Welcome to Quasar House

In 1981 a group of quadriplegics pooled their resources and purchased a house in Parow, Cape Town to accommodate themselves styled “Quasar House.” For these quadriplegics, it was a dream come true seeing that it was the first time in many years that they could live independently and be able to make their own decisions and live and function in the community.

Committed to Independence

Quasar is committed to promoting independence, self-reliance & understanding of quadriplegics. Quasar raises funds for quadriplegics with Golf Days, Charity Auctions, Conference Facilities, and One-Stop Mail & Print Solutions. Quasar advises on rehabilitation and trains care givers.

Part of the Community

The way the new quadriplegic residents set themselves up as mature and independent functional members of the local community, later became a demonstration model on how independent disabled people can live and function in the community.

Quasar Mission & Goals

  • To protect and promote the interests of quadriplegics.
  • To establish homes for quadriplegics where the environment and living conditions shall be close to those of the normal life of a person.
  • To support and advise quadriplegics and their families during the period between their rehabilitations at the hospital and their return to the community.
  • To promote a better understanding of the needs and problems of quadriplegics.
