The Somerset West community really ‘came to the party’ to support our HSFA Garden Village seniors! A big thank you Rotary Club of Somerset West for sponsoring the delicious Christmas meal beautifully prepared and presented by GERATEC. Also thank you to Beaumont Primary School and the team of donors from “Oldies for Oldies” for donating the presents which were gratefully received by the seniors of Garden Village. Thank you Shireen, Rika, Carmelee, Noleen, Nellie Adri and team for the continued dedication to the wellbeing of this special HSFA community.

Beaumont Primary gives HSFA cuddles

Beaumont Primary gives HSFA cuddles

Beaumont Primary School have always had a special relationship with the HSFA and frequent our halls singing in concerts or providing us with flowers. Beaumont provided the HSFA beautiful Christmas Gift Bags full of toiletries and treats. All 620 residents also received BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED cards from the pupils of Beaumont! The gift bags were delivered to those residents who have no family and/or financial support, and the recipients were very grateful for this generosity. Thank you to all the Beaumont families, the Head Boys and Head Girls (Nathan Nissen, Jamie Wege, Klara Korber and Nina van Reenen) as well as Dez Struwig who manages the programme and Dwain Brown, the new Headmaster of Beaumont Primary. It is hard to describe the delight on the faces of our residents who received the gifts. Thank you!

Pet as Therapy

Pet as Therapy

It is so moving to watch our resident’s faces light up as a beautiful dog comes with a waggy tail through the lounges! A lovely volunteer Danette Viljoen and her gentle furry beauty named Rue, from Pets As Therapy visited our Frail and Dementia Units. Those residents (obviously having happy memories of owing their own dogs in their lives), showed so much excitement and joy, cuddling or stroking the dog’s soft fur; some from a deep motionless sleep, awoke with a smile and movement! One must never forget that reminders of happy life memories is so important to the frail aged.
