Wilgerus was the brainchild of the community in the early 80’s when the need to create a safe environment for the elderly became apparent. With the help of the local community Wilgerus opened its door to the public 1 May 1987 on the banks of the Wilger River.
During this time the operations and functionality of Wilgerus was driven and managed by the community and congregations in 2007 it was decided to seek professional assistance regarding structure, strategies and managerial and business skills and that is when Wilgerus Care Services became part of the Residentia stable.
Wilgerus is still very part of the local community and most of the individuals involved at Wilgerus are still part of the team and some are even Residents.
