Amber Valley Retirement Village is situated on the boundary of Howick, overlooking dams, streams and the surrounding countryside, yet close to Howick’s full range of amenities.
Howick is a quaint rural town on the main N3 Johannesburg to Durban route, just 25 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, (an hour from Durban and the coast) or a similar distance from the uKahlamba Drakensburg mountain resorts and historic KwaZulu- Natal battlefields. Coming from Johannesburg, it is about 4 and a half hours drive. Howick is the kick-off point to the well celebrated Midlands Meander route, and well situated to access the province’s nature reserves and parks.
The development incorporates substantial open areas, which are allocated to the keeping of game. This adds the luxury of game walks and picnic spots within the bounds of Amber Valley. With no internal fences the game is free to move and graze along the many watercourses weaving through the village. The “eco” focus of Amber Valley encourages harmonious living with the surrounding natural environment.
Amber Valley Care Centre
The Amber Valley Care Centre is situated within the Amber Valley Retirement Village in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal. It offers 24-hour nursing care, on-site laundry facilities, tasty meals and a cheerful, friendly atmosphere.
The facility presently has 89 single rooms, with phones, supported by 3 lounges (with TV’s) and a large dining room and dementia unit. The setting is tranquil, with two secure, secluded gardens, whilst the facility is secure with electrically controlled outside doors. The facility itself is light and airy with wide corridors.
With the release of the Amber Lakes Development next door, the Amber Valley Care Centre is now effectively updated by Assisted Living Units to cater to the greater Amber residents (Amber Valley, Amber Ridge and Amber Lakes).
Residents are encouraged, where feasible, to become involved in activities in the Village e.g. playing bridge, attending concerts, and church services in the chapel which is right next door to the Centre. There is an on-site library and hairdresser too.Inddor
