But we are an ageing population and with increased age come certain problems. We might not want to admit it but in time all of us will need help. For some of us the answer is an assisted living facility, an old age home. For others this could be financially out of the question. And for others it’s a simple, even stubborn, determination not to leave the comfort and familiarity of one’s much-loved home.
If that’s you, or your parents, there is a solution: a home carer.
The trouble is that such carers are few and far between.
Coastal Kindness might just be able to help!
We are organising a practical course in basic home care. If, for instance, you already have someone you know and trust working in your home, with some additional training you would have your home carer!
The course consists of five sessions held on Thursday afternoons from 14:00 – 16:30 and will focus on daily home care for the elderly or infirm.
The instructors will be experts in their fields and the team leader will be Anette Rex, a Professional Nurse, trained in General Nursing, Midwifery and Palliative Care. She is also a Hospice consultant. Who better?
Notes will be given at each session and a certificate of attendance (not SETA accredited) will be issued on completion of the course.
Attendees should have a reasonably good command of English.
The first course commences on Thursday 6 July. The cost is R500 per person and we can accommodate a maximum of 15 people.
Coastal Kindness – caring for you!
