THE OA­SIS CARE CEN­TRE SPOKESPER­SON THE Oa­sis Care Cen­tre forms part of the Oa­sis Re­tire­ment Re­sort at Cen­tury City where the 4th block of sec­tional ti­tle apart­ments, Palme d’Or, is now 90% sold out some 8 months prior to com­ple­tion. The Care Cen­tre serves the needs of Oa­sis apart­ment res­i­dents as well as the gen­eral pub­lic.

The mis­sion of Oa­sis Care Cen­tre is to of­fer the best pos­si­ble care and to en­sure that each res­i­dent or pa­tient en­joys his or her life to the fullest po­ten­tial in a 5 star lux­ury en­vi­ron­ment. There are 4 dis­tinct ar­eas of care.

Phys­i­cal Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion is of­fered pre­dom­i­nantly to pa­tients cov­ered by Med­i­cal Aids for post-op­er­a­tive re­cov­ery and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, such as af­ter hip and knee re­place­ment as well as for re­cov­ery and re­hab from strokes and other trauma. Pa­tients are treated by an in house at­tend­ing doc­tor as well as a multi-dis­ci­plinary team of ther­a­pists cov­er­ing a broad spec­trum of phys­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

Sep­a­rate din­ing and lounge ar­eas and a sun room have been set aside for Med Aid pa­tients. There is a large re­cep­tion and ad­min area that ac­com­mo­dates the Duty Sis­ter, Pa­tient Care Co-or­di­na­tor and Ward Sec­re­tary and to pro­vide space for the ad­min func­tions of Drs and Ther­a­pists. The welle­quipped physio room flows into a gar­den area. All pa­tients have the use of sin­gle pri­vate rooms with a TV bou­quet and en suite toi­lets.

The care of Long Term Frail Care res­i­dents and pa­tients is co-or­di­nated from a sep­a­rate nurse sta­tion con­ve­niently lo­cated for easy ac­cess to all the rooms in that sec­tion. The res­i­dents and pa­tients have the use of their own ded­i­cated and beau­ti­fully ap­pointed din­ing and lounge ar­eas t hat l ead onto t he colour­ful cen­tral court­yard with at­trac­tive foun­tains.

The Alzheimer’s/De­men­tia wing is a self-con­tained unit on the 1st Floor and has as its fo­cal point a magnificent lounge area that can ac­com­mo­date up to 40 res­i­dents, as well as car­ers and friends and fam­ily.

The area is taste­fully fur­nished and is fur­ther en­hanced by a num­ber of clus­ter light fea­tures in bold colours. These light fea­tures are en­joyed by the res­i­dents and are fur­ther ev­i­dence of the at­ten­tion to de­tail in cre­at­ing the most ap­pro­pri­ate en­vi­ron­ment. There is a sep­a­rate more in­ti­mate lounge area for fam­ily and vis­i­tors to spend time with loved ones. The din­ing area looks out of over the court­yard and foun­tains. All res­i­dents have pri­vate full suites or sin­gle rooms with en suite toi­lets.

Care Cen­tre man­ager Lizzie Bry­nard- Brill says t hat “spe­cialised Alzheimer’s/De­men­tia care en­hances the qual­ity of life and dig­nity of those who have been di­ag­nosed with the con­di­tion. Oa­sis Care Cen­tre was one of the first fa­cil­i­ties in the Western Cape to ob­tain a for­mal Adult Men­tal Health Li­cense”.

The Care Cen­tre of­fers mod­ern at­trac­tive As­sisted Liv­ing rooms and suites where res­i­dents are of­fered more in­de­pen­dent life styles while en­joy­ing plenty of daily back up and care by a ded­i­cated team.

There is a reg­u­lar pro­gram that in­cludes out­ings to some of the most beau­ti­ful venues that Cape Town has to of­fer as well as movies, bingo, card games, ex­er­cise and more. The As­sisted Liv­ing din­ing and lounge ar­eas lead di­rectly onto the court­yard and the lounge area has re­cently been at­trac­tively re­fur­bished.

Res­i­dents and pa­tients also en­joy the beau­ti­ful land­scaped gar­dens, ponds and foun­tains that are a fea­ture of the magnificent re­sort.
