Where it all began…

The original concept of Altersheim Port Natal was first initiated and developed in New Germany by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of South Africa to provide care for the elderly. Founded on a dedicated Christian ethos, Altersheim Port Natal is a well-managed retirement village, affectionately known by its residents as “APN”.

Affordable Living

APN offers a warm community lifestyle, beautiful facilities, and comfortable cottages. A fully operational kitchen and dining room, offering a wholesome daily meal. The cost of this meal is included in the levy.

Life Rights

Life rights ensures good care in an assisted living facility for the frail – at no cost. Altersheim Port Natal (New Germany) was our first Retirement Home development and has been in operation for 38 years. This Home is a registered Non-profit Organisation. All life right holders who have moved into the Care Centre have had free care. Based on this, in terms of the life right contract that will be concluded on sale of a life right, we will be able to provide such care as the Executive Committee is able to provide. APN Retirement Village (Hillcrest) will be registered under the same non-profit Organisation number as Altersheim Port Natal (New Germany).
