The Deans Shelter was established by the then Dean of Johannesburg to care for veterans of the second world war, who had serious difficulties in their efforts to rehabilitate and adjust to civilian life. Having served its purpose as the Deans Shelter, Deansgate as it is known today became a home for the elderly.
The home is situated in Craighall Park, close to the historical suburb of Parkhurst. It borders on the beautiful Delta Park and is close to the Braamfontein spruit.
