PADCA is a vibrant, dynamic non-profit organisation based in Pietermaritzburg, a leader in senior care in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands (in 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 offers an extensive range of products and services, with a range of facilities at various pricing points. Whether the senior is looking to stay within the community or in one of the accommodation facilities, we strive to give them the support they need. The Social Work Department is intrinsic to the value PADCA adds.

The range of services ensures we are able to meet our seniors’ needs no matter the changes in health and financial circumstances - so seniors can remain within the PADCA family, utilising the service that best suits their lifestyle and budget. The Eden Alternative (person-centred care) forms a key part of PADCA’s point of difference.

We offer the hand of friendship to fellow organisations in the sharing of knowledge, expertise and resources and are active on various forums to continually uphold standards and the rights of senior citizens.

Older Persons Campaign

Last year we launched our awareness campaign #GOBLUE, which was aimed at creating awareness around the needs of the seniors in our community and the various ways individuals, schools or businesses could assist. We were overwhelmed at the response we received from the community so this year we are going all out to make a bigger impact. Older Persons Awareness week officially runs from 30 September until 6 October but PADCA will be creating awareness for the entire month of September.
