Officially opened 35 years ago on Saturday 27 April 1985, the Glenhaven Retirement Centre was planned and founded by the Central Baptist Church Welfare Association (CEBACWAS). Glenhaven lies on the border of Faerie Glen and Garsfontein in Pretoria East, and is close to amenities such as the Faerie Glen medical centre, the post office, police station and five major shopping areas.
Glenhaven offers tranquil, high quality and affordable
accommodation in a variety of housing facilities including
one, two- or three-bedroom cottages and a selection of flats.
Units are rented and sold on a
without a profiteering motive.
If you want to retire in a safe, convenient and comfortable environment where your total well-being is taken into consideration - Glenhaven is the place for you!
Independent Living refers to residents that are able to fully take care of themselves and perform daily living activities without any assistance. The majority of residents at Glenhaven live independently.
However, Assisted Living is available to residents that require help with daily living activities. Glenhaven residents have preferential access to the Frail Care unit and assisted living can also be provided in their own homes.
Services provided will be determined by a DQ Assessment (Dependency Questionnaire), as required by law under the Older Persons Act, that assesses the condition and specific needs of each resident. Services can include (but are not limited to); bathing, bed-making, accompanying residents to meals, church services, scheduled doctor's appointments etc., cleaning services, laundry services, medication management, blood pressure measurements, medical visits, limited housekeeping tasks, etc.
Four sick bay beds are also reserved in the Frail Care Unit for Glenhaven and Haven Village residents.
Glenhaven offers integrated community living with a range of social activities to become a part of, such as:
A range of accommodation, including bachelor and one bedroom flats, that
can be rented directly from CEBACWAS, as well as one to three Bedroom
cottages that are sold on a
life rights basis (meaning that you
purchase the right to live in a unit for the remainder of your, or your
spouses, life) are available at this Retirement Centre. Units are
North-facing and ground-floor units offer a garden and patio.
When purchasing life rights, unit prices may vary between R570 000 and R1 350 000 depending on the unit size.
Cottage rental opportunities (one to three bedroom cottages) also become available from time to time through Life Right Owners (adhering to the CEBACWAS regulations).
All units at Glenhaven Retirement Centre are required to uphold a certain standard before being sold or rented out. As such, when you purchase a unit at Glenhaven, depending on how recent it was upgraded, the unit will be upgraded to our specifications. You will have your own choice of tiles and/or carpets, paint colours etc. You can create your perfect home for all the comfort you need in your retirement.
CEBACWAS Rental Units are also upgraded to our standard – providing you with a modern, clean-cut design perfect for every-day living!
When rental units are still in a good condition when occupation changes, units will be refurbished to maintain the CEBACWAS standard.

A Dependency Questionnaire Assessment (DQ) is an assessment, required by law under the Older Persons Act, done by our Matron, to determine whether you are capable of taking care of yourself, or to determine the amount and type of care residents require.
The Assessment consists of a few tasks and tests to determine your capabilities. All residents moving into our Retirement Centres are required to complete a DQ Assessment before occupation can commence.
Getting a Garage or Carport will depend on whether you're planning to purchase or rent a unit. When purchasing a cottage, a garage or carport has likely already been allocated to the unit and will be sold along with the unit.
However, if you'd like to rent a CEBACWAS unit, renting a garage or carport is also possible, depending on availability. Should no garage or carport be available, you can still park your vehicle safely within the centre guarded by 24-hour security.
All residents, their visitors, and Service Members have the option to purchase meal tickets (apart from the 8 compulsory meals for all new residents), or to add meals to their Glenhaven Account. However, in order to attend a meal in the dining hall, meal bookings have to be made in advance.
Meals must be booked at Main Reception by 10:00, one day in advance. Meals for weekends and Mondays must be booked by 12:00 on a Friday.
Lunch is served in the dining hall; however, you have the option to book for Room Service at an extra cost.
