Intellectual disability is a disability characterised by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and in adaptive behaviour, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. Intellectual disability signifies a reduced ability to understand new or complex information, learn new skills or cope independently. Supporting and enabling people with intellectual disabilities is a key focus in caring for them.
Established in 1980, Die Oord PV3 is a private aftercare facility where up to 180 intellectually impaired adults receive life long care. Situated in the North West Province on a farm at the foot of the Magaliesberg between Hartebeespoort Dam and Brits, Die Oord PV3 exercises a holistic approach in respect of the residents’ development, medical care as well as spiritual and emotional support.
Our mission is to provide full time residential care, including general health care by fully qualified nurses, and to ensure that residents function optimally and purposefully.
