Community-based health care is for people of all ages who need health care assistance at home. Community care services include home support, nursing, physiotherapy and other rehabilitation services.

For example:

  • A nurse visits an elderly person at home to help with medication.
  • A home support worker helps a child in a wheel chair with personal care, such as bathing.
  • Doctor visits a sick patient to administer medication.

At Teheca we are starting a project aimed at helping the community to receive medical care and support from the comfort of there home.  This need arises from the fact our hospital in Uganda are congested and the sick may not be able to keep up with the long queues and hence unable to receive the required medication.

We also work towards creating a comfortable home environment for the elderly and Sick  by helping out with light domestic duties including:

  • Preparation of meals
  • Running daily errands
  • Performing light housekeeping and chores
  • Physical exercises.
  • Feeding.

In-home care offers an invaluable support system for primary caregivers and their families.

Community Care Access Centres:

  • Arrange for health and personal support services to come to your home.
  • Authorize services for special needs children in schools.
  • Manage admissions to long-term care facilities – for example, for seniors or elderly people.
  • Give information and referrals about other community agencies and services.


About Teheca

To a pregnant woman and new mother, Teheca is that one stop center that provides maternal and child health care information as well as qualified & caring healthcare providers who provide physical & emotional support and postnatal care services unlike any other platform, healthcare and social system.

We believe that the high mortality rate of mothers and newborn babies in developing and underdeveloped countries can be reduced by increasing access to maternal health information during pregnancy and increasing uptake of postnatal care after child birth for mothers, especially the first time mothers.
