Set in verdant and peaceful surroundings at 2 Park Lane, Blairgowrie, Randburg, a recently upgraded complex can be found in which accommodation is available for the independent retiree as well as those who need full-time care.

Ekklesia Park Home was founded on 19 October 1968 as a project of and under the auspices of the Dutch Reformed Church. After more than 45 years it still functions under Tutela, the service arm of this church as part of the services for the elderly and other persons in need of care.

The vision of the Home is to offer sustainable, affordable, dynamic and need-based care of the aged to and by the community.

A holistic approach true to the Christian principles for the care of the aged is followed, implying that the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual are taken into account.


During the upgrading of the Home a landscape firm completely revamped and replanted the garden. The on-site borehole made it possible to transform the garden completely even through a serious period of drought.

Beautifully laid out pathways offer the opportunity for residents to walk (with our without assistance) in secure surroundings to remain mobile and fit. Benches have been placed at strategic places on the well-maintained lawns where residents can rest and also watch the quite abundant bird life.
