Welcome To Green Pastures Rest Home For The Elderly

Green Pastures Rest Home was founded in 1966 and has grown from its humble beginnings in the rural village of Durbanville, 30km from Cape Town, into a fully functional home for the elderly set amongst modern housing developments, now part of the Cape Town Metropole. Green Pastures Rest Home is a registered Non-Profit Organization that strives to meet all the requirements of local and national legislation pertaining to accommodating and caring for the elderly and is managed by a Board of Trustees under the auspices of the Christian Brethren Company.
