Woodside Special Care Centre

Woodside Special Care Centre is a residential home providing 24 hour care for 80 profoundly mentally and physically challenged residents.

Woodside was started in 1976 by a group of concerned parents who could not provide proper care for their children and required assistance from those who had the necessary expertise and experience. A few willing partners helped them launch the home in Rondebosch East in Cape Town. Over the past almost 40 years the organization has grown from strength to strength providing a range of services to improve the levels of comfort and responsiveness of residents as well as improving their quality of life through nurse care, physiotherapy, occupational and speech therapies.
