Recently our residents from our Assisted Living Units, Silver Oaks Lodge and Robari Lodge were visited by two talented musicians Kai Lehmensiek and Alex Moon who gave a magical piano performance. The concert was enjoyed by all! Thank you Lai and Alex. 

HSFA Drama Club’s Road to Mecca

HSFA Drama Club’s Road to Mecca

The HSFA’s Drama Club (made up of enthusiastic residents of the HSFA) enjoyed the powerful classic South African Drama – ‘The Road to Mecca’ by Athol Fugard at The Playhouse Theatre on Sunday. Definitely a few tears were shed by the audience with some of the play’s resonating themes. The elaborate stage set was very impressive. Thanks to the team and excellent actors from The Playhouse.

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!
Jars of Hope from the HSFA

Jars of Hope from the HSFA

The Helderberg Society For the Aged’s residents from Assisted Living and some Independent Units all donated ingredients and their time to pack JARS OF HOPE as a Mandela Day initiative.  The HSFA, (although a ‘Not-for-Profit-Organisation’ itself), has a team of dynamic residents and staff who like to give back to their communities and charities.  Hundreds of “Jars of Hope” were provided to charities supported by Together Against Covid, Masincedane, as well as to HSFA’s own Garden Village Senior Service Centre.  Note all HSFA activities are done within the limits of safe Covid protocols
