This project was established to serve the formerly disadvantaged aged and disabled community of Lynnville.  The Centre caters to bring the aged together to socialize and have a nourishing meal, and they are also able to take part in the following skills programmes.

• AET,
• Sewing
• Knitting
• Crochet
• Bead work

Twice a week on the Tuesday and Thursday, a qualified Staff Nurse sees to the needs of the residents.  Visiting them in their homes and seeing to any possible problems / complaints.  The Staff Nurse does foot care, monitors their vital signs and takes vital information to make sure that the correct medication is issued to the residents.  Each resident has a complete medical card and nursing plan.  The Staff Nurse goes to the local clinic Poli Clinic to get necessary medication for the residents, or if needed will refer the resident to the Witbank Hospital for care.
The housing consists of 7 communes, each commune houses 8 older or disabled persons, thus the project can house 56 older or disabled persons.  Those wanting to become residents of Mthimkhulu have to go through a screening process by the Management of the Witbank society and the Department of Social Development due to the housing being partially subsidized.

The resident receives three meals, tea, snacks and all their washing.  Housekeepers attend to the residents and care for them.  The Housekeepers are trained by the Staff Nurse on various health and safety aspect that can affect the aged that they work with.

After caring and seeing to all the needs of the aged, fundraising is an absolute priority.  There is a constant need and the day today running costs need to be catered for such as:

• Security  - 24 hour controlled entrance security, Mag Touch, beams and frequent patrolling of the grounds.
