Sister Tertia Scholtz qualified as a nursing sister in 1974 and has extensive knowledge and experience in just about every aspect of medical care, boasting an awe-inspiring career timeline that spans over 40 decades. Sister Tertia had a deep passion for what others in the medical profession often found most daunting, and was at her most content when dealing with life-threatening situations in the emergency rooms and intensive care units of the hospitals where she worked in Mossel Bay and Cape Town. In 2003 Tertia jetted off to England to head an advanced Alzheimer's home. On her return to South Africa Tertia worked as the school sister at a juvenile offenders facility after which she worked at the Cheré Botha School, which was originally part of the Down’s Syndrome Association of the Western Cape. Tertia could very well be referred to as a modern day Florence Nightingale due to her immense sense of duty to those in need of medical help and assistance.
Tertia and her husband relocated to the Pearly Beach Resort in 2010 and established Pearly Beach Oord Noodhulp / First Aid Emergency Room. Cross Home Care consists of a team of 13 highly trained staff members.
Tertia will personally meet with you to properly assess your care needs after which she will introduce you to a friendly, qualified and experienced care-worker. Home-care does not have to be full-time or permanent and Cross Home Care care-workers offer a service which is used by clients when their family members go on holiday or when returning from hospital and they need a little extra assistance. Tertia personally conducts a weekly check-up to ensure that Cross Home Care maintains their level of excellence.

Home Care (around-the-clock support for things like bathing, dressing, light housekeeping or even a ride to the grocery store):
The services a carer provides are endless and in most cases the carer forms a strong bond with their client. Daily tasks could include:
A wheelchair that is the first of its kind in South Africa has been donated to Cross Home Care by the Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA) meaning the beach will now be accessible to everyone...regardless of their disabilities. The chair is made of medical grade PVC, has non-corrosive plastic bearings and high flotation heavy duty wheels, which allows the physically disabled access to the water and provides better mobility over unpaved areas. Sister Tertia Scholtz says the use of the PVC beach wheelchair will be free of charge and anyone is welcome to book the chair for themselves or a loved one for their next beach adventure.
