Don’t Forget To Remember Me

Brigadoon Village is South Africa’s first Dementia reminiscence village, situated on a two-hectare seafront estate in Betty’s Bay.

The staff at Brigadoon Village are passionate about the people whose lives they have the honour of enhancing, and only the best care is given around the clock. There are various care options that are styled to suit the stage of your loved one’s Dementia that includes assisted living, 24-hour specialised care, respite care and hospice care.
