HOME BASED CARE
Ikhaya Le Themba has trained communities to provide basic nursing care to patients in their homes. These services include bed bath, mobility exercises, wound care etc. The communities we support are in Khayelitsha, Wellington and Harare Zimbabwe. These visits are carried out on week days.
An integral part of the Home Base Care supplied to communities involves the feeding of the patient and often his/her family a nutritious soup/meal. Carers visiting patients take soup with every visit. Food security is one of the most pressing needs we face. When we are able, we provide food parcels to the needy families in Wellington/Khayelitsha.
Ikhaya Le Themba has established community gardens used as training hubs for people in communities to be taught to grow their own home gardens. The produce from the community gardens is handed out to needy families and is used to supply the soup kitchens with nutritious organic vegetables.
