For many years, it has been the Issy Geshen Management’s goal to upgrade and renovate the Home to improve the comfort of our frail residents who are living with dementia, extreme chronic health issues and various forms of disabilities.

The Issy Geshen Home appeals to the community to support their 2023 Christmas campaign for the elderly. Christmas is a time to celebrate the joy of giving. However, the really valuable gifts are not tangible ones. The Christmas spirit is more about spending quality time with family and loved ones, celebrating, feasting and creating memories […]
Issy Geshen Home Highlights Elder Abuse on the Rise
A day before South Africa commemorates Youth Day on 16 June is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
This day is especially significant to promote a better understanding of the abuse and neglect of older persons by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic processes affecting elder abuse and neglect.
Our Home is situated in Lamontville which is located approximately 15 kilometres south of Durban, and which provides invaluable holistic nursing care, and specialised dementia care to 68 frail elders over the age of 60.
Besides our dedicated team, Issy Geshen’s most valuable asset is our network of partners, volunteers and organisations. We know that bringing partners together creates synergies, and we’re inspired to help donors transform passion into impact.
Your Gift - Donate Cash
Monetary gifts are the most useful that assist us in providing 24 hour care, our operations and maintenance, in ensuring a safe and secure environment for our elders.
Do you have useful skills you could pass on to someone else, or put to good use to help us maintain our computers, office equipment, buildings, etc? Do you have time to help out with admin tasks, transport or gardening?
To Issy Geshen management. About 2 weeks ago we sadly buried our brother Louis Gabaye who was one of the residents there. I just want to reach out and thank you for the amazing care you provided my brother over the last 4 years. I know I speak on behalf of the whole family when I say that your devotion and kindness made those final weeks far more bearable for him. It's a great comfort to know that he was so well looked after up until the end, and we're truly grateful for that. May the Lord continue to bless you and your team for your unfailing service to the community.

We are pleased with the care our mother has received at Issy Geshen. Since she joined, there has been a great improvement in her condition. It is evident that the nurses are well trained in caring for people living with dementia.
