Covid and Health Update

Update 45: 30/11/2022
Unfortunately we have an outbreak in Cumberland House, at present affecting LadySmith wing.
This wing is in lockdown for the next 7 days at least.
In the interests of resident well being we are allowing visitors to LadySmith wing in full PPE and with a negative RAT test.
The rest of Cumberland House is NOT in lockdown, and no restrictions apply to other areas.
Please see reception for details on site.

Update 44: 17/11/2022
Due to the rise of Covid cases in our region and the wearing of masks being re-introduced, our reception areas must be manned by staff to assist visitors and also monitor that everyone entering our facilities is wearing an appropriate mask. Because of this it is necessary to revert to the visiting hours in place during most of the year, which are as follows:

Monday - Thursday: 9:00am to 5:00pm
Friday: 9:00am to 4:30pm
Weekends and Public Holidays: 9:00am to 3:00pm

All visitors are required to sign in at reception using the zipline machines and wear your visitor badge. Masks are required to be worn at all times by visitors including children 10 years and older. Cloth masks are not to be worn and if you are not able to wear a mask, we will supply a face shield.

Thank you everyone for your cooperation, it is disappointing to have to do this when only recently we were so pleased to resume full opening hours.

Good Shepherd Lodge Limited requests that you monitor this message on our website for updates as the conditions of entry may change.

About Us

I moved to a villa at Kerrisdale Gardens nearly 6 years ago, and can honestly say it’s the best decision I could have made.

Why would anyone want to spend their twilight years living on their own, whether they be on their own, or fortunate enough to both be together?

I’ve been happily residing independently in an apartment at Kerrisdale Gardens for nearly 6 years. Moving to this facility has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
