AMALA Ouetehuis in Jeffreysbaai het onlangs ’n splinternuwe Al-zheimers-eenheid geopen.

Met dié opgradering sal die wêreld van Álzheimer-pasiënte wat by die tehuis tuisgaan, weer nuwe betekenis kry.

“Dié pasiënte verloor mettertyd die vermoë om hul omgewing te herken. Die gevolg is dat hulle maklik verdwaal,” sê matrone Estelle Botha. “Tot dusver was die pasiënte tot hul kamers en die gebou beperk.”

Hulle het egter pas ‘n toegeboude tuintjie en ’n gebou van hul eie ryker geword. Dit spog met nege beddens, ’n kombuis, eetkamer en sitkamer.

Volgens Botha sal die gerief baie vir die pasiënte by Amala se Al-zheimers-eenheid beteken.

Volgens Botha is die eenheid met CCTV-kameras, ’n telefoon en noodknoppie toegerus.

“Opgeleide personeel sal 24-uur aan diens wees,” sê Botha
