HSFA Supports Helderberg Hospice at Golf Day

Golf Days that support a worth cause is a win-win situation – a good way to support a charity and a great way to end a week! Some of the Exec team and Board of the HSFA played in a four-ball at the recent Helderberg Hospice Golf Day! Thank you Helderberg Hospice for a well-organised event and we were delighted to support with a water and drinks stand for the golfers. Watch this space for the next Golf Day in support of the HSFA (Helderberg Society For the Aged) on 7th Oct 2022.

Another touching moment is seeing the residents of Frail Care opening and reading Christmas cards written and designed by the Beaumont Primary School pupils. The scholars kindly made over 1000 handcrafted Christmas cards for the residents of the HSFA. Once again, they also donated boxes of biscuits. Thanks goes to the children as well as the inspiring headmaster Mr Gordon Reddell and to the lovely Mrs Dez Struwig. See below Hanlie Theron, Frail Care Unit Manager of the HSFA receiving the donations. #kindnesstoelderly #christmas2021

What a way to get up and moving ‚Äď doing our very own Olympic event activities at the HSFA! The residents of both Assisted Living Units Robari and Silver Oaks Lodge, both Frail Care units Mountview and Support Centre as well as the Independent Living Units Vonke and Swannack all participated in the challenges! Medals were awarded in select events like horse-shoe toss, boules, ringboard throw, treasure hunt, bingo, egg in lap race and relay! Well done to all the winners who stood proudly on the podium with their shiny medals! The menu of the day as served by Geratec included Greek Beef Kofta Kebab with Tzatziki, Greek Salad and delicious Galaktoboureko. Thank you to all the HSFA staff who went the extra mile to dress up like Greek Gods and Goddesses and make these events a great success. You are ALL champions in our eyes!

A story for International Day of Older Persons

A story for International Day of Older Persons

Today I painted a new residents nails at work and as we were going over colors, she mentioned she wanted clear. The only thought that came to my mind was “CLEAR?! That’s no fun.” I asked her why she wanted clear and she said, “My hands are ugly, I don’t want to draw attention to them.” I then carefully responded with, “Your hands tell the story of your life. They tell the story of love, of care and adventure. These hands have touched and held things that most people can only wish to one day.” And with that, she went with the color pink for her nails. Sometimes what we are so insecure with, others find beauty in. ūüíĖ Words and photo Credit Brandalyn Mae Porter.
Today is so go the extra mile today to make our wise ones feel extra special, and listen to their story of their life. International Day of Older Persons #InternationalDayOfOlderPersons
