I hope other readers can provide useful advice here - and it'd help if you could post a response to this clarifying WHERE in SA you live. Over-all, state provision for the elderly is disgraceful. I seem to remember that recently with regard to a similar question an excellent origanization in the Cape was recommended, and perhaps people would know if it has branches elesewhere, or of there are similar organizations elsewhere in SA. As I'm in a similar status, I'd be interested to see the responses here.
