Field:Nursing, senior care

Reference number: NURSE 002

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Length: Minimum 3 months

Short description: This is a non-profit organisation that has been represented in South Africa since 1991. In the early 90s when HIV/AIDS was beginning to spread, people becoming sick, suffering and many dying alone in their homes was when a few parishioners from the St Gabriel Catholic Church in Guguletu decided to form a care and support group to care and support for their sick members. In 1997 this network of carers became independent and moved to Khayelitsha.

TB was spreading fast and as an opportunistic infection among HIV positive people, it made people very ill and many died. They host programs that benefit the infected and affected people living with HIV/AIDS and TB, including other Chronic Diseases.

Our services now aim to offer a more integrated approach to health care. This includes increasing patient compliance (at all ages from pre-natal to old age), improving general wellbeing, manage chronic lifestyle disease and communicable diseases, to escalate new and emergencies/ illness/ disease when identified, to promote general wellbeing and to improve quality of life and to develop health individuals in healthy families (healthier communities)
