Rand Aid Association Retirement Villages need assistance

Rand Aid Association retirement villages are committed to the elderly in Lyndhurst and surrounds. While very few non-profit organisations have been able to survive the harsh economic climates we’ve seen in the past few years, Rand Aid Association has pulled out all stops to ensure its legacy of er 100 years survives.

In the past, the organisation has enjoyed support from corporate South Africa. But, recently it seems the indigent aged have become a forgotten focus when it comes to Corporate Social Investment (CSI).

Rand Aid retirement villages need assistance on so many levels to ensure we continue to meet the daily needs of the elderly who form part of our subsidised accommodation projects and outreach programmes.

Rand Aid Association retirement villages are committed to the wellbeing of the elderly

Rand Aid Association’s Tarentaal offers subsidised rental accommodation for the elderly with limited means while Thembalami caters for men and women over 65 who are physically or mentally frail and who are in dire need of frail care.

Tarentaal caters for the many senior citizens who receive just their government pension. The home offers 110 one-bedroom and 190 bedsitter apartments.

The home offers a number of facilities to residents leaving little need for them to have to travel but if they need to, we arrange weekly trips to Balfour Park and Greenstone Shopping Centres by bus.

We offer focused personal care and wellbeing at Tarentaal – with 24-hour nursing care and a range of other services. Our staff work tirelessly to create a healthy living environment for our residents.

Thembalami, meaning “My Hope”, offers frail care to our senior citizen residents who have very little to offer in terms of payment. Many residents at our retirement villages suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Possibly, the most heart rendering of all, is how few family visits these residents. As the general public, we realise we are ageing, but we do not take proper care of the aged in our very own families at retirement villages .

If you are able to assist the residents of Tarentaal or Thembalami retirement villages or would like to contribute financially, please contact Carol Steyn at 011 882 2510 or email csteyn@randaid.co.za
