HOME CARE

Home care enables the frail, elderly or disabled client to continue to live independently in his/her own home.
Depending on the individual needs and health needs of the client, care may be provided on a full or part time basis ie. from 3 hours to 24 hours per day.
Clients and carers are assessed regularly and both receive ongoing support.

CARE
AT HOME

Remaining in one’s own home with care enables life to go on as normal, despite incapacity or frailty. Beloved pets, visitors, memorabilia all remain familiar and intact. Our carers have been trained to look at care holistically in the client’s own environment.

POST OPERATIVE/
RESPITE CARE

In hospitals today, patients are discharged as soon as possible. We can provide post operative or respite care in the client’s own homes where recovery is often hastened by being in a familiar environment.

ASSISTANCE
WHILE TRAVELLING

Often elderly or disabled clients are daunted by the prospect of travelling alone and  miss out on wonderful opportunities. We offer care in hotels and holiday accommodation in Cape Town as well as carers who can accompany clients on their travels.

HOLISTIC CARE

WHAT WE OFFER

Remaining in one’s own home means that life goes on as normal despite incapacity or frailty. Beloved pets, visitors, memorabilia all remain familiar and intact. Our carers have been trained to look at care holistically in the client’s own environment. Duties range from helping with bathing and personal hygiene and pressure care to walking the dog, cooking and tidying the linen cupboard, receiving guests etc. This enables the client to retain their independence and continue to be in control of their own environment.
We believe that this is everyone’s right.

Sometimes the choice to live in an institution is the right one. However, many health care facilities today are understaffed and unable to give attention to the individual needs of the client. Our carers work very successfully in these facilities, providing one on one care and giving the clients the assistance needed. The services we provide currently range from driving a client to an appointment, companionship to full time care day and night.

In the modern day hospital patients are discharged as soon as possible. We can provide postoperative or respite care in the client’s own home, where recovery is often hastened by being in a familiar environment.
We currently work very successfully with community nursing sisters who are called in should the care situation require medical intervention or supervision

Often frail, elderly or disabled clients are daunted by the prospect of travelling alone and miss out on wonderful opportunities. We offer care in hotels / holiday accommodation as well as providing carers who can accompany Clients on their travels.

Should a client prefer to employ a private carer and not work through an agency, Cape Care offers a private recruitment division. Clients then have the option of selecting their own private carer from our pool of carefully screened, reliable carers. Our experience and support in all aspects of recruiting and managing staff will facilitate your successful employment of a carer.
