Respite – Rehabilitation – Rejuvenation

About Butterfly Haven
Our spacious, privately-owned haven in Ruimsig, Roodepoort, bordering the Roodepoort Butterfly Reserve, is a facility for children and adults with profound physical and intellectual disabilities such as cerebral palsy.

Why Choose Butterfly Haven?
Intimate, Private Environment
Butterfly Haven is located in a tranquil neighbourhood. The facility operates from a large, spacious building on a hectare of land, so it never feels crowded and each resident is treated personally, lovingly and according to their individual requirements.
On-site Treatment and Care
Residents do not need to be transported to receive the care and rehabilitation they need. Our on-site qualified and experienced Healthcare Workers ensure that our residents enjoy the stability and comfort of being treated professionally in familiar surroundings. What’s more, we can accommodate carers or family members for a limited period on-site if required and by request.
Butterfly Haven is just a 15min drive from the N1 and 5min from the N14/R28, giving easy access from northern, central, western and southern suburbs. Butterfly Haven is in close proximity to Netcare Pinehaven Hospital, Netcare Krugersdorp Hospital, Life Wilgeheuwel Hospital and Life Flora Hospital. Our spacious grounds, adjacent to the Ruimsig Entomological Reserve, ensure that residents have full access to the natural peace and healing of nature and the outdoors.
