Accommodation

Parents or family members usually buy usufruct in a residential unit. Accommodation options range from flats to single rooms, with most of the latter featuring a small en suite bathroom. Provision is also made for married couples. Three meals per day, based on dietary preferences, are enjoyed in the communal dining room.

For information on admission requirements, rates, house rules and the application process, kindly contact Horizon House.

Recreation

Socialising, sports and outdoor activities form an important part of the residents’ daily lives. Friends and family are encouraged to visit the residents and to take them on outings. To do this, they need to obtain prior written permission from the parents or family and make the necessary arrangements with Horizon House.

  • Sport: The centre is built on a plot of 12,5 hectares, and it has a swimming pool and beautiful gardens with walk-ways. Residents participate in swimming, athletics, line dancing, bocce (mini bowling), hiking, cycling and other types of sports.
  • Other pastimes: Each residence has a lounge where residents can watch TV and relax. They also have communal pool tables. Favourite activities include dancing, music, singing, reading and playing pool. Birthdays are high on the social calendar. We also encourage relaxed and creative personal recreation.
  • Spiritual support: Spiritual growth is encouraged by means of a weekly coffee bar and church involvement provided by various religious denominations.
  • Outdoor activities: We arrange outings in nature and we help residents to attend concerts and other events.
