Club delivers professional care to seniors

A Grassy Park organisation is doing all it can to assist seniors from all over the peninsula.

The Timeless Care Seniors’ Club delivers assisted professional care to about 100 senior citizens.

The organisation was started a year ago when it had initially planned to focus only on seniors in Grassy Park and neighbouring areas but Covid-19 has made the need for its help more widespread and so the club has expanded its services as far out as Eerste River.

When Faiqah Semaar started the project, her goal had been to offer administrative support, welfare
assistance, medical and any other help or guidance seniors often needed.

“The organisation prides itself on helping seniors in a variety of ways and assisting them with whatever they need, be it advice, after-care after surgery or general queries with government departments. We help them in whichever way we can to try and make things a little easier for them,” said Ms Semaar.

“We try to be a voice for seniors but also we try to help them find their voice.

“We teach them about their rights and elder abuse so that they can be equipped to live a later life of substance instead of waiting for their time to run out,” she added.

The national lockdown has halted many of the organisation’s programmes, but they are look-
ing for donations of toiletry or sanitary items as well as volunteers.
