Our Home

We have adult residents of all races living in our 5 houses and accept adults from 18 years onwards.

We can accommodate a wide range of intellectual impairments and we place each individual according to their specific needs and abilities.

We offer extra care in our assisted living Combrinck House, where the staff to resident ratio is much higher than in other houses.

The Home has a full-time Occupational Therapist who plans and supervises all activities and the residents also enjoy normal leisure time. We are committed to our multi-racial, loving and caring environment, which has made us a leading Home for intellectually impaired adults in South Africa.

Our Accomodation

Our Grounds

Sunfield Home is situated on 22 hectares of sloping hillside in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Our residents enjoy beautifully grassed areas shaded by large trees, which are maintained by our committed Estate staff.

We have several sports facilities where our residents can participate in soccer, soft ball, swimming, games and more. There is a heated swimming pool, two bocce courts, as well as a putt-putt course, which the residents can enjoy.

A group of enthusiastic residents known as the “Green Gang” takes great pride in working in the vegetable tunnel.

Another feature of our grounds is our Chapel, which is an integral part of the life of residents at our home.
