Assisting the elderly of Reuven Old Age Home

Assisting the elderly of Reuven Old Age Home

Hot Cares received a request from one of our listeners, Tammy, who under normal circumstances joins a group of volunteers on a monthly basis to cook for the elderly at Reuven Old Age Home.

They are one of the many groups of people and charity organisations that ensure that the 250 residents are taken care of, have food to eat and that the facilities are cleaned and well kept.
The residents receive government social grants, which is used to pay for their accommodation and utilities. However, for all their other needs they rely on community support.

During lockdown, volunteers are unable to cook for, deliver food and visit the elderly. Hot Cares was happy to contribute towards the 200 food parcels that were delivered to the home- ensuring that the caregivers and residents are taken care of.

A big thank you to Tammy and her friends for giving us the opportunity to assist, and for all they do for the elderly residents throughout the year.

Hot Cares Contributes Towards Protecting EMS During Covid-19

Last week, Hot Cares donated protective gear such as masks, gloves, and sanitizer to the South African Police Service stations within our area. They also received a Dischem voucher for their station commander to purchase medical supplies, vitamins, and immune boosters to keep the teams healthy during this difficult time.
 
Hot Cares has also assisted local fire stations with protective gear and other essential items. These teams are on the frontline and need to decontaminate their clothing every time they have come into contact with someone who is infected with Covid-19.
 
We would like to thank our community services such as the SAPS, firemen, medical and EMS teams for their commitment and dedication in keeping us safe.
