Phenomenal women at the HSFA

Phenomenal women at the HSFA

The phenomenal women of Independent Living (both staff and residents) kindly donated gifts to those living in our HSFA Frail Care (some on subsidies and/or no family support). Woman’s month ended with a fun tea at Vonke House with some guest speakers!
On Woman’s day earlier in the month both the Assisted Living and Frail Care units enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by GERATEC to be reminded of just special women are! Thank you all!
HSFA skills development

HSFA skills development

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin
The HSFA believes in upskilling our staff. Over the past year our staff have been involved in a range of development training courses and encouraged to apply their learnings to our everyday work functions. The improvement in individual and group work performances in turn betters our service offering and level of care to our residents. In one year, we had 71 different courses which had 499 attendees, as well as 73 induction and orientation courses. Highlights were the Occupational Health and Safety courses including Fire and Emergency, First Aid and Health and Safety Warden courses as well as Home Management and Dementia training programmes. Computer training in our new computer training centre allowed ISimplifi to supercharge our staff with a range of computer and online skills. Thank you to our Management team for these incredible opportunities, and thank you HR for arranging these special awards ceremonies to make us all proud!
“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”
– Bill Gates
Drama Workshops for HSFA

Drama Workshops for HSFA

March and April were months full of drama at the HSFA! So when our residents were saying “Break a Leg” this did not mean that next step meant a hip or knee replacement, but rather a moment of glory on stage!!
All units (Independent Living, Assisted Living and Frailcare) were invited to join drama workshops as presented by two lovely ladies, Coleen van Staden and Celia Musikanth from Circle Productions Cape Town . Howls of laughter and impassioned shouting was heard in the halls of the units with our residents acting out Shakespeare’s most rude lines (sometimes translated into Afrikaans!) Movement and mime were practiced, and character sketches as well as poems were rolled out. Thank you to the lovely drama teachers who showed us how many theatrical players, tuneful singers, and drama queens we actually have at the HSFA! Watch this space – HSFA HAS TALENT will be back with a vengeance!
