Helderberg Society for the Aged

WELCOME TO HELDERBERG SOCIETY FOR THE AGED

Since its inception in 1958, The Helderberg Society for the Aged has grown from a small Rotary initiative to providing retirement solutions & caring for over 660 residents. Our foundation of care rests on our Four Pillars of Service: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Frail Care and Clinical Services.

SERVICES AND FACILITIES

INDEPENDENT LIVING

Developed for senior citizens who still enjoy an active and social lifestyle, but who require safe and secure accommodation, with easy access to community amenities and services.

ASSISTED LIVING

These units are for senior citizens who still enjoy their independence, 
but who doesn’t want the responsibility of household chores.

FRAIL CARE

Developed for the families of those older persons who find themselves in the fragile stage of life- requiring 24-hour care and supervision in a way that will help them retain their dignity.

CLINICAL SERVICES

This service offers caring and cleaning  to HSFA residents at our Independent and Assisted Living Units.

SERVICE CENTRES

This is a community based care programme where older persons in the  community can receive organised programmes and activities.

WHAT OUR RESIDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES SAY

Dear Juanne, Thank you very much for making our Mother’s day so very special yesterday. Mum had the most marvellous 95th birthday  t Robari. We really appreciated the wonderful photographs that you forwarded to us of the tea party. The photo account was so special and meaningful to us especially as we could not actually be there. We loved the video of the staff singing to the birthday girl! Mum said the cake was absolutely delicious, our compliments and thanks to the chef please! The visit at the gate was lovely too, as we could get a good look at Mum and although wobbly,  she does seem to be getting stronger by the day. Thank you to you and your wonderful team for the amazing job that you do for the residents of Robari. With love, appreciation and warm wishes.

I would just like to send a heart felt thank you to you and your team for holding down the fort so wonderfully and doing your best in extremely difficult circumstances. Covid-19 is an unexpected problem that we are all dealing with, and the team at Silver Oaks has a tremendous responsibility, both to keep yourselves and your families safe, as well as the residents. Often under very trying circumstances, I am sure. One of your residents, my mother, Mrs Rita le Roux, keeps me up to date with the relevant Covid-19 protocol changes within Silver Oaks, and general news as it occurs, and her praise for your management of the residence is unremitting. Please also pass on her and our thanks as a family to your staff, who are doing an admirable job and have all been so self-sacrificing, since we all went under lockdown. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and we are very grateful our mother is in such good hands, and being taken care of so well. Nadine Mueller 6 Aug 2020

 

Hi Ju-Anne, ek en Derek wil net spesiaal dankie se vir jou aanbeveling na dr Danie van Aswegen. Dankie dat jy ‘n afspraak gereel het dat hy my Ma kon ontmoet en vroegtydig vir haar ‘n leer kon oopmaak voordat sy siek geword het. Ons is baie gelukkig met hom. Dankie ook dat jy gereel het dat haar voorskrifte oorgeplaas word na Circle Apteek wat haar medisyne kom aflewer. Baie dankie ook vir jou reelings sodat Christan haar rekenings kry en kan betaal. Christan het ook sy korrespondensie met jou oor die reelings t.o.v. die Power of Attorney aangestuur na my toe. Baie dankie vir jou behulpsaamheid en geduld en vriendelikheid ten spyte van die baie keer wat hy moes terugkom na jou toe omdat die Bank nog eise gestel het!! Ek wil net he dat jy weet dat ons jou toewyding en harde werk raaksien en baie waardeer.  Baie dankie ook vir jou en die ander personeel se opoffering om maande lank op die perseel te gebly het om na die inwoners te kyk. Ons besef dat julle skielik en ongevraagd ‘n groot verantwoordelik op julle skouers gekry het en onder baie stres is. Ons bid dat die Here julle sal seen en die wysheid en krag sal gee wat julle nodig het om deur hierdie krisistyd te kan kom. Ons bid vir jou en die ander personeel, asook die inwoners. Vriendelike groete, Petro en Derek Erasmus  July 2020

 

Thanks Patricia. I am so impressed with you, your staff and HSFA as an organisation – I am so in awe of the huge sacrifices you are all making. The meeting was so well run and the social distancing and sanitising, etc was so well adhered to – I appreciate that you all had our safety in mind too.  Honestly, getting my dad into the organisation was the best thing I could have done. All those years ago when I attended the first information meeting at Vonke, and I literally only found out about the meeting that same morning, I just felt that this place would work for my dad and I was right.  I cannot thank you enough.

Beste Rika. Vandag het ek die voorreg gehad om vir Alta, en almal van julle wat soveel opoffer vir die inwoners van HSFA, persoonlik dankie te sê namens my en my drie kinders. My gemoed het volgeskiet, beseffende dat haar eie kinders definitief baie meer bekommerd moet wees, as myne ?… My innige hartewense
vir elke dag.
