Sub Economic Assisted Living

Sub-Economic Sheltered Accommodation

Cuylerholme Rooms is a sheltered living facility with 54 furnished and serviced rooms for the aged who need supervised care. The majority of the 64 residents are sub-economic pensioners. Some receive treatment for psychiatric conditions, some have little or no family support. A midday meal is provided and residents are automatically members of the Cuylerholme Service Centre. This housing facility is unsubsidised and the only one of its kind in Port Elizabeth. Residents are provided with a breakfast every morning proviced the ingredients for these breakfasts are donated. Residents who cannot make it to the kitchen for breakfast are assisted by the sponsored Home Based Carer.

Cuylerholme Rooms is unsubsidised so donations and sponsorships are actively sought and there are many ways in which you can lend a helping hand.

We are actively seeking assistance with the refurbishing of the external façade of the property.  We require in excess of R500 000 for this project.  The facility houses 5 resident kitchens used by the elderly residents and home based carer to prepare their light suppers. Several Churches and Ladies groups provide ingredients such as cup of soup and two minute noodles for this purpose. Kitchen utensils and items such as kettles, mini stoves, fridges often need replacing due to heavy useage.

To find out how you, your church group, school, or company can assist with this project contact our Pro/Fundraiser on 041 368 8434 or e-mail
