Testimonials

Ek en die kinders wil die personeel van La Vie Care Oosmed van harte bedank vir al die liefde en uitstekende versorging wat julle vir Jan sedert 17 Junie gegee het. Dankie Trudie nie net vir wat jy vir Jan gedoen het nie, maar ook vir my. Wanneer hy sy goed wou pak en huis toe kom, het jy hom weer tuis laat voel in sy nuwe omgewing. Ons het groot waardering vir Susters Els en Lungile vir Jan se mediese versorging en bystand aan hom. Maar ook baie dankie aan elke ander suster en versorger. Hy het meer as een keer gesê dat almal vir hom goed is. Dankie René veral met die reël van besoeke onder die inperkingsmaatreëls. Dankie Karien vir jou besondere hantering van Jan tydens die fisioterapie-sessies.

Dear Louise (Elmed)
I was doing some clearing up of my inbox and came across your email and realised I never thanked you or updated you on my aunt’s condition.
Sadly on the day I received your email she suffered a severe stroke that left her in a vegetative state. Thankfully the very kind doctor at the hospital allowed my mom (who is 94 – 14 years older than Joekie) to see her sister and say goodbye before they removed all life support. In many ways the severe stroke was a blessing as Tannie Joekie’s future looked very bleak indeed.
Thank you for the information you so readily sent. Even though we did not use your services, we were glad to hear about what you offered.
May you and your team continue to be blessed in the work your do.
Kind regards

Good Afternoon Anel and team, (Brentmed)

Hope you are doing well.
Apologies for the delay in sending the email, been a bit manic as you would know.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone at La Vie for the way in which Victor is being cared for. During the procedure at the Lynnmed, the surgical team were very complimentary on the condition that Victor is in. This is testament to the love and care that he receives from everyone at La Vie, both on day shift and night shift.

We thank you and salute you for the efforts and care you put in on a daily basis.

Hi Rencia, (Waterkloof Marina)
Dit is min dat kundigheid en ń hart met care en omgee bymekaar kom wanneer dit kom by versorging van ons bejaardes, ons oupas, oumas, mammas en pappas. In besonder is dit wat ons ervaar met Alida en Heidie. Hulle is regtig ń ongelooflike aanwins vir die bejaarde inwonders en ń ongelooflike asset vir Waterkloof Marina. Kyk mooi na die 2. Uit ervaring weet ek hoe raar uistkieter skills is. Hulle hou alles baie goed in toom, en dit vat nogal iets besonders om dinge optimaal te laat verloop met staff management en familie in die mix bygegooi. Hulle leiding, pro-active thinking and raakvat om die regte dinge op die regte tye gedoen te kry (met ń caring aanslag tot die pasiente ) is regtig noemenswaardig. Joseph het ń baie besonderde aanslag en ge-aardheid en sy care en omgee en die geduld waarmee hy die ouer garde hanteer, is ook ongelooflik. Ek is weet daar is ander baie goeie mense wat amazing werk doen. Ons kan ongelukkig net terugvoer gee op die individue met wie ons in kontak is. Rencia ook net komplimente aan jou. Ons experience van die Waterkloof Marina kultuur is wat ons die besluit laat maak het dat pa in goeie hande is en met care, omgee en met goeie kundigheid versorg sal wees, en dit it is nogsteed ons evaring. Jou accessibility, en vermoë om situasies op ń professionele en tog menslike manier te hanteer tot voordeel van die inwonders is merkwaardig. Dit is altyd aangenaam en maklik om met jou en jou staf te werk, baie dankie ! Ons waardeer julle en die care wat julle my pa gee (en al die ouer mensies daar ongelooflik baie !)

Graag wil ek baie dankie sê vir die voorreg wat ek gehad het om tyd saam met mamma te kon deurbring op hierdie spesiale dag. Ons het haar 78ste verjaarsdag gevier. Dankie vir julle almal wat gehelp het om hierdie dag vir mamma spesiaal te maak. Almal was so bereidwillig om te help. Van skottel water aandra tot handdoeke voorsien sodat ek oumie se voete kon vertroetel met lekker massering. Tafel en stoele aandra sodat ek moedertjie met ń burger en aartappelskyfies, kon verras. Die heerlike gesels en die tyd saam was kosbaar en ek sal die herinnering vir altyd in my hart ronddra.
Die tyd het so gou verbygegaan, maar was een van die hoogtepunte vir 2020. Dankie Trudie en die hele LA VIE Oosmed span wat alles in hul vermoë doen om ons geliefdes veilig en gesond te hou. Die kreatiwiteit wat aan die dag gelê word om mamma-hulle te bederf en te stimuleer met aktiwiteite. Die moeite wat aangegaan word om hulle spesiaal te laat voel bv die gesigsbehandeling wat ń tydjie gelede gereël was. Dit was so mooi gedoen van musiek tot blomme tot dekor om atmosfeer te skep .Wow dit was net ongelooflik. Dankie dankie dankie vir soveel wat woorde nie kan se nie. Julle is kosbaar vir ons.

Liewe Christelle, Susan en personeel, (Northmed)
Baie dankie dat jul so mooi kyk en omgee vir my skoonma Babs Eksteen dankie vir die streng kontrole gedink dit kom …. Ek waardeer elke liewe dingetjie wat jul doen vir haar en ons, mens kry nie altyd die geleentheid om dit te sê nie maar…julle is amazing en baie spesiaal… Baie mense dink die covid is maar net ….maar dis realiteit en vir mense wat onderliggende siektes het is dit lewens gevaarlik. Julle sorg altyd so mooi vir almal dat jul skoon vergeet dat jul julself ook mooi moet oppas. Ek bid en vra die Here dat Hy asseblief, Sy hand van beskerming oor ons almal sal hou en ons krag gee vir elke dag en ons ‘n helder verstand sal gee en ook baie energie. Mooi bly xxx

Dear Christelle and Susan, (Northmed)

Just to let you know that my mom passed away during the early hours of Saturday morning.
Thank you to both of you for your assistance and support over the past 9 months in terms of arranging carers, accommodating my changing requests and really trying to help me from a costing perspective when I needed to arrange 24 hour carers.

Please also say a big thank you to Sister Thomas for her support and being available when we needed her.

Hallo Anél (Brentmed)

Ek wil net weereens baie dankie sê vir julle puik diens.
Ek verstaan daar is weer iemand vanaand by my ma. Ek en Vera dink sy is nou ok om op haar eie te wees gedurende die nag. Bedags het ons met Bileen gereël vir die "inloer" diens.

Mooi dag vir jou en jou span.

Louise, Malie, Susan and Frail care Staff

I'm the eldest daughter of Sylvia Benadie (95 years of age) who was cared for +- 5 years at Elmed Frail Care - La Vie Care. She passed away in Frail Care on Wednesday 27th January 2021. I want to take this opportunity to thank Louise McLennon, Manager of Elmed Frail Care - La Vie Care and all of her staff for the precious way they cared for our mother. She was always telling me that she was happy there and everyone is looking after her with loving care. Special thanks from me and my family for the empathy they had with us since Sunday until Wednesday when she passed away in peace. Thank you very much from the Eicker family.

Goeiedag Susan, (Northmed)
Ek is mev Louw se dogter wat haar na La Vie Care geneem het. My moeder was baie swak en siek maar het nogtans met groot liefde gepraat van die behandling wat sy van al die personeel by La Vie Care ontvang het. Dit was ook my ervaring dat ons as kinders, selfs na moeder se afsterwe op 13 Julie 2020, met liefde en deernis deur jou en jou personeel behandel is. Ons as gesin spreek dus graag ons waardering teenoor julle uit en wens julle alle seen toe in die goeie werk wat julle doen. BAIE BAIE DANKIE

Hello Trudie! (Oosmed)
Hartlike dank vir alles wat jy en jou personeel vir Nora gedoen het. Ons kan nie dink aan iets beter nie. Sy was nie sommer maar net ‘n nommer nie. Sy is met persoonlike liefde en deernis versorg. Dit het oorgespoel na ons toe en ons het lief geword vir julle. Soveel so dat nou dat alles oor is verlang ons na julle! Pas julle goed op. Hartlike groete met beste wense.

Baie dankie vir die reël van die vensterbesoeke. Alhoewel die eerste besoek vir ons traumaties was, vir ons en my ma, was dit tog ook wonderlik. Ek reken dit is vir my ma regtig belangrik om te sien dat ons haar nie vergeet het en sommer net "gedrop" het nie. Ek dink ook besoeke van my stiefsussie en haar man, Elize en Marius, sal vir my ma goed wees. Die interaksie met die sentrumbestuur is ook vir ons van waarde. Doen asseblief so voort.

My pa, mnr G.S. Koekemoer, was vir bykans 3 jaar in die eenheid versorg. Ons gesin was dikwels verbaas en beïndruk deur die wyse van behandeling en sorg wat hy ontvang het. Hy was altyd skoon en sy kamer was altyd netjies. As my pa gekla het, was dit oor iets wat hy teen sy sin moes doen wat slegs vir sy eie voordeel was! As gesin kyk ons terug op die tyd wat hy in La Vie Care @ Oosmed was en besef ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie! Met sy afsterwe was ons betyds in kennis gestel sodat ons die laaste moment van sy lewe kon by wees om van hom afskeid te neem. Ons was met die grootste empatie behandel en deur die seer begelei. Ons grootste dank en waardering aan die personeel van La Vie!

BAIE DANKIE uit ons hart uit vir die daaglikse oggend en aand versorging wat julle vir my pa gedoen het. Die liefde, geduld en vriendelikheid waarmee jul werkers dit elke dag gedoen het, het soveel vir my ma en ons beteken. Dankie dat ek sommer elke keer jou net kon laat weet as ons situasie verander het en vir al jou omgee en oproepe. Mag die Here jou hande elke dag sterk maak vir die fantastiese omgee mens wat jy is!

Baie dankie dat en my kinders Maandag ‘n hele halfuur met my pa kon kuier. Hy lyk so goed en het in jare nie soveel gesels in ‘n halfuur nie. Die manier wat julle die kuier so met die Covid19 kiem saam hanteer is regtig oulik en het baie goed gewerk. Dankie ook dat julle so mooi na hom kyk. Ek was sommer emosioneel toe ek sien hoe lekker hy met jou dans op Hasie hoekom is jou stert so kort. Dankie vir die mooi video.

I just wanted to thank all the staff in the frail care at Country Life (Brentmed) for the exceptional good care of Mr SP Pieterse . We have been part of the frail care since it was just opened and I must say the last couple of months we have seen such a positive change in care as well as the up keep of the centre . All staff members from nursing to caregivers and cleaners are so professional and friendly . I must also mention that they handle Mr Pieterse’s Epileptic condition with so much discretion and care . I wanted to bring this under your attention. Our deepest gratitude to ALL .

Dis vir my 'n plesier en voorreg om, in eie naam en namens my moeder, Mev Maxie Steenkamp, hierdie brief van waardering te skryf vir die buitegewone diens en hulpvaardiheid wat ons ontvang van Sr Stella Smit (Oosmed). Haar medemenslikheid en dienswilligheid, sowel as haar ervaring en kundigheid, manifesteer op soveel vlakke en geleenthede...Voorwaar 'n onbaatsugtige demonstrasie van naaste liefde en sorgsaamheid, wat u organisasie (en haar persoonlik) tot groot eer strek.

Ek wil net dankie sê vir die Admin span en personeel hier by Elmed. Ek dink julle het absoluut die spyker op die kop geslaan met Riana se aanstelling. Vandat die nuwe aanstellings van Louise en nou Riana plaasgevind het, is dit 'n absolute plesier om saam te werk.
