Responses From Our Happy Residents

Don’t Believe Us, Believe What Our Residents Say.

We asked some of the residents about their experiences while being residents at La Gratitude. This is what they said.

“I started living here from last year September, because I dislocated my shoulder. As my injury occurred I went to the hospital on my own but did not succeed in getting help. After a month I decided to come to La Gratitude, the girls from here took me back to the hospital. They know the hospitals really well.

This time they showed me my x-ray and asked my age. When I told them that I am 89 years old, the doctor told me that an operation on my shoulder will only make everything worse and it is better to rather endure.

All the staff here from top to bottom, they are dedicated, to them it is not a matter of money, it is a calling.
I appreciate that.

No Apartheid here, we stay together black and white. eat together at the table.

All these girls that cook for us, they know how to cook. No wonder why I am now stout. My trousers now, some of them don’t fit me. When I get home, they wonder, Hauw….What’s wrong. Anyway, I am happy.

Na my man se dood wou ek nie alleen wees nie, ek en my dogters het besluit op n tehuis vir my, en het toe op La Gratitude afgekom en ons het kom kyk en onmiddelik besluit La Gratitude is my nuwe tuiste.

Ek was met die intrapslag warm verwelkom deur mede inwoners en personeel. Ek is nog nie een dag spyt dat ek La Gratitude gekies het nie, dit is soos familie hier.

Ek is baie gelukkig en het sommer vining vriende gemaak. Indien dit die Here se wil is, wil ek nog lank gespaar bly om in La Gratitude te kan woon.

Die personeel is almal wonderlik, hul gaan uit hul pad om my van hulp te wees.

I lost my wife a while ago, and I chose to go to an Old Age Home, that is when I chose to go to La Gratitude.

I’ve been here a very short time, but I instantly felt welcome, I’ve already made a few friends. The personnel could not wait for my arrival. I made my choice of choosing La Gratitude after all the good things I heard about La Gratitude.
