Greetings, we are a group of very happy residents of various ages, who would like to invite and welcome you here to dwell with us if you feel the time has come to retire and relax from cooking, washing dishes and mowing the lawn! Kenwyn offer a lovely selection of rooms and we live a wonderful happy and healthy life here with delicious meals prepared for us three times a day, consisting of varied menus by our excellent Caterers. All our Staff, from Management to Laundry, Cleaners, Waitresses, Handyman and Gardener, are extremely helpful, efficient and caring. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We have a Residents Committee as well who see to the wellbeing of each and every Resident and also liaise on our behalf with PADCA, Management and our Caterers. We have a Kombi provided by PADCA, which takes us for a morning out and shopping at the Malls. Please come and join us, come and visit and have a cup of tea or coffee with us; we would love to meet you.
