HSFA residents ‘turquoise’

The Helderberg Society For the Aged’s (HSFA) staff and residents have been supporting the national awareness campaign “Turn Turquoise for the Elderly” which ran from 15 May (International Family Day) to 15 June (World Elderly Abuse Awareness Day). The campaign is now recognised in the national list of awareness days.

The purpose of the campaign is to create awareness about the elderly in communities, especially those not accommodated in institutions for the elderly.

HSFA hosted a series of enjoyable (but Covid regulated) luncheons for their Assisted Living, Frail Care and some Independent Unit residents to raise awareness of this campaign.

The lunches had a beach theme and staff and residents were encouraged to dress up in turquoise or beach gear and feel the sand between their toes, while sipping on turquoise cocktails and listening to tunes such as “Kokomo”, “Under the Boardwalk” and the like.

Images of turquoise oceans were projected on the walls to transport the residents to favourite beach memories and Geratec served delicious a seafood cocktails, beach burgers and turquoise-coloured desserts.

On 15 June – World Elderly Abuse Awareness Day – the HSFA staff wore a turquoise ribbon in support of the “Turn Turquoise for the Elderly” National Campaign.

The HSFA ensures the best possible care for its residents and aims to provide a safe and informed environment. Should anyone wish to donate to this important cause and support the elderly communities that fall prey to abuse, please visit https://goturquoise.co.za/ for further details about the campaign and the society.
