The Cape Care Agency provides a friendly and personal care service that enables the frail, elderly or disabled client to continue to live independently in his/her own home.
Depending on the individual needs and health needs of the client, care may be provided on a full or part time basis ie. from 3 hours to 24 hours per day.
Clients and carers are assessed regularly and both receive ongoing support.

Often frail, elderly or disabled Clients are daunted by the prospect of travelling alone and so miss out on wonderful opportunities. We offer care in hotels / holiday accommodation as well as Carers who can accompany Clients on their travels.
In the modern day hospital patients are discharged as soon as possible. We can provide post operative or respite care in the Client's own home where recovery is often hastened by being in a familiar environment.
We currently work very successfully with community nursing sisters who are called in should the care situation require medical intervention or supervision.
Sometimes the choice to live in an institution is the right one. However many health care facilities today are understaffed and unable to give attention to the specific needs of the Client. Our Carers work very successfully in these facilities providing one on one care and giving the Clients the assistance needed. The services we provide currently range from driving a client to an appointment and companionship to 24 hour care.
Remaining in one’s own home means that life goes on as normal despite incapacity or frailty. Beloved pets, visitors, memorabilia all remain familiar and intact. Our Carers have been trained to look at care holistically in the Client's own environment. Duties could include walking the dog, cooking, tidying the linen cupboard, receiving guests etc. This enables the Client to retain their independence and continue to live according to their own rules.
We believe that this is everyone’s right.
With the changing times and our wealth of care experience, CAPE CARE offers a private recruitment division. Clients will now have the option of selecting their own private carer from our pool of carefully screened reliable carers. Our experience and support in all aspects of taking on and managing staff will facilitate your successful employment of a Carer.
