A Brief History
On 21 January 1969 the Tygerberg Service Centre for the Aged and Meals on Wheels
was established at 30 Weimar Street in Parow. Since 1994 the Service Centre extended
its services to the broader community according to growing needs. Feeding Schemes
were started and soup/bread, meals, food parcels, clothes, etc. were distributed
to needy families and children. After a proper assessment of the needs in the City
of Tygerberg in 1996 the Mobile Clinic "Health on Wheels" was established. Primary
Health Care services were high up on the priority list to determine the needs in
the community. This licensed Mobile Clinic renders affordable essential health services
to about 4362 patients in formerly disadvantaged communities.
