us who are experiencing memory challenges and who can no longer provide adequately for themselves. Our commitment is to provide personalized, compassionate and loving care to them whilst at all times respectfully upholding each resident´s dignity through the creation of an atmosphere of belonging, normality and enhancement of the quality of life. At the same time we provide residents’ loved ones with peace of mind.
Our ratio of professionally trained and dedicated caregivers to residents
This ensures that our residents receive the very best care at all times and that their days are spent with those who make time to sit and listen to their stories, play games with them, accompany them on walks and assist them with self-care. All the bedrooms are en-suite, equipped with the necessary support systems and open up onto the patio. A spacious, well illuminated living room creates an atmosphere of relaxation and a sense of being at home. Well-balanced and nutritious home cooked meals are enjoyed in our open-plan dining area. Our recreation room can provide hours of entertainment or simply a retreat from others.
The Genesis Trust, in recognizing that it would be wise to continue to rely on the support of Government and the kind donations of overseas churches and other benefactors, has decided to embark on sustainable projects that will earn money which can be used to sustain the Care Centre. There is a need for the Trust and particularly the Care Centre, to become self-sustainable and end its dependency on funding by Government and the donations of others. Since it will be a paying facility for residents, the profit made by the Trust will be used to fund the Care Centre, whose services to the indigent are free.
The Eugene Wiseman House is the first phase of two houses and second phase of our facility, the Lynn Boucher House, will include frail care for those who require more than assisted living.
