Ons Tuis-group committed to a healthy lifestyle and good hygiene
The elderly are traditionally more vulnerable to infectious diseases, and it is understandable for residents of nursing homes and their families to panic with the coronavirus in the air. The Ons Tuis-group is, however, completely prepared to handle such diseases, since the homes are committed to a healthy lifestyle and good hygiene.
“The Ons Tuis-group has the necessary preventative measures in place and has always been mindful of a hygienic and clean environment at each of our homes,” says Mr Jaco Bothma, the Managing Director of Ons Tuis. “We do, however, think the virus is the ideal opportunity to bring the importance of daily hygiene under the attention of our residents and personnel again.”
The Ons Tuis-group launched an internal campaign to remind any roleplayers at the homes of the necessary procedures around health and hygiene, like a clean environment, regular handwashing – especially during eating and toilet routines – and healthy food.
