Woodside Sanctuary

Since our inception in 1955, Woodside Sanctuary has worked towards building an infrastructure, which serves as a place of safety for families who have children requiring specialized care and are unable to remain within the family unit.

The main aim of the Sanctuary is to provide excellence in holistic care and stimulation for profoundly intellectually disabled children and adults, offering help and hope to discouraged families, as well as love and care.

Today, Woodside Sanctuary provides full-time residential care to 86 persons with severe/profound intellectual disability. Our approach continues to be holistic in nature and incorporates 24 hour a day nursing care, various forms of therapy, residential care (full-time and respite) as well as rehabilitation and stimulation programmes.
