In hospitals these days, patients are discharged as quickly as possible. Cape Care can provide post operative or respite care in the client’s own homes where recovery is often hastened by being in a familiar environment.
We currently work very successfully with private health care professionals and nursing sisters who are called in, should the care situation require medical intervention or supervision.
The Cape Care Agency provides a friendly and personal care service in Cape Town that 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. The choice to remain at home or not is every person’s right.
Not all clients require care night and day but do benefit from a carer on the premises 24hrs a day. For this reason we encourage clients to look at the option of having a carer live in the home as a wonderful support and presence. Live in care necessitates the carer having their own room and being able to get a fairly good night’s rest. However, they are always there if there is an emergency helping the client feel safe and secure.
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 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 support care.
