Welcome to alcaricare

your home away from home
Alcaricare is a private based frail and palliative center located in Lyttelton Manor, Centurion. Alcaricare has a tranquil setting offering residents “a home away from home” environment. We ensure a warm and comfortable stay. We have dedicated staff, 24hrs care, a qualified staff nurse, an ambulance service on call, a doctor who makes house calls and professionals who we are acquainted with. Unitas  is situated approximately 3 km from us. We have a double, several single rooms and a frail care area.


In 2000 Alida, the owner of Alcaricare; realised that there was a gap in the medical market for people to be able to recover completely from an illness after her mother had a heart attack. Her dream was 7 years in the making, when she finally opened the doors of Alcaricare in January 2009. In 2014, Alida was able to purchase a home for Alcaricare. Alida has Staff Nursing experience and she has staff who assist her with administration, domestic work and care giving.
