What duties do the nursing staff perform?
Along with basic nursing duties, our nurses also assist with mobility, administering of medication, monitoring blood pressure and glucose levels and providing oxygen therapy. Housekeeping staff will assist with preparing food, making the bed, washing dishes and washing clothes. All in all, patients are fully cared for by our trained professional staff.
What training do frail care staff have?
Our nursing staff are all highly trained. At a minimum, our nurses hold a South African Nursing Council (SANC) accreditation.
Ongoing training of staff at the centre ensures that all members operate to the highest standards while maintaining a passion for care and understanding of individual needs.

The cooks are experienced and creative and cater to individual tastes and special dietary requirements. Meals can also be provided in homes.
Can I opt for in-home care?
