If you are over the age of 60 and you reside in the greater Durban area  (from Umhlanga Rocks in the North to Wentworth in the South and Hilary to the West), Tafta is here to help you.

Our services are available to everyone – regardless of race, religion or financial situation. It is our policy to do the greatest possible good for the greatest possible number of people, with no thought of who deserves help, but only of who needs help.

We provide a range of services aimed at enabling older men and women to continue living as independent members of the community, in their own homes for as long as possible.

When this is not longer possible, we provide a variety of affordable accommodation options.

There is no charge for Social Work consultations or visits.


Make Tafta your first port of call whenever you need useful information on any aspect related to older persons.

We help with:

  • Retirement seminars
  • Financial planning seminars
  • Wills & bequests
  • Information about the ageing process
  • Elder abuse
  • Information for family members who are caring for aged relatives, stroke patients or those with Alzheimer’s disease.
