Thembalami Care Centre
What makes Thembalami special?
Thembalami means ‘My Hope’ and this is a true reflection of what Rand Aid offers at this care centre, as residents have the opportunity to find new hope and meaning in a caring environment.
To create a homely atmosphere, residents bring items of personal or sentimental value, such as a favourite picture or even a comfortable chair. Visits by family and friends are welcomed at any time. We have regular family days to increase contact with loved ones and interaction amongst family members.
A beautiful lapa; paved walkways; manicured gardens, with water features; a fishpond; vegetable and herb garden; and scenic dam, with bird watching facilities, entices residents and their visitors to spend time outdoors. All these contribute to a sensory experience for residents, staff and visitors alike.
Residents are encouraged to remain active for as long as possible, therefore a range of activities, including regular outings, entertainment and participation in crafts and hobbies, are offered.
The care centre caters for 114 Elders who require some or other form of 24-hour nursing care.
The accommodation consists of north facing double or single rooms. Two single rooms are linked to a shared bathroom and all double rooms are en-suite. The latter accommodates couples comfortably. The upstairs rooms have access to a balcony, while the ground floor rooms lead directly into the beautiful gardens.
Fees include full board and lodging, 24-hour nursing care with a nurse-call system, podiatry, doctor on call and laundry service. An occupational therapy programme, that includes craft and recreation activities, is also offered. The services of a full-time social worker is included in our holistic care approach.

Assist an Elder in need
Many of Thembalami’s residents only receive a government grant and there is often no family support or money for niceties. Their small pension and government subsidy barely cover their basic needs.
You can make a difference in these Elders’ lives by adopting a granny or making a donation towards their care.
