Jagersbosch provides Healthcare in various ways
Jagersbosch strives to provide primary health care to all its members.
This includes the following:
- Regular visits
- Emergency number
- Blood pressure
- Foot care
- Blood sugar
- Wound care
- Home washes/baths
- Equipment rentals
Jagersbosch offers a 24-hour Emergency Call service to all its members. As a member you can call this number at any hour should a health emergency situation occur at your home.
Please note, however, that this service is not a paramedic service. It is a support service only.
A Carer will visit a member in need help as soon as possible and will offer support until the appropriate help arrives to take care of the emergency.
Emergency Number – 072 246 7764
Soon after joining Jagersbosch, a registered sister as well as a registered social worker will visit the new member. The purpose of this visit is to evaluate the person’s health as well as mental/spiritual needs.
Following the evaluation, they visit the member at home either weekly, monthly or yearly according to his/her identified needs.
Members are evaluated on a regular basis to establish whether a person actually needs more (or perhaps less) visits.
Jagersbosch also offers limited home care services to members on request. These comprise services such as shower, body wash, foot care, catheter care, wound care as well as eyedrops. Also tests such as blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.
The Friedensheim Care Clinic offers these services as well.
Local transport to doctors, shops, the bank, the clinic and so on, are also arranged.
