Issy Geshen provides all the services needed to offer quality of life to our frail and indigent elderly residents. The home currently experiences a shortfall of R2659 per month per resident.

Is regular exercise keeping you healthy?

 

Keeping fit is always important, especially in old age.

Together, thanks to the caring people in this special group, we’ve been able to give our seniors a much better life over the past year.  Now we’re hoping you’ll be willing to help with our next ‘improvement’.

Our elders are enjoying keeping active. We’ve seen real benefits for them, especially for those who were losing mobility.

That’s why, as part of our Eden Alternative lifestyle, we’re encouraging daily fitness classes.  But we need some small equipment for the exercises – some hand weights, stretch bands, small and large exercise balls, that type of thing. Can we do this together, please?

Your donation made online by clicking here will be an investment in the health and happiness of our seniors. For me, there’ll be savings in the budget on medicine and caring. A win-win all round.

People who exercise tend to have better digestion, lower blood pressure and less chance of getting Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

It also has ‘feel good’ effects that help with depression and anxiety.  And that fits well into our plan to give our residents as much happiness as we can in their final years. Please will you help by clicking here to make your donation now?  Thank you!

The cost per resident is

Funded by 100% of the resident’s government pension

and (average)  government subsidy

Shortfall per resident per month

R7214 per month

R1695

R2860

R2659

How we’re funded:

Our annual budget for 2018 is about R6 million.

If not for the kindness and generosity of business, groups and individuals, we’d never be able to meet our budget deficit of
R2.2  million every year.

The challenge we are facing right now is that the shortfall increases every year because the cost of living – certainly the items we spend money on – increases by a higher percentage than the amount by which the government increases pensions and subsidies.  So it’s becoming ever more difficult, almost impossible now, to meet this shortfall.  Can you help? Your kindness will give our old people security into the future.  The alternative is unthinkable!
