Established in 1975, CANSA Mkhuhla Care Home ensures a warm and welcome 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 psychological support through individual and group counselling, recreational activities and fellowship with other patients. Spiritual support is also provided in non-denominational prayer meetings.
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 Mkhuhla 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, emotionally and spiritually, in such a great environment.
Mrs Van Der Merwe describes her stay:
“It is very nice here – the home is lovely and clean and the food is excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. My home is 6 hours drive from Durban and staying at the Mkhuhla Care Home has made it possible for me to have treatment for my cancer. I thank God for this home and the people who work here. I have enjoyed the prayer groups and also the Support Group, where we heard a talk on nutrition for people living with cancer by a dietician. I am looking forward to next weeks craft group. To people with cancer, I would say , ‘Keep your courage, keep your faith, keep taking the treatment and keep on going!’”
