Located in Bloemfontein, CANSA Olea Care Home is a wonderful home-from-home to cancer patients receiving cancer treatment far away from their own homes.

The CANSA Olea Care Home ensures a warm and welcome stay for our patients 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 through individual and group counselling, recreational activities and fellowship with other patients.

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 Olea 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.

Me. C Merais and Mr. Sebudi describe their stay:

Me. C Merais, “When I was first diagnosed with cancer I only wanted to be alone. When I got to Olea I was disappointed to see that I would need to share a room with other ladies. But now I am very happy. I have always said I would like to tour to Spain with a church group. I never knew how I would handle sharing with these people, and now Olea is my Spain. Sharing a room and knowing what other patients are going through has given me a reason for Hope. If I did not stay at Olea, I would never have realised my dream – I went to Spain!”

Mr. Sebudi, “To see people, who have the same disease as I do, helps me accept my cancer better. Olea has taught me, Hope, Respect, Culture…Hope!”

    Just want to say how much Olea and staff meant to me in my 6 weeks stay. It was a home away from home and all the patients and staff were so caring, kind and loving. I can not thank them enough. We had lovely rooms with brand new bedding. The food was delicious and it was so nice to have a safe drive in the transport every day. All I had to focus on was my treatment and rest.
    Thank you very, very much!
