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!

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!

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.
The residents and staff of the HSFA have been doing their 67 minutes making Jars of Hope (nutritious soup mixes) for the less fortunate, and have been busy setting up decorations for Mandela Day lunches at selected units. Thank you all for giving back! YOU can give something back by supporting the HSFA on our donation page www.hsfa.org.za/shop
