PADCA is a vibrant, dynamic non-profit organisation in Pietermaritzburg, a leader in senior care in the Kwa-Zulu-Natal Midlands, South Africa and a resource of choice for senior citizens and their families.

We support people through the aging process, offering a continuum of services and care for seniors across the whole financial spectrum.

PADCA’s extensive range of services supports seniors both in the community and with more formal care. The social work department is intrinsic to the value PADCA provides, serving the community by developing social clubs and support groups, supplying information and counselling, linking you to resources, responding to emergencies and investigating abuse.

Our home care services operate in the city and rural areas, and we offer respite (temporary convalescent care), the hire of equipment and sale of adult incontinence products.

OUR ACCOMMODATION INCLUDES:

• independent living, either to rent or purchase on life- right basis;

• residential accommodation; and

• frail care, including dementia care

We offer the hand of friendship to fellow organisations in the sharing of knowledge, expertise and resources. We are active in advocacy and lobbying, serving on various forums to uphold standards and the rights of senior citizens. For more details call 033 345 4711, email reception@padca.co.za or visit www.padca.co.za to read more on Older Persons Awareness Week. - Supplied
