Lilyhaven Old Age Home
The CPOA is a registered NPO and has been taking care of elderly people for 65 years. The CPOA manages various retirement homes in the Western Cape, some of which are upmarket and some of which cater for indigent people.
Lilyhaven, in Bonteheuwel Cape Town, is one of the CPOA homes for elderly people without independant means. We provide care for 124 residents, all who are unable to care for themselves and are dependant on State Pensions. The CPOA subsidises the shortfall in accomodation and care costs but this does mean that we don't have funds available for projects that will benefit our residents.
Our wishlist includes Rain Water Collection tanks, a functioning grey water system and some shade ports for our residents. One of the spin-offs of this will be a food garden where we can grow fresh vegetables for our residents as well as make the environment prettier.
Our kitchen, where we produce three meals a day for 124 residents and 50 staff, also needs a full makeover.
Our funding goal is R 500 000 and every contribution, no matter how small or large, will be appreciated.
