Our Portfolio

Currently we have 3 houses in the village of Sedgefield. 2 are rented and the 3rd house is rent free in lieu of the Landlord's reletive who is a resident at TLC. Our first house was opened in May 2013. The 2nd house in December 2013 and the third house opened in May 2014. We have a total of 22 residents in 24 hour care, and a waiting list that keeps growing. It is clear that there is an urgent need for Alzheimer care for people who cannot afford the high cost of private care. A 4th and 5th house is desperately needed, but we have a dream. A residential village for Alzheimer sufferer's similar to Hogeweg where folk of a similar outlook live together.
Our only drawback is lack of finances. It is a BIG VISION, which will cost from R50 000 000.00 upwards to see into fruition, but we are confident that this will become a reality.

The Future


The Living Cornerstone's long term plan is to be on a farm. This will be divided into 3 sections and will be built up in 3 phases.
