TAFTA retirement complexes, residences and blocks of flats are open to all persons over the age of 60. Applicants must have been a permanent resident in Durban for at least one year prior to applying, and should have a minimum income of a State Pension. If you do not have a State Pension, our social worker can help you apply.
At some of our residences, preference may be given to older persons with limited income who are frail or in dire need.
How to apply

Your application will be assessed by the screening committee and an interview arranged. If successful, you will be placed on the waiting list (if applicable) for the specific accommodation required. You will be able to check the progress of your application by logging into your account at www.tafta.org.za/application at any time.
