Welcome to The Hills Retirement Community

Kloof Rest Home Association (Est. 1904)

The ‘Go-To’ People for Retirement



‘The Hills Retirement Community’ plays a vital role as the ‘go-to’ people in respect of retirement, in the upper Highway area. While our Rotarian linked provenance and pedigree of over 114 years of dedicated service, is undisputed; lesser known are the wide range of skills and services we are able to offer seniors.

Not only do we offer advice in search of well-appointed and affordable retirement accommodation; nor are assisted living and advanced care our sole salient strengths – indeed whilst our five estates and two care centres are central to our ethos of care – we are in fact bi-products of their real focus, which is holistic service to seniors.

Quality Care

We are constantly looking at ways in ensuring that all our residents and guests are constantly engaged.
