KHANYENI – Your Home Away From Home
Khanyeni means Place of Light and as its name implies it may well be the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ for some of our more elderly residents.

Staffing includes a Housekeeper, who will be responsible for meal preparation, cleaning of rooms and maintenance of the home as well as a full-time, qualified Nursing Sister/Administrator who will manage the caregiver staff supplied by Sani Carers, through the Eldercare HWSeta accredited caregiver training programme.
