At The Village we strive to be a caring and compassionate leader within the senior living industry.
At The Village Retirement Home our mission is to provide quality medical and personal services that maximise the quality of life for seniors in need of retirement living and “assisted” living, by providing high-quality care that promotes a safe, healthy, and caring environment.
When you’re looking for an Independent Living, Assisted Living, Semi-Frail or Frail Care residence, it’s important to know what makes one community different from the other. Here’s what truly defines The Village difference:

attention to detail, to appeal to a range of residents.
You're in good hands
I am the owner of The Village. My husband and I have owned The Village for 27 years, but unfortunately, he passed away 18 months ago. My interests include reading, watching TV and knitting. I have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. I grew up in Zambia and moved to Durban in 1973 where we lived for 4 years. After a few more moves we finally returned to Durban in 1994 when we purchased The Village and have been here ever since.
I trained at the old Far East Rand Hospital from 1973 to 1976 and passed cum laude, and have been nursing ever since. I have experience in all different areas of nursing. Recent work experience at Westville Life Hospital for numerous years, where I also did my orthopaedic course and worked as unit manager there. I loved it as we dealt with many geriatric patients for whom I have a passion.
My name is Thandiwe Linda, Thandi for short. I started working for The Village in September 1998. Besides working at The Village I am also a really good seamstress. I love reading, cooking and baking too.
Lendyll Govender (Pam)
I am Lendyll Govender, and I commenced at The Village on the 1st December 2023 as Office & Financial Administrator. I was previously employed at Tafta (Senior Executive Administrator) and Ima Care Centre (Admin/Accounts Clerk) and this experience has taught me to deal with different levels of people and caring for the elderly which installed me with confidence to persevere. My areas of strength are good personality, leadership, communication, patience and to embrace changes and challenges. “Aging Is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength”.
