Health monitoring and chronic medication dispensed virtually on doorstep for elderly in Khayelitsha
A partnership between the Khayelitsha Community Health Centre (CHC) in Site B and NOAH is enabling access to frequent health services in a comfortable and loving environment for over 60 elderly people from Cape Town’s impoverished township.

These elderly are members of the Neighbourhood Old Age Homes (NOAH) social clubs and depend on a state pension of R1080 monthly. 

Following an illuminating survey, NOAH has garnered the support of the Khayelitsha CHC to extend its health services to this group of vulnerable elders. The service involves monthly health monitoring by NOAH staff at the NOAH service centre in Z69, Khayelitsha as well as the dispensing of medication - which is collected from the hospital on behalf of the elderly - by a registered nurse. The NOAH service centre is a familiar environment for the elderly who meet twice weekly for social banter, educational talks and a hot meal.

Both the elderly and the health facilities stand to benefit should this initiative succeed in Khayelitsha. NOAH has a long track record with the Western Cape Provincial Department of Health and has been successfully providing a comprehensive primary health care service to all its residents as well as social pensioners who live near its clinic in Woodstock.

Health Manager at NOAH, Sister Ada Kennedy commends Dr Gio Perez and Vatiswa Zola, Director of Khayelitsha Eastern Sub-structure and head pharmacist respectively, for their assistance in this initiative.
