In respect of the registration for the COVID-19 vaccine, residents are advised that it is their responsibility, however, if you require any assistance, please feel free to contact the office. Registration requirements are ID Number, Medical Aid details and Cellphone Number.

It has been decided to remove the isolation period for incoming residents and those who choose to leave the premises overnight. In the event of a new COVID positive case at the Caister then the restrictions will revert back to 10 days quarantine.

The guest suites will now be available for family and friends to visit with the strict understanding that the wearing of face masks is compulsory in all public areas.

Tuesday fellowship has been re-introduced and all residents are welcome to attend.

Residents are reminded of the House Rules in respect of the removal of food from the dining room which is restricted to the morning fruit and Sunday evening buffet. All other food requirements are to be ordered via reception to be delivered to the individual apartments where the R4.00 tray charge will be levied even if the tray is to be left at reception.

Crockery and glassware that has been removed from the dining room need to be returned immediately as it is affecting the service due to a shortage of plates and glasses.

A number of residents who requested the flu vaccine have yet to have it administered and are advised to contact the clinic to be vaccinated. Residents who have requested the flu vaccine and have subsequently changed their minds will still be charged as only the requested number of doses was purchased and cannot be returned.

Due to the over-subscriptions of residents who participate in the weekly beach outings, residents will also be transported to the beach on Mondays. This facility is only available for those who are unable to go to the beach on Thursdays as the bus is full.
