At our Long Service Awards lunch, the HSFA Board and management team recognised the valuable contributions that several of our employees have made to our organisation. The HSFA staff is the core of our organisation and their passion for helping our residents is what makes a difference every day. The awards for 10 years went to Caroline Godfrey, Nombuyiselo Rawusana, Nokuthula Gana and Emma Bailey all from Support Centre and the awards for 15 years went to Freddie Williams from the Facilities Department as well as Xoliswa Fekade, Noluvo Mdemka and Daphne Claasen from the Support Centre. The awards for 20 years went to Lionel Wilson from Human Resources Department, Desire Booysen from Support Centre and Eureka Haefele from Independent Living. Sara Lintnaar from Mountview, who was awarded the certificate for 35 special years of service, gave a beautiful speech and Georgina Arone from the Support Centre, who made the 40-year milestone, was sadly absent but celebrated all the same! Thank you all for your loyalty and dedication to the wellbeing of our residents.
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.

The HSFA is a firm believer in skills and capability development of our own staff and of future carers, in order to offer the best service to our residents and the elderly community. The HSFA and OASIS Training Centre – PTY Ltd have collaborated allowing their training centre students an opportunity to do the practical part of their course at the HSFA. OASIS students were placed at the HSFA to job-shadow our carers, as part of their 6-week practical training, during their 3-month course. These students were allocated shifts, and job-shadowed and learnt practical caring with our HSFA carers. As part of the practical training, they had to learn specific caring tasks, as per their curriculum, in order to graduate. We are proud to laud the hardworking students of the first program with us at their graduation, and now welcome a new set of students in the second!
The HSFA staff are ahead of our game as usual and have got our booster shots for Covid-19! The staff were initially part of the Sisonke Covid vaccination trials over 6 months previously where we were fully vaccinated with J&J and now welcomed the booster shots to ensure extra protection and additional safety of our residents. #COVID19 #covidprevention
