2013 was a tough year for both residents and staff at Frederic Place – the old age home in Coronationville. Money has been tight, and staff cuts and other economies have had to be introduced, to enable the home's survival.
But if you will help now, we can continue to feed and shelter the 85 old and frail residents in our care.
Frederic Place is 'home' to a diverse group of aged South Africans of all races and from all walks of life. Amongst them is a blind lady, another who is a paraplegic and a double amputee gentleman. Many have no family left. Your kindness in contributing towards any of these needs will be so greatly appreciated:
- groceries: all kinds of food, cleaning materials and toiletries;
- emergency call buttons in the ablutions in case residents need to summon help;
- reupholstering of sofas
- bedside lamps
- industrial food blender
- clothing and shoes.
Any help you can give towards these needs will make these 'oldies' happier and more comfortable. Thank you.
