Carefree retirement living in beautiful surroundings

Retirement is now about finding a community in which to enjoy an independent lifestyle in safe and secure surroundings.

Rand Aid Association offers accommodation in a variety of independent-living retirement villages and frail care centres. Three life-right villages, one that offers rental accommodation, and two frail care centres, are all situated a few minutes’ drive of Greenstone Shopping Centre, just off the Modderfontein off-ramp of the N3.

All accommodation choices offer beautiful grounds; well-maintained buildings; security, including access control; and a range of services and amenities that promote carefree living and the well-being of residents. Three of the villages flank the Jukskei River.
