House Calls in Cape Town

Could you please tell me if their are any Doctors/Nurses or Organisations that do medical home visits in Cape Town? My grandparents are both in their 90's and I am concerned about their health. It would be nice if they could have a medical exam every month at their home, just to check their basics. This info would be much appreciated.

Dear Piola,
The local municipalities used to have sisters that visited patients at home - phone your nearest municipal clinic and hear if they still do this? Another option is to organize with a GP nearby to do a home visit.

whoever suggested moving them to an old age home is an insensitive person. i admire this person for wanting to care for her aged grand parents.

Phone one of the provincial hospitals and ask them if they know of any doctor who will do house calls. Or ask any pharmacy in C/T. There is bound to be a pharmacist who will know of someone who does house calls.

Shouldn't they maybe be living in an old age facility where there is 24hr medical treatment available?
