Elizabeth Knox Home and Hospital

We are a hospital and resthome catering to 200 plus seniors and young disabled. We are based on the Eden concept of care - The core concept of the Eden Alternative is simple: Care environments are habitats for human beings that should promote health, well being and growth rather than facilities where the frail and elderly stagnate and decline.
