We also aim to equip our Centre with the necessary materials and equipment which will enable our staff to operate at a high level of professionalism in all spheres of the services we offer to our residents.
Woodside is a place of encouragement, inspiration and constant training for its dedicated staff. With continuous training the staff will be able to provide up-to-date care and stimulation to our residents.
