ComaCARE - Coma patients are more than a shell
ComaCARE is a Non-Profit Organization (NPO) made up of motivated individuals; including health professionals, family members and care givers, who wish to improve and enhance the level of coma care in our society. ComaCARE strongly believes that those in comatose states are in meaningful life processes.
We have 3 core programmes: ComaCARE, HeadsUP! and Abundant Life.
ComaCARE helps coma patients, their family members and care givers understand the coma and get the help they need at this very difficult time. Our aim lies in building caring partnerships between medical and professional staff, care givers, family members and patients where everyone plays a role in the patient's recovery or dying process.
The HeadsUP! Brain Injury Prevention Programme works with high risk groups and schools to prevent brain injuries.
The HeadsUP! Rehabilitation Programme works to reintegrate the brain injury survivor back into their families and communites. Our Khayelitsha hub trains families to cope with disruptive brain injury behaviours and we offer ongoing support groups in the townships and surburbs.
