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.
We currently work very successfully with private healthcare professionals and nursing sisters who are called in, should the care situation require medical intervention or supervision.
Cape Care provides a friendly and personal care service 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 of whether 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 healthcare 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.
