We keep watch for sudden changes in health in older people, which can be triggered by a fall, stroke, changes in medication or minor infections, which can in turn lead to frailty.
We assist older or frail people as they have trouble walking, climbing stairs, getting up from chairs, and also in-and-out of bed. Weakening eyesight and a reduced muscle mass also contribute to frailness.
Daily assistance includes professional and safe administration of all medications, help getting out of bed and getting dressed, mobility throughout the day, and encouragement with eating and drinking.
Ensuring all our residents are comfortable and happy is our priority, as well as making them feel like they’re ‘home’.
Daily activities and numerous fun events are organised onsite and offsite (outside excursions not permitted during the Covid pandemic), which all help with giving our residents a better sense of independence and normality.
Well-being is a big priority at the Hospicare Group.
We make every effort to keep residents safe, secure warm and welcome. This also applies to family and friends when visiting their loved ones.
The facility is designed to enhance the lives of our residents. It is located within a retirement village and is set in beautiful outside areas, including patios and gardens. Visiting areas are perfect for both residents and friends and family, to feel comfortable and relaxed.
At Stellenbosch we have three sections of care:
The ground floor consists of Private Assisted Living Apartments/Units with ensuite bathrooms and kitchen facilities. These are ideal for single people or couples, who want to live in a frail care / retirement village environment – but also still want to retain their independence partly or completely. We cater to their needs in terms of applicable services such as daily nursing / care worker visits, all meals, laundry etc. Rental of these apartments/units start from R25,000 per month. There is a non-refundable entry fee of R5 000 per person.
Our first floor consists of wards for our very frail residents, as well as single units for residents needing daily care who prefer being in a single unit. There are care workers stationed on this floor with a call button system in place. The cost for the wards start from R15 500 per month and the rental of the single units from R20 800 per month. These rates include 3 meals per day, personal care, medical assistance from our nursing staff, laundry services, wi-fi services and entertainment. There is also a non-refundable entry fee of R5 000 per person.
Our dedicated staff members are kind and passionate, and we are proud to comply to the highest COVID-19 safety protocol.
