CANSA Eikehof Care Home

Front viewCANSA Eikehof Care Home is situated in Athlone, Cape Town and is a wonderful home-from-home to cancer patients receiving cancer treatment far away from their own homes.

CANSA Eikehof Care Home offers a warm stay for our patients and their care-givers in well equipped, comfortable bedrooms and they have access to a secure garden setting or can relax in our lounge.

The dedicated staff members provide meals and transport to and from treatment centres, as well as emotional support and recreational activities.

Peace of mind is one of the most important support structures for patients far away from their natural support system during the duration of treatment, which could take up to six or eight weeks. The peace of mind CANSA Eikehof Care Home provides to our patients adds to the peace of mind of their family members. They can rest assured that their loved ones are cared for, physically and emotionally, in such a great environment.

Thando, a 28 year old male cancer Survivor diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, has been residing at CANSA Eikehof Care Home since February 2015. Says Thando:

“The welcome when I came here was very warm. Since I’ve been here, we’ve become one family with the other patients. Staff are looking after us well and making healthy food for us to eat. If I was at my cousin’s house I’d be looking after myself. The staff look after us. They are here for support, talk to you and encourage you to take your medicine on time. Activities that we’re doing here like exercise, playing games and talking to social workers, is also helpful.”

    I had the pleasure of attending Cansa Eikehof Care Home’s Thanksgiving Tea this morning.

    I am inspired by all the volunteers who received recognition certificates. Michelle, I salute you and your staff/caregivers for the amazing work that you do. The passion and commitment shines through.

    The function was awesome. You spoke from the heart and added a personal touch to each award.

    The emotions which we all shared, happiness for those who are celebrating life, sadness at the remembrance of loved ones who are no longer with us, gratefulness that God provides us with an opportunity to assist where we can, etc strengthens our feelings of hope, faith, love, joy and peace.

    God bless.

    Lotsa Love,

    I stayed in Eikenhof from October 2016 to December 2016 what a wonderful place to be. The staff are super and nothing is to big or small for them. I came as a patient and left as a sister. Thank you to each and every staff member you are awesome and I will miss every single one of you.

    My friend and I delivered about 63 carekits to Eikehof today. It was our 1st visit. I salute the people/caregivers who take care of the patients and who keeps the premises absolutely neat and tidy. We were very impressed. God Bless.
