SA Home Care is a company that passionately cares for people suffering from advanced illnesses in the comfort, dignity and privacy of their own homes rather than in hospitals or frail care centres.
About SA Home Care
SA Home Care provides home-based care using medically trained caregivers, nurses and other professionals.
We comply with the regulations of a registered nursing agency providing home-based care. We operate within the parameters specified by the Department of Health and the Board of Healthcare Funders as required by the Council for Medical Schemes. Medical Schemes should be in a position to authorise treatment when we request authorisation for home-based care.
Receiving care in the comfort of their own homes, patients heal faster and are more likely to follow their health regimens. Many people in a variety of situations choose to enrol in homecare instead of spending unnecessary time at the hospital.
This option has become increasingly popular for terminal patients and families who prefer quality time at home whilst still receiving professional life care services.
Teams are coordinated via combined patient-centred multidisciplinary assessments, multidisciplinary meetings, and ongoing interactions and re-evaluations of patient progress and Care Plans.
A typical Care Team may include:
- Client Liaison Manager
- Coordinating Doctor
- Registered Nurse
- Occupational Therapist
- Social Worker
Our Head Office
SA Home Care’s Head Office is located in Cape Town, but we coordinate teams in the major metropolitan areas.
She has over a decade and a half experience in disease management specifically specialising in Health Risk Management as well as HIV counselling and Management

My wife suffers from Parkinson’s disease and fell and broke her hip and left elbow on 1 March 2017. She required surgery for a full hip replacement. She spent three weeks in a private hospital and because of the number of orthopaedic patients, per ward, received below average care particularly over weekends when staff reductions were implemented.
Her surgeon recommended “step down” treatment at a rehabilitation centre on her discharge from hospital. But our medical aid offered us a wonderful alternative.
They suggested we consider “SA Home Care” for a period of two weeks. We accepted their offer on condition she was cared for by competent carers, both day and night, and that a physiologist visit her 5 times per week.
We recommend SA Home Care for the following reasons:
• Patients are more comfortable and recover quicker in their home environments;
• A bond developed between my wife and the Carers who were guided by an experienced and knowledgeable Nursing Sister;
• The two Carers displayed empathy and warmth – typical behaviour of most Black African mothers;
• Physio sessions were also conducted in our home and proved to be more therapeutic.
To sum up, we would recommend “home care” to anyone if it involves a team comprising Carers, an experienced Nursing Sister to mentor and guide them and a qualified Physio.

On the 14th of July I experienced what I can regard as perhaps the most devastating events of my life when my beloved wife Thandeka, passed away.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the dedicated care which you gave my wife in the last days of her life. Though she suffered greatly, she died knowing that there were people like you who did their best to ensure that she was as comfortable as possible in the circumstances of her terminal illness.
I wished that we could have grown old together but alas, it was not to be. I will always treasure her memory and love her in her death as I have always loved her during her life. It is people like you who make difficult situations of pain and the death of loved ones less traumatic. My family and I really appreciate the palliative service and care you rendered to my wife and my family. We have grieved but now have reached a stage of acceptance that she is with the angels. We are learning to live without her physical presence but with her spirit. I dreamt about her last week and it was a beautiful dream.
Thank you so much,

We were clients of SA Home Care for about two years, and the care service was always thorough and compassionate. The staff are friendly and happy to assist.
I am very satisfied with SA Home Care and endorse them for care of elderly patients suffering from dementia.
Due to financial constraints, we as a family have decided to nurse our father and grand-father ourselves.
Initially we thought that he was so weak, that the inevitable was but a matter of time. Since then he has rallied remarkably.
We would like to thank you all, and especially Matthew Zimmerman for your care and empathy. Be assured, that we only have respect and are extremely greatfull to you all. We will not hesitate to recommend and/or use your company again.
Once again a BIG thank you to all.
Yours, Robert Reijnders
Mr Moagi is doing very well. Thanks for your help with his care.
