NPO to hold fun day

2016-07-07 06:00

THE Pro Deo Care Group invites everyone to an open fun day for people living with disabilities on 21 July at the Lions Club Hall in Ramsgate.

The purpose of the day is for Pro Deo to interact with people with different physical needs and get to know how to assist them.

Pro Deo is a non-profit inter-church organisation that provides, among other things, home care for the elderly and the frail, hospital visits and the provision of wheelchairs and walkers. They are also involved at the weekly cancer clinic in Port Shepstone.

Eloise van Niekerk of Pro Deo said the organisation is also now in a position to extend its service to the community with a 24-hour home care service for the elderly, frail, the disabled as well as cancer patients.

“This service will only include assistance with basic daily living activities such as grooming, mobilisation out of bed assistance, feeding as well as staying with patients while giving family members some time off,” said Van Niekerk.

All patients will be visited and evaluated by a professional nurse to establish the specific needs.

This will be done by appointments prior to the placement of care workers.

The Ramsgate Lions Club Hall is at Glenmarkie Drive and proceedings start at 11am. For more information, contact Wolfie on 083 271 3036 or Doreen on 083 243 9681. - Supplied.
