New ILCSA Associate Rayne Stroebel
Rayne Stroebel, a long-time collaborator of the Institute of Ageing in Africa and ILC South Africa, has been appointed an Associate of ILCSA. He started the company GERATEC (Gerontological Research, Training, Education and Caring) in 1996. It is the only company in South Africa that provides services exclusively to the long-term care sector for Older People.
