TAFTA old age frail care for the elderly - services

By: Tafta  11-11-2011

Everything you need

All TAFTA services are geared to promoting the welfare and happiness of aged people, and alleviating distress and hardship.

Although we run several homes for the aged in and around Durban, our goal is to encourage elderly men and women to live as independent members of the community in their own homes for as long as possible.

We do this by offering support services such as:

  • Laundry scheme (fresh sheets, pillow cases and towels supplied weekly)
  • Respite care (short term care and rehabilitation after an operation or illness, or when care-givers need to take a break)
  • Advisory clinics (blood pressure testing, dressings, injections, glucose monitoring, etc)

Because most of these services are either free or subsidised to allow access by elderly people with limited means - we rely heavily on support from caring individuals and local business.
