TruCare provide compassionate and reliable home care services to help keep seniors safe and independent wherever they call home. We are a client-centred Home Care Service Provider, offering services across Gauteng. We are driven by our passion for quality care which results in quality of life to our clients.
As we grow older – due to different factors – opportunities to choose gets less. It’s this lack in choice at care facilities, that gave birth to TruCare. We understand that more people choose to age at home. We make that possible by bringing care to you in the environment of your choice.
We respect the older persons right to choose what happens in his/her own life and environment and adapt our services to that. We recognise the many facets of support and care that individuals require. By addressing that through our different care options, tailor-made to the individuals’ requirements, aging in place not only becomes possible, but is done with great success.
We realize being older does not necessarily mean being sick. Across the world aging in place has long been the option of choice and this trend is growing in South Africa. The support and care offered by us is similar to that offered in a frail care facility, thus ensuring peace of mind to family. We follow a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure only the best care to our clients. In addition to our multi-disciplinary approach we liaise with different support services across Gauteng to ensure we address all care needs of our clients appropriately.
When an individual receives care from TruCare in their own home setting, they’re able to enjoy their privacy, independence and retain control over their lives while receiving quality care with involvement from all role-players within the multi-disciplinary team. Rehab by the appropriate specialist combined with the home environment speeds up recovery and bring about quality of life.
Researchers believe that limits of lifespan will continue to increase indefinitely. However, little is known on what the quality of life is and whether older populations are living the extra years of life in good or poor health.
In view of this, TruCare has developed a model of home care to promote quality of life to the individual in the environment of their choice. “Because you feel better at home” and we know that, we support independent living by filling the gaps as they arise.
“Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.”
-John Ed Pearce
The place we call home is the place that feels most comfortable, familiar, and secure. A sense of home can become especially important as we age. The aging process may bring with it discomfort or perceived threats to safety.
Our in-home care services help ease the challenges of aging while encouraging you to continue enjoying the comforts of home.
Just a note to let you know that Ntombi and Promise are amazing and have made a huge improvement to our parent’s quality of life. They are incredibly kind, caring and thoughtful! A big thank you for making such a difference to our family!
This is very long overdue, and my only excuse is that I have found it so very difficult to do, and so I have been procrastinating. I just want to thank you so much for all you did for my beloved Mom. You became so much more than a “care giver” to Mom and I know she was very, very fond of you, and that she looked forward to your visits and chats. For me, words can never adequately express my gratitude, you have a very rare and precious gift in what you do for the elderly. Society focuses so much on the youth and children, and the elderly, who have spent a lifetime contributing to society, seem to be forgotten – you are very special Suzette. And your staff reflect your attitude which is an amazing tribute to you. Thank you also for being at Mom’s memorial service, I know it was difficult for you and appreciate it all the more that you were there, thank you. I cannot begin to imagine the emotional strain that your “calling” has on you, and yet I have no doubt that you make every patient feel as special as you made Mom feel.
Thank you again Suzette, and bless you for all you do.
My sincere thanks to both Dawn and yourself for the excellent service rendered by the carers provided by your organisation, namely Winnie and Precious. They were, by any standards, high quality people, possessing all the required skills for respite care.
I would also like to commend Dawn, Sister Kobie and yourself for your assistance and efficiency, which were highly appreciated.
I look forward to making use of your services whenever the need arises, and I will certainly recommend your organisation to anybody looking for a high-calibre service provider.
I am so sorry it has taken me this long to email you and tell you what we think of TruCare! We are both so impressed with TruCare; your professionalism, dedication and an outstanding carer in Francina. Not only was I totally convinced that Clive was in good hands while I was away, but he really enjoyed her company and would so love to have her back when I next take a week away! I am hoping that might just be possible in the future J Needless to say, I have recommended you and TruCare to several friends since I returned home.
Please give our best love to Francina and to yourself, many thanks and congratulations.
