ABOUT US

Actively involved in the promotion and enrichment of the lives of the aged

AboutIntro
The Laudium Care Services for the Aged is a non-profit initiative and is actively involved in the promotion and enrichment of the lives of the aged.

We aim to promote ageing gracefully by focussing on active ageing, home based care and social services as outlined by the South African Department of Social Services.

The aged, through the process of living their lives and experiences, have inevitably become old. They were once young and vibrant and contributed socially, economically and morally in order to lay the foundations for a sound value system in our societies. The continuity of life itself emanates from the aged — yet we tend to overlook these people. Seniors throughout our communities  have the desire to see their remaining years on earth being lived independently  with grace and dignity. Let us try to bring some joy into the limited life spans of  the frail and aged. It is not their privilege but their right to receive all the comforts  that life has to offer.

Vision

To be able to provide continuous assistance as well as a supportive environment in which our elderly can age gracefully.

Mission
