TAKING CARE OF YOUR PARENTS - ASSISTANCE FROM A CARER IN CAPE TOWN
Often elderly or disabled Clients are daunted by the prospect of travelling alone and so miss out on wonderful opportunities. We offer care in hotels / holiday accommodation as well as Carers who can accompany Clients on their travels.
The Cape Care Agency provides a friendly and personal care for your parents that enables the elderly or disabled client to continue to live independently in his/her own home. Taking care of your parents is your privilege.
Depending on the individual needs and health needs of the client (your parents), 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.
The security of your elderly parents at their homes in the Southern Suburbs of Cape town is our primary focus at the moment.

In the modern day hospital patients are discharged as soon as possible. We can provide post operative or respite care in the Clients 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.
Sometimes the choice to live in an institution is the right one. However many health care facilities today are under staffed and unable to give attention to the specific needs of the client. Our Carers work very successfully in these facilities providing one on one care and giving the client the assistance they need. The service we provide currently ranges from driving a client to an appointment and companionship to 24 hour care.
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 in tact. Our Carers have been trained to look at care holistically in the Clients own environment. Duties could include walking the dog, cooking, tidying the linen cupboard, receiving guests etc. This enables the Client to retain their independence and continue to live according to their own rules.
We believe that this is everyone’s rite.
