Netcare Krugersdorp Hospital and Netcare 911 Krugersdorp celebrated Easter by handing out chocolate Easters bunnies to the elderly.
What was meant to be a normal relaxing day at an old age home, turned into an event filled with excitement for the residents of two local old age homes in Krugersdorp.
The elderly at the La Reynette Centre and Môreglans Old Age Home had a spectacular start to Easter this year.
Netcare Krugersdorp Executive Management and Netcare 911 Krugersdorp base spoiled them when they visited them on Thursday morning 14 March.
Hospital General Manager Motlalentoa Motsoane for Netcare Krugersdorp Hospital came up with the idea to hand out chocolate bunnies to every elderly resident at the two old age homes.
“The idea was to ensure our elderly residents of care centres that they are not forgotten,” he says.
This project turned out to be a huge success and most enjoyable. The management team of Netcare Krugersdorp Hospital, together with Netcare 911 staff managed to put a smile on the every elderly peoples faces through this gesture.
“Netcare Krugersdorp Hospital, Netcare Bell Street Hospital, Constantia Day Clinic, Protea Day Clinic and Netcare 911 West Rand bases will plan similar events throughout the year and for all other special days,” concludes Motsoane.
