Elderly treated with love and care at Issy Geshen

The Issy Geshen choir performed at the conclusion of the breakfast.

It was a corporate breakfast with a difference! Members of the media and special guests got to interact with residents of the Issy Geshen Lamont Home for the Aged at a breakfast held at the Pavilion Hotel, last Friday.

This was the first breakfast held by the home and was a way of saying thank you to generous sponsors for their support and to showcase the essence of the home and its residents.

The guest speaker at the event was Sanele Dlamini, provisional manager for the National Lotteries Commission, who spoke about the relationship between the home and its continued partnership with the establishment.  As part of the entertainment, the Issey Geshen Choir performed for the guests.

According to spokesman, Tenley Cummings, Felicity Crouch, the amazing occupational therapist at the home, introduced music as a therapeutic tool and as a result the choir was formed three years ago.

In 2014, Crouch initiated the annual inter-home choir festival for the elderly and is responsible for managing the event. Six homes participated in 2015, with the Issy Geshen Choir taking first place. This year, the festival will host 19 old ages homes.

The home provides comprehensive and holistic care for 68 frail and indigent elderly residents whose only source of income is their government pension. The primary objective of the home is to provide comprehensive and holistic care, and promote the physical, emotional and social well-being of our residents.

Chairman of the board, Guy Levene, thanked everyone for attending and encouraged members of the community to visit the home and meet the lovely residents.
