Providing suitable and affordable accommodation for older persons remains our greatest challenge. TAFTA manages 13 well organised and secure residential facilities within the greater Durban area, that cater for the specific needs of the elderly – including 3 frail care units and 4 Assisted Living facilities.

to rent or buy on our Life Rights Scheme.
We have a full time Maintenance Department, which takes care of routine repairs to our buildings, as well as renovations of bathrooms, kitchens and communal living areas.
The social workers are responsible for assisting and empowering older people to lead a better quality of life. Practical advice and information about resources available to older people, theraputic counselling and budgeting, which all form part of the service, along with providing relevant information on ageing and other related issues. These services include Ageing In Place, Home Based Care and Meals on Wheels, which enable elderly people to continue living in their own homes for as long as possible. The Operations Division reaches out to over 5500 older people monthly, through the social workers, as well as our four Wellness Centres
and various clubs, which are popular meeting grounds and jointly boast a membership of over 2000 older people.
Value for money and service excellence are critical standards that are maintained by our Procurement Department, which is responsible for negotiating contracts with various outsourced service providers. We also have our own IT Department, which supports staff and strives to improve efficiency via technology.
