Anna Berkowitz

My initial involvement was indirectly through the Union of Jewish Women for more than 20 year. In 2010 I was tasked to run the 95th Highlands House  Birthday Celebrations and have been active since then.

I have always enjoyed the company of our elder community and have a passion for enhancing their lives . When I was Chairman of the UJW Cape Town Branch we had Friendship Lunches twice a week and many senior members came regularly. I realised that  I was able to connect and assist them and hope that I am doing the same at Highlands House. Highlands House has a dedicated Executive Director and Staff where everyone goes the extra mile regardless of remuneration or time restraints. They are continuously doing research on the field of geriatrics and looking for better ways to care for the residents .
